About Us

Amy & Erin

French Broad Sewing & Upholstery was started in 2019 as a marriage of two independent businesses run by Amy De Lira and Erin Hardy. Amy and Erin worked in the same small textile sewing and manufacturing industry in Asheville, North Carolina for over a decade before they discovered one another and fell in business-love. A mutual admiration for one another's work, and reliance on a similar set of tools and equipment soon made obvious the need for a union -  and thus was born French Broad Sewing and Upholstery.


Located mere feet from the beautiful river for which it is named, French Broad Sewing and Upholstery offers a wide range of services. From boutique, small-batch production and custom, one-of-a-kind design, to commercial, residential and automotive upholstering, French Broad Sewing and Upholstery is uniquely qualified and conveniently located to service your personal project or manufacturing needs.
