Bluewater Padded Accents was started in 1980 by Sandy as she made padded caps for water beds. She worked out of the basement of her house. At the time, she supplied her products to 19 stores across Canada. As that industry started shrinking, she decided to expand her skills. Sandy had a boat that was in need of new canvas, so she figured it was worth a try. Once the canvas was completed, others could see what was possible on their own boats in Sandy’s hands.
The new orders coming in made her move to the garage to accommodate the needs of boaters. It wasn't long before business started to drastically pick up further. Sam soon joined the business as a partner. Sam took on the upholstery end of the business as well as frames for the boats. Together, they decided a new, larger building was necessary to keep up with the upholstery demand. Two properties adjacent to the shop were purchased. The house in the middle property was torn down for parking. The far building that was once a dance hall was turned into the upholstery division.
