  • Sign it! Upholstery is new here...

    Hello there,
    I stumbled across this website in search for some craft fairs to show our items... We're a little bit different here:-
    Sign it! Upholstery was created to provide employment opportunities for profoundly deaf and hard of hearing ladies!


    Sign it! Upholstery was started 10th April 2010 under the guidance of a volunteer who was an upholsterer working for Sunseeker and spe******ing in interior upholstery. The girls are continually supported by Cas Jones, Communication Support Worker; and Julie Eaton supporting teacher.


    They started with a footstool made in the traditional style using tacks and hammers. They produced very high quality stools with solid wood Queen Anne style legs polished with bees wax. An important part to this project is recycling – be it reusing old stool legs and using scrap materials. We rely on Sunseeker donating their scraps, off-cuts, end of rolls and scrap foam to keep our project going.


    We are still going strong now... we make handbags, cushions, bean bags etc for craft fairs. But also upholster chairs, stool, even wheelchairs!


    We are very community based and thrive on volunteering our services for some good causes


    For more info, please have a look at our website

          to the Crafts Forum Sign.it. Sounds like a fantastic project you have going there and I hope it goes from strength to strength.

          If you create a signature you can add your website to it so we can all easily see what you all make.
