Meetings

Monthly meeting schedule

The PUAM meetings are monthly meetings to support each other and to share upholstery knowledge. We'd love to have your input on topics you'd like to have discussed or presentations on different upholstery techniques. It is easiest to show techniques in a shop environment but we are open to meetings in rooms provided by restaurants, libraries, community centers, etc.  If you have a topic or location that we can use, please contact us at  dlsguenth@gmail.com Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
