About Us - Our People
“Regard your good name as the richest jewel you can possibly be possessed of -- for credit is like fire; when once you have kindled it you may easily preserve it, but if you once extinguish it, you will find it an arduous task to rekindle it again."
Owner & Founder/ Little Bit of Everything
Cheryl has earned an engineering degree from Michigan Technological University. Though earning the degree was seemingly a departure from the canvas /upholstery industry, the education in spacial design, and training in developing detail, has only served to enhance her love of "craft". Cheryl has more than 20 years experience working in the upholstery/canvas industry.

Bob has more than 24 years of experience working in the furniture/upholstery industry. His skills include frame construction, wood repair and refinishing, spring tying, and three direction fabric matching.
