Welcome to threadneedle studio
Hi, I'm Angie Knowles, owner, slipcover designer and slipcover fabricator of threadneedle studio. I'm so glad to have a chance to introduce myself.
I first started sewing at 9 years old, during summer recreation program for inner city kids. I continued with that program until we moved out of that area, but by then, sewing was in my blood. Mom bought me my very first sewing machine a few years later and I was happy sewing my way through high school, college and the military. My very first job at age 16 was a fabric store, and I couldn't wait to get out of school and get to work. Talk about a dream job!
Fast forward to 1999, we'd retired from the Air Force and purchased our first home. Money was tight, with no budget for new furniture. At that time I was once again working at a fabric store part time. And with access to all kinds of beautiful fabrics, I decided to try my hand at making a slipcover. Lo and behold! It came out beautiful.
At that moment, the seed for my slipcover business was planted. I found a professional slipcover training program and attended a 4 day class in early 2000, and come home and officially launched my business. Over the years, my little slipcover business grew to include window treatments, upholstery and other home décor trades and 1 employee. But slipcovers remained my first love, so I have slowly eliminated those other trades to focus solely on slipcovers.
Now it is just me and my slew of sewing machines, happily stitching up slipcovers. I love working one on one with my clients, helping and guiding you to making choices that will result in the slipcover that you dreamed of.
For more information on how I like to work, please check out my How I Work page. If you like the sound of that and think we can work together to create your beautiful slipcover, contact me via this site, or call me at 727-328-1531.
