    was proud to report that amongst the qualifications there were six passes with Distinction and one with a Credit The presentations were made by Ron Mercure the President of the AMUSF on Saturday 10th May during our annual open day at their classrooms in Ellesmere Shropshire Joan Hayes FAMU welcomed all the guests especially thanking other AMUSF member upholsterers for attending Joan stated that it is important for young students to meet and talk with established member businesses to learn more about the industry In the past this has resulted in successful placements within these businesses for some lucky students Below are some photographs from the day This entry was posted in Courses J A Milton News on May 14 2014 by jamilton Reupholstery Beautiful Button Back Chair As well as being a leading supplier of upholstery supplies and courses J A Milton also create made to order furniture and re upholster furniture Our master upholsterer Joan Milton FAMU has been working in the trade for 25 years and along with her staff has the expertise to work on all types of upholstered furniture modern or traditional One piece that our upholsterers have finished is this beautiful button back chair for a client Joan and Alison said the fabric was a challenge to get the pattern right but are very pleased with the finished piece The client chose to use our Old Gold Spec Nail Trim which brought a lovely finish to the overall piece This trim is a great way to add an extra touch to your furniture and is available from our website in three finishes The trim comes as a flexible piece which can be shaped according to the frame and every few nails there is a space to hammer in a real nail to secure it to the frame This entry was posted in Reupholstery on May 12 2014 by jamilton J A Milton s Car Upholstery and Trimming Course Rod who is our Social Media and Marketing Assistant here at J A Milton Upholstery Supplies decided to jump in and experience one of our courses for himself He admits he had limited practical experience in upholstery but has learnt a few hints and tips while working here What project did you decide to complete and why The project I decided to do in the car trimmings course was my mx5 mk1 seats My mx5 seats looked a bit worn out and I wanted them to look a bit more up to date and more attractive I put red and black together as it looks good I found the car trimmings course very rewarding and satisfying The teacher has loads of experience 30 years in car upholstery so he knew everything about cars Did you have any areas in particular that you were less confident on before you started the course I did have one fear and that was using the sewing machine because I have not used a sewing machine since I left school Would you consider doing further upholstery in the future I would love to do more upholstery in the future because you can see what you have done and be pleased with the outcome of your project Anything else you want to add I d recommend coming to J A Milton upholstery Classes and learning a trade A tip would be that if you would like to go on this course bring a seat from a scrap yard and don t bring seats from your car as this only adds pressure to you if you are a complete novice This way you could learn the skills and then use them when you get back home without risk This is a brilliant course it would be good to see some school leavers entering into this trade as this business will never die out There are millions of cars lorries motor bikes and coaches on the road and they will all want fixing one day About the Course Our Car Trimming and Upholstery Courses run at least once a month and involves two days in our Ellesmere workshop You are invited to bring your own project such as a door panel or seat to work on As each course has a maximum of only four students you get plenty of one to one help and guidance To find out more information about our courses please click here or call our sales office on 01691 624 023 If you would like to be featured with your story or project please contact rhianna jamiltonupholstery co uk This entry was posted in Courses on May 8 2014 by jamilton J A Milton s Two Day Upholstery Course Part of the J A Milton Workshop A few months after I joined J A Milton I was lucky enough to be able to attend one of our two day Upholstery Courses and learn to upholster a small footstool traditionally I wanted to learn more about how to actually use the items we sell so that I can understand queries and help our customers with issues they may be having with their upholstery projects While I certainly have a long way to go I really enjoyed the two days and have learnt how to create the first few layers of the traditional upholstery pad The course runs on two consecutive days from 9 15am to 5pm including a provided lunch The day started at around 9 15am when I went into our workshop and was greeted by Alison our course co ordinator and Steve Franklin our guest upholstery tutor I also introduced myself to the other four people on the same course as me Two of the students had already been on our courses before and were happy to continue with their work stopping to occasionally ask Steve questions However I was happy to see there were also two students who were complete beginners like myself The three of us were all working on similar pieces and wanted to learn
