We will make custom cushions for Arts and Crafts built-ins, inglenooks, chairs and benches.
In addition, we can make an appliqued or stenciled cover for your upholsterer to cover a framed Craftsmen bench or Morris chair. In this case the only cost is for fabric and for embroidering your applique choice. Please look at our custom-ordered colored linens and stock neutrals or order a fabric sample packet. You can provide your own fabric, although we need to approve it first to make sure it is embroidery friendly. Your upholsterer will tell you how much fabric you need, but be sure to allow enough to wrap under the wooden frame. Please, of course, contact us with questions or for an estimate.
