Upholstery Magic with Pendleton Wool

From Tattered to Fabulous

As you may know, the Woolen Mill Store offers upholstery service when  purchasing wool fabric from our amazing inventory. One of our customers sent photos of the most adorable child’s chair re-upholstered for their daughter and new grandchild.

Side by side photos of a child's chair. The before shot shows a small winback chair with tattered brown vinyl upholstery. The after chair is covered in Pendleton wool in the "San Miguel" pattern, of ivory and red crosses on a grey background.

Inspiring, yes?

How to Get Started

Please send an email to with the subject line UPHOLSTERY INQUIRY, including the following information:

  • Type of furniture to be upholstered.
  • Dimensions of piece and/or cushions.
  • A photo of the piece to be upholstered.
  • Your choice of fabric – visit the store or see a selection of fabrics by clicking the Fabrics tab at the top of the page.

And what happens next?

We’ll get back to you with a price quote and the next steps. All upholstery orders must be pre-paid. Pickup and delivery service is available for an additional fee.

Pendleton Fabrics at the Western Design Conference

Pendleton and Old Hickory

In September, we worked with Old Hickory (learn more here: ) to cosponsor a booth at the Western Design Conference. Click on photos below to see larger versions.

The booth showcased Old Hickory’s design aesthetic and their amazing handcrafted furniture. We supported their presentation with fabric, blankets and props, and thought you might be inspired by photos of this wonderful booth.

What is the Western Design Conference?

To quote their website:

The Western Design Conference (WDC) brings together artists, scholars, collectors, interior designers, architects, and fashion designers with a passion for the West. From documented American craft, to home design, to fashion, the show is expanding to encompass all aspects of the best of Western design. This event celebrates functional museum-quality creations capturing the spirit of the West.

Pendleton Womenswear – 70 years of style and inspiration at the Woolen Mill Store!

Party with Pendleton

We recently had a wonderful party at our downtown Portland Pendleton store, that included archival garments. See the fun in the movie below.

Our guests loved seeing the garments of the past, and took the time to examine the care and craftsmanship.

Bringing the display to the WMS

Well, guess what? In a Sisterhood of the Traveling Pendleton move, we’ve brought some of our favorite archival garments to the Woolen Mill Store.


Each garment’s history is there for you, along with vintage advertising. While you’re looking over these sweet pieces of Pendleton history, pick up a copy of our WOVEN #5, which tells the story of Pendleton’s line for women alongside a historical timeline for the last 70 years. You can pick up a copy at the store or read it online here:

Click to read WOVEN magazine issue 5 (new tab)

Do come pay us a visit! You can check out the original 49’er that started it all–and that inspired our 1949 Jacket pattern!

See you soon!
