Where it all began. Around 35 years ago, Tim Walker participated in an elective automotive upholstery class at college. A little later he was offered $100 to upholster a sofa for a friend of the family. Reluctantly Tim agreed and upholstered his first sofa. Word spread and before he knew it, Tim had a full schedule on the side of his full time job. He was an automotive mechanic during the day, and an upholsterer by night. Years later Tim would teach his sons the art of upholstery. Soon enough his sons were married and had full time jobs of their own. One horrific day the family received a call, there had been an accident and Tim's arm was caught in a lathe. His arm was crushed and he could never go back to work as a mechanic. The incident was bitter sweet because the family did what family should do, they pulled together and said "we all know how to upholster." Thus opening Walker Fabrics in May 5th 2005. If it wasn't for that dreadful accident, Walker Fabrics surely would not be here today.
Walker Fabrics opened as a full upholstery fabric store and upholstery work room. Growth has taken place over the years and now Walker Fabrics carries upholstery and drapery fabrics as well as upholstery and drapery supplies. Carrying several different lines of fabrics like Green House Design, Barrow, Micheal Jon Design, Duralee, Norbar, United Fabrics and many other.
