Q: Is there an advantage to buying fabric from an upholsterer?
A: YES


  • The fabrics are first quality and they have a wide variety for you to select from

  • Rely on your upholsterers' experiences and advice. They know if the fabric you have selected will tailor properly to fit your furniture.

  • Should any damage occur after your job has been completed, due to pet damage, cigarette burns, staining due to spillage, etc., your upholsterer is able to obtain additional yardage to repair the damage, often for as long as two or three years later.





Q: Is there any type of warranty of fabrics purchased from an upholsterer?
A: YES


  • Fabrics purchased from your upholsterer have a limited warranty against fabric manufacturing failures, should such failures occur under normal wear conditions. This limited warranty is backed by the manufacturer and the fabric distributor.

  • Fabric can only be warranted if sold by your upholsterer.

  • Your upholsterer is not able to warranty their work if they are not aware of the quality of fabric that you have furnished.

  • Your upholsterer can help you choose a first quality fabric from their wide selection of sample books.




Q: Are there disadvantages to furnishing my own fabric?
A: YES


  • You lose all warranties unless your upholsterer furnishes your fabric.

  • In many cases the roll your fabric came from is all that is available. Where will you turn for additional fabric should damages occur at a later date?

  • It is a proven fact that many jobs are put in jeopardy when additional fabric is needed and none is available. Situations such as excessive flaws or matching and centering a pattern can result in additional yardage being required that the upholsterer was not aware of when your job was quoted. This increases you cost dramatically.

  • Most fabrics in retail stores are not Scothgarded.




Q: Do I save money on the total job by furnishing my own fabric?
A: NO


  • The cost should be the same whether you buy your fabric from an upholsterer or a retailer.

  • Your upholsterers must maintain the same profit margin whether they are furnishing the fabric and labor or just labor. The overhead remains the same; therefore, if you furnish fabric they have to up their labor for cutting and handling your fabric.

  • What is saved on fabric cost is lost by additional labor charge.

  • Do you buy your own motor oil and take it to the Jiffy Lube or buy your own steak and take it to the restaurant? This is the same situation that your upholsterers are put in when they work with your fabric.
