Default Anyone know a seamstress for slipcovers?

I have three pieces of furniture for which I want to have good quality custom slipcovers made. Does anyone know of someone I could contact for this? Thanks

When we first were thinking of moving here, I had the same question and I did find such a person in LadyLake but the problem is you can replace the furniture with decent quality for the price of the piece goods and the work. It isn't cheap. I am sure she does good work and I cannot think of her name.

So... I abandoned the idea.

I used to make slipcovers, very professional looking too. Bu I can't get down on the floor any more and you really need to.

We just contacted someone to do upholstery on a recliner we had. Cost was about $650, the cost of a new chair. Hated to see our "old friend" go, but just not worth the cost to cover something old.

Did you contact Gary Brodeur ? He does a beautiful job at reupolstering ! Better than new, always . Not sure if he does slip covers. Phone # 750-2698 think you will like him.
