    Who inspires you? What do you aspire to?

    The newly formed National Upholstery Association invites you to attend an Upholstery symposium as a pre-event to the Custom Workroom Conference.  We are proud to have Bruno Paulin-Lopez of Atelier de France, Cynthia Blekachek of The Funky Little Chair, Grant Trick of Design Industry by Grant Trick and Rachel Fletcher of Knox Upholstery.  

    Moderated by Elizabeth DeCrescenzo of Nailed It Upholstery, the panelists who come from vastly different backgrounds ranging from formal and traditional training to none at all, will take questions from the crowd. They will discuss what and who inspires them, how they continue to improve on their skills, and what they view as quality upholstery.  They will also be giving personal insight into the processes used in their workrooms and professional lives.


    Pick up your CWC registration pack early at the symposium.

    Light refreshments will be served during the symposium, and CWC registrants can take advantage of the hosted happy-hour at the conclusion of the event, or move to the hotel bar to continue the upholstery get together.

    Cost: $30.00 per person - No refunds

    Bonus: The first 50 people to register for the event will receive a copy of Professional Upholstering: All the Trade Secrets by Frank Destro Jr.


    Registration opens April 25th!  Register for the symposium, and sign up to be notified when you can become a founding member of the National Upholstery Association!

    The National Upholstery Association’s symposium is sponsored by RONCO INDUSTRIES - serving the upholstery industry since 1984 and by our preferred Facebook social hub - the Professional Upholsterers Network.

    Additional Contribution from Albany Foam And Supply.
