Kim and Bill Chagnon


Hi, we’re Bill and Kim Chagnon, owners of Kim’s Upholstery. We started our upholstery business as a hobby, and soon turned it into a business to provide additional income for our family. We’ve spent years helping hundreds of families give their old furniture new life.

With a combined 30+ years in running a successful upholstery business, we decided to create a community to help others to learn the art and craft of upholstery. Learning and teaching upholstery has become our passion. We now have helped thousands of people from all around the world learn a skill that has become their passion as well.

Whether you want to learn upholstery as a hobby, or to earn an income, Kim’s Upholstery has a proven track record of helping great people just like you achieve amazing results. This is now our full time business, and we absolutely love spending our days creating training content, instructional videos, and supporting our members.

“You saved the day for me as I proceeded to make this queen size headboard (that I had NOT done before). I am enclosing pictures for you to see. I DID love working on it. We delivered it yesterday to an awfully pleased couple. They couldn’t stop “oohing and “aahing” over it. My husband and I were kinda proud ourselves!!!! Many thanks again!!! Most gratefully yours.”


“I’m so very impressed with the levels of interaction and the convenient features to help us members reach the information we need for our upholstery businesses. Many of us sewers and upholsterers are not often “techno” savvy with web sites, but we depend on them often, and you’ve made this site friendly and visually attractive for our needs. Well done!”


“I have been searching for how to make a cushion for my outdoor furniture. Been nervous for two days…that is until I viewed your videos. The instructions were clear and easy to understand.”


“This is my first attempt and without your tutorials I’d be in big trouble. Seems like every time my husband comes in the room, any room, he sees me with my head glued to my iPad watching your tutorials. I told him it was the best $25 a month I’d spent in a long time!! Thank you!”
