CAN I SUPPLY MY OWN FABRIC?
Most upholsterers will work with the customers fabric. However there are a few things
to consider. Your upholsterer cannot guarantee your fabric against wearabilty or flaws.
There are other supplies that are neccessary when upholstering a piece of furniture. To
cover these costs, [which are generally covered in the cost of the fabric] most
upholsterers have what is called a cutting charge, in addition to the labor charge.

HOW DO I CHOOSE AN UPHOLSTERER?
That was one of the reasons this site was started. A group of Professionals and Artisans
that have been in the field for a minimum of 5 years. Most of our members have
been in operation for much longer than that. We tried to eliminate the need for you to
just "take pot luck" so to speak, when choosing an upholsterer.
NEW VERSUS REUPHOLSTER
If your current furniture has a good frame and is comfortable and you like the style,
then reupholstery may be your best choice. The finished product may cost almost as much
as a moderately priced piece of new furniture, but you'll have exactly what you want and
the fabric and materials used in the reupholstery will be of better quality.
