The Slipcover Maker’s Business Guidebook
Do you love designing and sewing? Put your talent to work and get paid for it!
That’s what I did. And now I make a living on my own terms from work I love.
I started my slipcover business at age 55 when life threw me a big curve ball and forced me to start over from the ground up. Read my story here.
I’ve grown my business organically and without any outside financial support. I successfully reinvented myself as The Slipcover Maker and my business has flourished more than I ever thought possible.
I want that kind of success for you, too!
Discover How To Launch Your Own Slipcover Business
Do you need a restart? Are you looking for a way to earn a good living with your sewing skills and passion for home decor, but you’re not sure where to begin?
I wrote The Slipcover Maker’s Business Guidebook to provide detailed guidance to individuals who are considering starting a custom slipcover business. I want to save you time and money by passing on all of the knowledge I’ve gained since I began in 2012.
Why should you have to learn the hard way? Learn from my mistakes—and from my success. I will teach you step-by-step.
The Demand is There
In this practical guidebook, I’ll show you the four different business models you can choose from, each having their own unique group of clients.
Professional slipcover services are in steady demand. There are plenty of consumers who are willing to pay a premium price for expertly-made slipcovers to keep their favorite furniture pieces in service and looking fresh.
Shorten Your Learning Curve
The Slipcover Maker’s Business Guidebook doesn’t teach you the fabrication skills needed to produce a custom slipcover. Instead, the ebook extensively covers everything you need to know to successfully set up your slipcover business, including how to:
- Choose a business model among four options
- Do the legal legwork to open your business
- Select the right bookkeeping system
- Plan your workroom
- Source fabrics and trims, with tips on buying from fabric wholesalers
- Price your work accurately and for profit
- Find your ideal customers with low to no-cost marketing methods
- Cost out a job and write an estimate
- Schedule and manage pin fittings
- Invoice and collect payments like a pro
- Put business systems in place for efficiency
- Grow your business
- Plus, a thorough resource directory to save you tons of searching
Like a Coach, but a Lot Cheaper
I’ve done business consulting on an hourly rate for folks who were launching a custom slipcover business. The Slipcover Maker’s Business Guidebook is like having me coach you, for a fraction of the cost of a consulting fee.
I don’t hold anything back: this is an exhaustive, detailed guide to help you avoid all of the pitfalls I’ve faced.
At only $54, this ebook will save you valuable hours of wasted time and hundreds of dollars in misspent money. It will allow you to succeed faster than I did, launching you down the runway to success.
The Slipcover Maker’s Business Guidebook will help you make the right decision about taking the plunge into this business. If you decide not to pursue this business venture after reading the ebook, you’ll lose much less of an investment than if you launched a business and then found out it wasn’t for you.
Take Control of Your Future
My slipcover business has put me in charge of my life. When I first started out, it allowed me the flexibility to grow at my own pace while I worked a part-time job and help take care of my Dad when he was ill.
Best of all running my own business has given me financial stability and a fulfilling creative profession.
