About the Instructor
Anna started doing upholstery in her teens by taking apart some old dining room chairs and upholstering them with an old velvet dress and even reused the tacks. Her love of working with fabric and sewing led her to a furniture manufacturing company where she received on the job training in sewing, fabrication and upholstery. From there she worked at various kinds of upholstery shops gaining a wide variety of experience from building and fabricating frames, to upholstering breakfast nooks to sofas and everything in between. I love what I do and enjoy passing on my skills and tips to others with a desire to learn upholstery
