The birth of SitUpon SeatsAt the same time, up in the fells at Uldale, Steve's mum, Janice, was running Country Seats, a small business specialising in cane and rush seating. She invited Ally to come and learn the trade, and do some work for her. Ally was soon completely hooked on this new skill, and when the time came for Janice to retire, Ally took it over, moved it down to the coast, and renamed it SitUpon Seats.
The website takes offEver since then we've done both - musical instrument repairs, and woven seating. As the internet took off, we started selling seating materials through our website, as well as doing repairs in house.
Laid-back and friendlyWe're not a huge corporation full of faceless drones. We're a laid-back, friendly, family business who have time to take an interest in our customers' projects, chat on the phone, and write copious emails full of detailed instructions when someone asks for advice.
We're passionate about music, and about chairs. And you're very welcome at our newly refurbished website.
