Creative minds and those working in a creative skill, like upholstery, oftentimes work alone. It is the nature of the work. However, it is so nice to get away at least once a year and network with other creatives in the same space! As an educator, I see the need for networking with our peers. It is how many of us learn new skills and grow in our craft. While our online membership community provides the ability to ask questions and network virtually, there really is something about an in-person connection that cannot be replaced. Members of our upholstery community have the ability to meet their peers through attending Upholstery Meetups! These annual events are always so much fun and full of learning and networking.
