Angie Knowles Slipcover Professional and Owner of Quick Pleater

Angie Knowles started sewing at the early age of nine, the summer between 5th & 6th grade at a summer recreation program.  The next three summers found me back at the program, sewing again.  Since then I have logged in countless hours at the sewing machine, enjoying every minute of it.  Well, almost every minute; there were some occasions when I could have thrown the machine out the window. In 2000 I made my first slipcover and shortly after attended a four day professional slipcover class.  As soon as I returned home from the class I opened my custom slipcover business.  In 2004 I started teaching at the annual Slipcover Summit and rediscovered how much I enjoy teaching.  My love of teaching is what inspired me to start Sew It Yourself Slipcovers.   The purpose of Sew It Yourself Slipcovers is to help you achieve your goal of making professional looking slipcovers, even though we may be worlds apart. Enough of me, time to meet the other contributors to Sew It Yourself Slipcovers.
