By Hand

Helen has assembled her fabric library over the years by hand – that is to say, by experience of handworking these textiles herself, not just selling them to be handled by another, who may or may not understand how warp and weft might behave on a given project. Characteristics of certain fiber combinations, colorways and dyes, pattern repeats, countries of origin and technique of weaving, surface design as well as cost per yard – all contribute in helping clients find the perfect fabric for their application.

Domestic and International Designer Fabrics

Leather, fabrics of many kinds, interior vinyls are sold for DIY projects and for the custom work orders done in-house. To-the-trade designer fabrics as seen online and in studio samples are available to purchase on-order and can be shipped anywhere in the continental US, as full yardage – please see Helen’s preferred vendor list below, as a way to jump-start the conversation you plan to have with her regarding selection of final fabric for your sewn or upholstered project.

Interior Designers: please specify vendor name/pattern number for fabrics intended for your client projects, when inquiring about workroom services of cushions and pillows through Miller Upholstering

Vintage/Antique Textiles

As a lifelong collector, vintage and antique textiles are as familiar in Helen’s hands as the latest in contemporary technology fabrics. Through her own collections and personal study of the art and history of weaving, printing, furniture making and upholstering through the ages, she brings to her business of Miller Upholstering a deeper understanding of fabrics and how they enhance our homes and lives.

Depend on her expert knowledge of fabrics and period styles as well as the latest in decor trends to elevate and revitalize your rooms with heritage and designer fabrics that you may never have imagined for yourself… but she did!
