I've recently received the following question:

Hi there! I'm looking to find upholstery training/classes for my dad in Illinois. I'm having a heck of a time finding anything. Any suggestions? we live south of Chicago and would prefer something in the south suburbs but understand they are hard to come by.
We're from Tinley Park, Illinois 60477

If anyone knows of anything, please post here.  If you know of anything else around the country that might help others, please let me know here too.

I have taken 2 classes from them and cant say enough good things about them. The Bimini Enclosure class taught me how to make a Bimini enclosure in one step using their natural intersection. Beautiful finish inside and out. I just finished taking the Dodger workshop and we made 2 different style dodgers. Again beautiful finish inside and out. I would highly recommend Mark and Deb for all your canvas training.

It looks like due to recent advertising purchases and book sales, I'll be keeping the site running and available for at least another year.  I'd like to thank those that have made this possible, as I really didn't want to take down all this valuable information that has been built on for over 15 years and by so many talented upholsterer world wide.

Thank you everyone for your kind words.  It will be a very hard day when I finally do take the site down. 

I've tried everything to try and figure out a way to organize and attempt to archive the grand amount of information in the forum, but it is just not possible.  There are more than 45,000 post in about 4,600 topics and I'll be backing it up here at home and still work on finding anyway to convert it.

Thanks for all the support and friendship from everyone over the years.

Much gratitude to Jack and Stacey for keeping the site running.  Over the years, I have learned a great deal and met some wonderful people.  When I joined, I was afraid I wasn't "good enough" to even ask a question - but everyone has been so generous with their time and expertise. (Even with non-upholstery related questions - I think I am the techno-illiterate of the group!!) We have become an upholstery family!

I feel the same... It's like losing a dear friend... I'm not good with words, but know that this is a special place. I made many good friends and learned a ton about upholstery and business. 

Thank you Jack for all your hard work.  Too bad this can't be archived and saved somehow.  I'd buy a copy.

Dede.. You're not the only one in tears.

Jack, I can't thank you and Stacey enough for all the hard work, endless hours, and not a little $$$ that you put into this site. I'm sad to see it fade away, but it's understandable.....

Again, Bob said this with far more eloquence than I ever could.  Please know how incredibly grateful I am for everything you have done, including more behind the scenes than I will ever know.  And now I'm crying again and the monitor is blurry.
