I'm just glad I was smart enough to pay attention.
Mother was very particular with her work and would not let me touch it too often, after all she was being paid to produce and productivity had to be profitable. It was her main source of living and she just seemed to thrive in it.
I eventually found my main interest leaned toward making slipcovers, that was what I enjoyed the most. I knew there were not many around that make slipcovers and it seemed to be a dying art. So I decided to narrow my services down to just specializing in slipcovers and some accessories.
If you are in the market for slipcovers and are interested in finding out more about them, I have written another article in greater detail called 'Slipcovers 101'. It's intended to help you understand some of what goes behind making decisions about slipcovers, such as ‘How to find a contractor’, ‘What type of fabric to use’, ‘How much will it cost’ and ‘Do you want to make it yourself’.
I invite you to give it a read and if you should have any questions I did not cover, please let me know. I always enjoy talking with those that are interested.
