Upholstery is one of those services that most people need at some point, but only few know how to actually do themselves, so they hire a professional.
Whether you are recovering furniture, or working in the automotive industry replacing vehicle seat covers, the skills you need to become a professional upholsterer are similar throughout the industry. Even boats and jet skis have upholstery, so this is a great skill to learn.
