"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."


"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."


"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!"

"Since venturing into the upholstery world, I have tackled a wingback chair, an ottoman, several headboards, dining room chairs, and even a chaise lounge! I can honestly say I could never have done this without the encouragement and training from Kim's Upholstery!"

Diana Hershey, DBH Designs

"I found Kim’s Upholstery training 2 years ago while looking for help with boat upholstery. I knew immediately I was meant to do furniture upholstery. Six months later I opened a workroom and started taking a few easy jobs. Less than 2 years after starting my training with Kim’s Upholstery, I quit my full time job to pursue upholstery as a permanent career."
