I’ve been getting emails about making slipcovers. And yall don’t live near me…you have so much confidence in my slipcovering skillz! I absolutely have to measure your piece of furniture in order to slipcover it. This means you must live within a stone’s throw of me. Sorry.
It got me to thinking though…about featuring all you gals who make slipcovers in other areas. Please email me if you make slipcovers for a living and want to make slipcovers for someone else. I would love to feature different slipcover gals.
I know of a few people…like Gina from Slipcover Chic who lives in Wilmington, NC. She does phenomenal work. Go check out her site! I just received an email from a gal in Greenville, SC who needs some slipcovers. Is there anyone in that area who makes them? Email me…please!

I did my own for the first time last summer and people keep asking me if I will do theirs but I am SO not a seamstress. I know all the mistakes I made and (thankfully) they are all pretty well hidden. I just wanted to comment that every time I see your wingback chair I lust over that fabric. I just happen to have a wingback chair that would look gorgeous covered in that fabric.

I live in (NW) Houston, TX. I dont do it full time, but would work them in my Interior Design Schedule. I wish my sister would get her sewing machine out and start sewing again! She lives in Greenville…
Oh, I love the wingback chair! Wing back chairs are so beautiful, as far as the shape of them, but why do they always have the worst fabric on them?! All wing back chairs need slipcovers, as a general rule. I've been wanting to attempt to make one for my wing back, but just haven't gotten around to it…

I would love to be on your slipcover professionals list. I live in Ohio and service the greater Cleveland/Akron area. You can check out my blog at http://www.cozycottageslipcovers.blogspot.com or my website at http://www.cozycottageslipcovers.com. I also need the customer to be local to my area. The only exception is my custom office chair slipcovers which I can make from measurements.

I have a question…more like getting your thoughts on a subject. Wouldn't it be fun to use sheets for the slipcover fabric? I think that if well done it turn out presentable… or do you think it would just look cheap? I have 2 chairs that I have ignored for far too long but I know that if I use some big ole sheets as fabric I could attack this project (read afford!) sooner rather than later. They'd be washable for sure and I think they'd make super-comfy chairs. Thoughts please?

Do you know anyone in the Houston, TX area that could give me a lesson or two in slipcovering? I've never sewn before but bought a sewing machine recently to slipcover many chairs…like about 12! HELP! I am so ready to learn. Love your blog and I have purchased your ebook…I may just try to teach myself soon.
yessssss! that is exactly what i need. i can barely sew on a button and am in need of someone to sew a slipcover for me BAD! i would love someone to compile a listy.
Are there any Santa Clarita gals out there looking to help and be helped???
thanks for starting this list.. im one of those people emailing you from far away! 🙂 I'm a mediocre sewer (can't even use the word seamstress when talking about me) at best so I've been reluctant to try it but your site has inspired me to think about it again. If only I could convince my talented mother to help me…
until that happens are there any slipcover geniuses out there in the the DC area? I'd love to find soemone that would be willing to teach me.

Thanks for mentioning me!!! I am still making slipcovers for folks in the Wilmington, NC area. I have been so busy, that I haven't been posting like I should!! Just posted a slipcovered headboard. Thanks for supporting all of us out here sewing away!!!!!

I enjoyed seeing this site. I've made many slipcovers for the upstate of South Carolina. I love them.
