Sew It Your Self Slipcovers (SIYS) is your online resource for everything related to slipcover education. You will find information on everything from sewing your own slipcovers to starting and running your own custom slipcover business.
SIYS came about because of my passion for slipcovers and my passion for teaching. SIYS allows me to combine both these passions into one venture. Since 2004, I’ve taught other slipcover professionals at the annual Slipcover Summit, and I teach local classes in studio, but I want to do more.

I started sewing at the early age of nine, the summer between 5th & 6th grade. Since then I have logged in countless hours at the sewing machine, enjoying every minute of it. Well, almost every minute.
After attending a four day professional slipcover class in 2000; I opened my slipcover business. Then in 2004 I started teaching at the annual Slipcover Summit and rediscovered how much I enjoy teaching.
My love of teaching is what inspired SIYS. SIYS is here to help you achieve your goal of making professional looking slipcovers. This is my virtual classroom, so that I can reach students no matter where you live.
