Join the AMUSF

How will joining AMUSF benefit me and my company?

Full membership of the AMUSF is open to all practitioners within the crafts of Upholstery and Soft Furnishers who are based either in the UK or The Republic of Ireland. Membership is held by the company not an individual although it is recognised that many may well be sole traders rather than larger limited companies. It is though beholding on the applicant to demonstrate that the employee(s) within the company are able to produce work to a high standard whilst offering excellent customer service. It is not envisaged that a company where the principal has less than three years post qualification/training experience would be ready for full membership. They can though apply for Associate membership to stay in touch with us as their company grows.

Applications are also welcome from Trade Suppliers within our crafts.

Training organisations may also apply to be members if they also produce commercial work but cannot link membership to their training unless they are delivering our qualifications and have become an Approved Training Centre.
