  1. Nancy Kennedy

    I recently reupholstered my first wingback chair. It would have been impossible without Kim’s video. It’s all the little things you would never think about or figure out on your own that makes Kim’s videos so valuable. The difference between ok and excellent!

  2. Rhonda Shanahan

    I love this video. Kim gives me the confidence to complete my projects. The instruction is easy to follow from start to finish. Thank you for this wonderful video!
