“We like to use as many American-made products as possible,” Cathy said. “We also offer a lot of fabrics made in America. I love to work with a lot of different fabrics, and we work with a lot of designers as well.”
In addition, the company can do upholstery work on boats and motorhomes, though it has moved away from automobile tops.
“We also do commercial upholstery,” Cathy said. From doctors and dentists offices, including exam and medical tables, to hospitals and colleges, “we can do upholstery anywhere there is seating.”
The company employs eight full or part-time employees, “some who have been here for more than 30 years,” she said. “We have a lot of experience here.”
Cathy is busy out of the shop as well, a big SU fan, she also takes part in riding and showing quarter horses.
“I have a small hobby farm and boarding facility in Baldwinsville,” Cathy said. “Yes, I am busy, but I love it.”
Her children helped out in the shop when they were growing up and, though they have taken different career paths, learned a lot when they worked there.
“They learned about the business and gained organizational skills that help them in their current jobs,” Cathy said. “It helped them in many ways when they started out in their careers.”
