|Stuff What I Need...

Ok, I need some things and I could use recommendations. If you don't do these things, do you know people who do? Or do you have suggestions for places to go to find people who do these things?
1. Anybody know an upholsterer?
My 40+ year old chair wing chair is losing its bottom and I can't sit in it no more without fear that my butt with simply plunge through. It's covered with something fuzzy, maybe velvet I guess, which is tacked on, and has a wooden frame.
2. Anybody know an ad designer?
I have need of an ad for my editing business, about business card-sized, for some advertising I'd like to do.
But I'm broke, so it would need to be relatively cheap OR in exchange for work (editing, transcribing, physical labor such as gardening, running errands, etc.).
3. I have need for a brief consultation with a professional organizer...
I work in a place that desperately needs reorganizing, possibly including building or assembling things to help us (1) do our jobs and (2) not force anyone to change their habits (e.g., it's gotta be habits that are easy to integrate and objects that are easy to use), and (3) helps communication between various clerks/shifts.
With that in mind, I need someone who can point out ways to better handle the accumulation of physical material, to identify and streamline daily/weekly/monthly work-flow, and to communicate consistently, all in a TINY space. I'm also hoping for some building/design ideas for facilitating those suggestions.
I'm not planning on asking my boss to pay for this consultation, so it needs to be cheap OR brief enough to be cheap but useful OR in exchange for work.
