"Upholsterers have always been artists and problem solvers and inventors. In the best of times, and perhaps even more so, in the worst of times. THAT is who we are"
- Cynthia Bleskachek, NUA Board of Directors
"We're upholsterers - we're problem solvers!"
"Reupholstery is rooted in resilience. We do what we can, with what we have, where we are. Together, we will get through this."
