DYI shows I agree do not truely go into the reality of what it is like to sew a slipcover. But do you realize this is our opportunity to educate the general public about slipcovers.
When I teach at the sewing shows around the country folks then realize if they really don't know how to sew trying to tackle sewing their own slipcover is not something they want to do. So that is where we pros come into the picture.
Educating the public is on going.
