Looking for Upholstery Shop in Dallas

I'm getting ready to replace the foam and reupholster the front goucho in my new 65 Tradewind. Can anyone recommend an upholstery shop in the Dallas area.
Thanks

Send a message via AIM to kitchenclose
I'll be doing the same but here in Seattle.

Have you checked dallas / fort worth skilled trade services classifieds - craigslist

Here's a posting from this site. Upholstery Services

I have someone coming to my house to bid on the project and I found her on craigslist.

Good Luck
Let's share pictures after the project.

Several years ago, when it was time to start figuring out our cushions, we went to several fabric warehouses. We got recommendations from the workers at the warehouse. They know all the good upholsterers. One individual who works out of his garage as an independant was recommended to use by several different suppliers. He was able to slip us in between several cockpits he was working on. We are very happy with the results and have recommended him to others.

Many years ago they assisted us on a livingroom sofa. We just visited their new store in Frisco last week, the people were very helpful. I presume they have access to dense foam for an Airstream goucho and they could use your old cushions as patterns.

Looking for Upholstry Shop in Dallas

We have used Payne Upholstery in Greenville, Tx. They do a real good job and we have really been pleased with their choices of fabric.

We have used them on two of our couches in our Airstreams and a couch in our home. His name is Dennis.

Greenville is east of Dallas, about 45 minute drive.

Good Luck,

The folks at Childress were very helpful.They can definately get the foam and as you know from their shop in Frisco they have tons of fabric on hand.
