About

Matthew Nafra­now­icz completed a BS in Biology at the Univer­sity of Wiscon­sin-Stevens Point in 1997. Matthew has been uphol­ster­ing furni­ture since 1999. He took up the craft as he looked for winter work to comple­ment his ornitho­log­i­cal field­work in summers. Matthew’s enthu­si­asm for tradi­tional furni­ture uphol­stery devel­oped during an appren­tice­ship in Paris, France in 2001 – 2002. After return­ing to Wiscon­sin, he opened his uphol­stery work­shop, The Straight Thread, in 2002.

Zach McDole competed a BFA in Studio Art at the Univer­sity of Wiscon­sin-Madison in 2006. He is a self-taught wood­worker and an accom­plished furni­ture uphol­sterer. Zach came to work at The Straight Thread in 2006.
