Meet Cyndi Marty
Creator, volunteer, seamstress, entrepreneur, mom, and wife- I do a little of it all! I’m Cyndi and I enjoy creating unique custom softgood pieces with designers and homeowners. The best part, these new creations help our planet by saving textiles from our landfills. I have been sewing and dabbling in textiles for over the last 40 years. Everything I have done over my life has lead me to where I am today and I am excited to create custom design pieces with you.
Meet Christina Ridder

For years Chris not only designed custom window treatments for clients, but also sewed them. This experience has given her a thorough understanding of the intricacies involved in creating beautiful draperies, cornices, swags and valances. When she isn’t working, Chris enjoys spending time with her family. She celebrated 31 years of marriage this past summer with her husband Ken and has twin boys, Tyler and Brandon, and a new daughter-in-law named Kayla.

It's Question & Answer time...
How is your business focused on helping the community?
99% of our raw goods that we turn into custom fabric designs were destined for the landfill. We collect fabric and other materials from high-end fabric showrooms and interior designers after the product is discontinued or obsolete. And, then we are able to create one of a kind designer quality soft goods.
Who does CMP+ support & how?
As a woman-owned business, I love supporting women. Hiring people that need work, that need the income as artisans and staying loyal to them. A better world, a better community make a better company.
How does a CMP+ design process work?
It all starts with art and our art is “PILLOWS”! And, anything else you can make from fabric to enhance the decor of the home. Pillows, ottomans, Poufs, Floor Cushions, Pet Beds, Blanks & Throws. We offer only high-end designer quality fabrics from $100- $300 a yard. Because the fabric is donated we don’t charge for the fabric. So, the end-user can design their own one of kind pillow using $200 a yard fabric and our design start at $56.
Who picks out the final fabric choices?
All of our product is designed by you – the client. CMP+ will guide you through the creation process, so your soft goods are “yours” because you designed them.
Can I see the fabric choices in person?
We invite our clients to come directly into our studio and host a “Pillow Party” where friends, colleagues, or whomever you would have attend get together and design fun items for their spaces. The best part is that CMP+ is so determined to give back that we will donate 10% of all party proceeds to your favorite charity of 501c3 organization.
