Custom-fitted slipcovers, window treatments and more!

About Me

My background

 After twenty-five years in production management and training & development, I was burned out and didn’t know it.  In the late 90’s when I traveled to visit my sister, Karen, and my mother, Faye, I just wanted to learn more about how they earned a living and gain the basic skill of sewing.  I not only took to the skill, I loved it. 

Here are Karen and Faye, my sister and mother, best friends, and  my mentors.

How I got started

When I returned home after my two-week “intensive”, a friend asked me to sew slipcovers for two chairs in her office.  The place from where she had purchased the fabric began to refer people to me.  Within a year, I was able to leave my position at Seattle University and support myself.  All of my past training (enrollment, time management, team-building, production management, creative thinking) have served me well.  Through sewing, I have gained real freedom!

How I work

If you can imagine it, I can create it.  I am happy to make suggestions and give my opinion!  Typically, my clients choose and provide their own fabric and design.  I can help with suggestion and yardage needed. Browse through my photos to see the beauty in the details.  

About my business

Part of the cottage industry

Part of my home has been converted into a workshop with a large work table, two industrial sewing machines and a blind-stitcher.  I operate within an 9 to 5 framework and schedule visits on an appointment basis.

What I offer

Sewing includes custom-fitted slipcovers, window treatments, bedding and light upholstery. Fabrication includes cornices, bed crowns, padded headboards, walls and ceilings.

How it works

I schedule appointments to measure for window treatments and for cutting and pinning custom-fitted slipcovers at your location.  


Contact Me

Since my workshop is in my home, appointments are on a scheduled basis. Please call with any questions!
