HISTORY OF SLIPCOVERS
First slipcovers were made of chintz fabric that was discovered in India in the 1700s by a group of French decorators. Faster than you can say "insouciant" society's upper crusts were clamoring for chintz slipcovers to protect their expensive silk and brocade upholstery. By the 1950s mini-slipcovers had become all the rage in American homes as ingenious camouflage for upholstered furniture.
In the 1980s English designer Rachel Ashwell (of Shabby Chic fame) revolutionized home decorating with her practical and attractive slipcovers. Millions of people followed her lead and today slipcovers are important elements in home decorating, rivaling only carpeting in their ability to evoke passionate feelings. Everyone agrees-slipcovers are magical. With just a few yards of fabric a slipcover can camouflage outdated upholstery, mask unmentionable animal stains, and transform a 1970s Brady Bunch living room into a master piece in the twinkling of an eye.
Slipcovers are also ideal for people who fear the long-term commitment of upholstery. Slipcovers are easily installed without glue or nails and are not shrouded in mystery like plumbing or wallpapering. Best of all slipcovers can be made from hundreds of fabric choices.
BENEFITS OF SLIPCOVERS . . .
WHO AM II have been sewing for 30 years. In 1996, I began sewing professionally and have limited my business to slip-covering and home decor sewing. (curtains, drapes, cushions, pillows). I do slipcovers which look like upholstery (European Style) as well as loose fitting covers sometimes seen in magazines.
