Important Terms to Know About Upholsterery Supplies
Upholsterers are professionals that change fabric, replace auto seats, make repairs and clean upholstery of all kinds. If your couches or chairs need a new look, consider hiring an upholsterer for the job. These professionals, who often work at furniture stores, need the right supplies in order to do their jobs. Following are some important terms to keep in mind when looking for upholsterer supplies.

Upholstery Hammer: Also known as a tack hammer, this lightweight tool can secure fabric to frames using small nails or tacks. Today, staple guns are a more efficient method of securing fabric.

Upholstery Regulator: A tool used to smooth irregularities in stuffing underneath upholstery coverings. It looks like a needle but is heavier, available in a variety of lengths and gauges. It comes in handy for poking through layers to adjust the stuffing.

Stuffing Iron: Similar to an upholstery regulator, this tool pushes stuffing into the corners of upholstered furniture. This thin piece of steel features a toothed edge to latch on to loose stuffing and place it elsewhere.

Webbing Stretcher: A tool used to stretch fabrics to make them fit tight. Used mostly for stretching of webbing in regards to 8-way hand tying, this tool features metal spikes that latch onto the webbing, grab it and make it snug.

Upholstery:Derived from the word upholder, this term involves seats, padding, springs, webbing and fabric in regards to furniture.

Upholstery Tool Kits: Kits containing everything needed for upholstery repair or care, from scissors and trimmers to tack strip and pliers.

If you want to effectively restore a chair, upholster a new automobile, or get new draperies made for a bed, you must understand this is a two part process. It depends both on the upholsterer and the company that creates the tools and supplies that the individual uses.

There are two tracks that lead to becoming a skilled upholsterer. First, one can try to obtain an apprenticeship. This type of training usually lasts two to three years, a time period in which the student serves with a master of the trade. The master trains the student in replacing springs, working with leather, and the right types of tools to use with different fabrics. They may specialize in restorations, in which the student will need more specialized training on how to successfully upholster a new seat with velvet, or add extra padding to the design of a headboard. The other route is for upholsterers to attend vocational schools. There are special programs that not only teach the students how to install hypoallergenic textiles, but how to strategically place tacks, or successfully restore the leather seats of an automobile. By the time the crafts person graduates, they should have a great deal of experience working with all types of furniture, from couches to beds. Some may then go into business for themselves, while others may go to work with a carpet cleaning company as a retainer.

We also have the manufacturer that produces all of the necessary supplies, tools and fabrics for the upholsterer. However, not all manufacturers produce all the supplies at their factories. Some may focus on foam, springs, and other padding materials. Others may focus on producing canvas, vinyl, tacks or other supplies. All of these add to the overall success of the industry of upholstery!
