My antique couch was in very poor repair. Barb made me feel confident that she could do the job, and she even discussed my fabric samples with me, with the result that I think I made an excellent choice. Unfortunately, Barb encountered more challenges than anticipated with the couch (which she explained to me), which did increase the cost. It would have been helpful to me to have some idea of how much of an increase I was facing. The couch, when finished, was superb. I was really impressed by the job Barb was able to do on the couch. I really enjoyed working with Barb and her sister--appreciated their skill and their sense of humour. Would I work with them again? Definitely!
