I have used several of Chervan’s frames over the years and can attest to their great quality and customer service. However, I had no idea how big they really were. I can’t wait to tour their facility with you this year and learn all about a new venture they will be sharing with us. (Did I mention they have an upholstery department? WOW!)

Following our tour, we will gather back at the hotel for a lunch buffet which will be covered by this year’s registration fee to attend the meetup.

TESTIMONIALS

What people are saying about our upholstery meetup…

“I attended the 2018 Upholstery Meetup and had a blast. In my business, I focus on more draperies and pillows than upholstery, so I decided an upholstery meetup would provide me with information I had little knowledge about. And it did! We had many educational opportunities but we had time to socialize and get to know the other attendees, who I now call friends. I had so much fun I decided to attend the 2019 Upholstery Meetup too.”

Donna Cash, Owner, Designs By Donna

“The 2018 meet-up was a great experience. Where else would I have had the opportunity to see chair frames manufactured from start to finish? Or have personalized service at an industrial sewing machine store where I saw machines that I did not even know existed? All of the fabric stores were fantastic – and shopping is so much better when you are doing it with 20 new friends!”

Kip Ford, Lulu Kate Designs

“When I signed up for the first Upholstery Meetup, I had no idea what a lasting impact just 3 days would have! Kim went above and beyond to make sure the trip was packed with relevant tours, visits and networking opportunities that had a real & practical benefit to those attending. Aside from the structured activities, meal times provided a relaxed atmosphere to really get to know the other individuals.”

Donna Scott Johnson, Lulu Kate Designs
