Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - VOICES - BY SARAH HANEY

Sum­mer is here and it’s time to break out the fam­ily camper and pa­tio fur­ni­ture for out­door fes­tiv­i­ties. To pre­pare, you may want to up­date the up­hol­stery on your out­door or recre­ational fur­ni­ture. El­lis Fabrics and Joe El­lis Up­hol­stery of Ben­tonville pro­vide qual­ity fabrics and ser­vices for all of your in­door and out­door up­hol­stery needs.

A few years ago, Cheryl and her son, Joe El­lis, opened El­lis Fabrics in re­sponse to the needs of Joe’s up­hol­stery cus­tomers. Joe El­lis Up­hol­stery has been in busi­ness since 2008 and does com­mer­cial and res­i­den­tial up­hol­stery in­clud­ing an­tique and leather fur­ni­ture, as well as out­door cush­ions, RV mo­tor home cush­ions, doc­tor and chi­ro­prac­tor of­fices, wait­ing room chairs, fit­ness equip­ment, and dec­o­ra­tive pil­lows. Cus­tom ot­tomans and head­boards can also be built by Joe El­lis Up­hol­stery and up­hol­stered with fabric from El­lis Fabrics. Joe El­lis Up­hol­stery was rec­og­nized by the com­mu­nity as a 2016 Best of the Best Fi­nal­ist and con­tin­ues to serve the com­mu­nity’s up­hol­stery and fabric needs.

The fabrics at El­lis’ may be a dis­con­tin­ued pat­tern or from a store clos­ing, where they were bought at a low price, help­ing El­lis Fabrics sell them at a rea­son­able price. “The fabrics we carry are fabrics that work well for up­hol­stery jobs,” stated Cheryl. “We keep these fabrics at a re­ally rea­son­able price point.” Fabrics range in price any­where from $8.50 to $15 a yard. El­lis also car­ries spe­cial or­der fabric, in­clud­ing gen­uine leather. “What­ever your price point, we try to have some­thing for ev­ery­body,” added Cheryl. In ad­di­tion to the wide va­ri­ety of qual­ity fabrics, there is also an ar­ray of trims from which to choose.

This is the time of year when peo­ple are ready to get out, sit on the deck, or go camp­ing — and out­door fabrics are a top seller dur­ing sum­mer at El­lis Fabrics. Camper and RV own­ers fre­quent the fabric store (as well as Joe El­lis Up­hol­stery) dur­ing the sum­mer months to up­date or fix their up­hol­stery. El­lis Fabrics of­fers a wide range of out­door up­hol­stery fabrics that are per­fect for sum­mer projects.

“We re­ally do have a good se­lec­tion in here, and a lot of bar­gains,” noted Cheryl. “We al­ways carry a lot of rem­nants and small yardages at bar­gain prices, as well as a $5/yard bin.” Many of the rem­nant fabrics are great for craft projects — whether it be to make bags, dog beds, dresses, or cos­tumes.

If you need ad­vice on how to get the look you want, El­lis Fabrics has a de­signer on staff who is avail­able Mon­days and Tues­days. If you are con­fused or over­whelmed by the task of se­lect­ing the right fabrics for your project, you may bring cush­ions, pil­lows, or pic­tures by and the de­signer will help you achieve the look you want.
