If you’ve looked into getting quality and timely reupholstering done in San Diego or the Imperial Valley you know your going to wait along time and pay outrageous prices for fabric and work. I am so pleased with the work Albert did. He was so timely that he surprised me with the drop off! He picked up 2 more pieces and they were done within days. The attention to detail of my heirloom quality pieces was amazing and I couldn’t be happier. Attached are some photos to compare before and after. Thank you Albert and team for making this happen. They will last another 50 plus years!

Wonderful experience working with Stitch1Nine. They helped me through the whole process of picking out the right amount of fabric to coming over and picking up my giant couch I needed a custom slipcover for. When I saw the finished product I couldn’t believe it was the same couch. It looked brand new and the quality was stunning. They were also very easy to work with and great with communication. I would absolutely use them again and recommend them to others. Thanks guys!

Albert was excellent to work with. We had an unusual project, a massage chair, that we wanted to have recovered. The original covering was painted fabric (who knew!) that was peeling badly. He brought samples when he came to do the estimate. We agreed on the estimate, but he waited until the leather arrived to pick up the chair. It was a complex job, they had the chair for about 10 days. It is amazingly beautiful. We he returned the massage chair, I had a Craftsman style chair for which I wanted to have the cushions done. He had some dark leather in the shop left from another job, so offered it to me. He sent comparison pictures of the dark leather to the massage chair leather and the original leather. We weren't home when he texted to say he could deliver the cushions, but he left them on our front porch as requested and we sent him the money via Venmo when we got home. His shop is efficient and does excellent work. I felt the pricing was fair. I would recommend Stitch1Nine without hestitation.

Stich1Nine did a wonderful job to repost my wing chair and the ottoman. He is also very good in providing suggestion and friendly to work with.
