About Kim’s Upholstery2018-10-22T06:28:18+00:00

Kim’s Upholstery is all about helping others to learn the art of upholstery for pleasure and if they want, enabling them to create an income for themselves.

Kim’s Upholstery started as a hobby and turned into a business adding additional income for my family. Wow, have we evolved!!  In 1996 if you had told me that I would be assisting others in learning a craft to create an income for themselves by doing something they love, I would have never believed it. In fact, I probably would have laughed at you.

Learning and teaching upholstery have become my passion.  In the field of upholstery, you never ever stop learning. Today, along with my husband Bill, I help thousands of people from around the world learn a skill that becomes their passion as well. So many of our members have turned that “hobby”, I use the word loosely, into a passion that they not only love but find themselves in a profitable business after taking advantage of the video tutorials in our online membership and attending our hands-on training.

Our online community of members is like a very large family, bound by our addiction to upholstery.  When anyone is needing advice or encouragement there is always someone there to help. By supporting one another we all grow together.  Every member has something to share. Whether it be during our online Q & A’s or in the community forum, members can always ask questions and share an experience that they have had. Many of our members have found the opportunity and met in person after meeting online. I get to meet some of them during our Hands-On Workshops. I have also started what I hope to be an annual Upholstery Meet up where we gather to learn, explore, and share.

I really love my upholstery family and have added a few of the member interviews below so you can see why and get to know them too. The upholstery addiction is real, and I look forward to getting to know you as you follow your upholstery journey.
