About Me

My love of restoring furniture began from watching too much Antique Road show when I was young. This started my passion for antiques, one thing lead to another and I started in a hobby class doing upholstery. This was followed by a City and Guilds qualification from college .As my experience grew I became involved in soft
furnishings and curtain making, which lead to me gaining more City and Guilds
qualifications in these fields.

Over the years I have been asked to upholster, repair or make new items for domestic furniture, modern and traditional, commercial upholstery, woodwork repairs and motor vehicles (car trim). I have taken courses in all of these techniques.

My career spans over a 30 year period, in this time I become a teacher in upholstery at City and Guilds level. I also taught hobby classes in upholstery and curtain making. I have gained a vast knowledge and experience in these techniques and can offer a very widerange of different aspects of upholstery.
