Slipcover Workshop Nov 6-7, 2015


I'm excited to offer another slipcover workshop Nov 6-7, 2015 ! I have 15 years of slipcovering experience and would love to show you some tricks of the trade, whether you are interested in making your own slipcovers or aspire to start your own business at some point.

Workshop Testimonial
I did my first paid job for 2 chairs and ottoman for a neighbor, she loved them.  Bought a couch made for a slipcover at an outlet yesterday for our new house.  Busy sewing all weekend. Guess I'm hooked!

Thanks again for everything, it was a lot of fun!


*Nov 6 and 7th, 2015 (2 day workshop--to ensure everyone isn't rushed and has time to finish their project)

*9am-4pm both days

*Bring a chair, pre washed fabric, thread, tape measure, scissors, quilting pins, and sewing machine with zipper foot (If you are flying in from out of state, I will provide chair and fabric for you)

*Choose a simple lined chair. I wouldn't recommend a wingback for your first project. Wingbacks have a lot more seams and curves and are more time consuming.

*I"ll supply piping, zippers, and serger

*1st day--sew piping, pin fit, and sew main body

*2nd day--add skirt detail and sew box cushion.

*Class sized capped at 4 spots


$250 (Includes lunch both days)


On site at my work studio in Eagle Mountain, UT
