Terry Buckingham is the Instructor for our Upholstery Program located on the Little Rock Air Force Base. She has always been interested in crafts and dabbled in upholstery on and off beginning in 1983. She took an upholstery class offered by the Arkansas Extended Learning Center. Wishing to enhance her skills she later enrolled in upholstery classes at ASU-Beebe. She graduated from the ASUB Upholstery Program. Afterwards she apprenticed with ASU's instructor Eugene Mosley, and took over teaching the classes when he retired.
In addition to teaching, Terry owns a home based upholstery business called "Terry's Upholstery Shop" located in Cabot. She enjoys working with customers and students to recover, redesign, and reupholster. Her motto is "giving new life to the furniture you love."
Terry lives with her husband Steve in Cabot. They have three Llewellyn Setters, a Macaw, and nine Chickens. Her and her husband enjoy fly fishing, gardening, and grilling out in their spare time.
