Welcome to Kate Ronan Upholstery!
I was one of the few kids who paid attention in Home Economics - and Spanish. 7th grade was a good year!
Fast forward 20 years when the only bright spot of my corporate day was the lunch hour often times spent in a fabric store! Soon I was covering any piece of furniture I could get my hands on, wishing I knew how to do it properly. The only upholstery course I found was in Ceredigion, Wales so off I went for two weeks in 2001. After apprenticing and moonlighting for 3 years, I decided it's never to late to become what I might have been and left the rat race to hang out my upholstering shingle. I've been living the dream ever since and want to help others do the same - without having to go to Wales!
Please visit the classes tab for an all inclusive weekend course in Michigan or weekly evening classes in Oak Park.
