I've never been a big slipcover fan in the past, but I'm starting to come around. These are FABULOUS; once again, you've inspired me. I especially love the pleated ruffle edgings and the one that ties in back with big, chocolate brown bows. I see more slipcovers in my future -- and my clients' homes! -- and I can't wait to see what your new book has in store. Bravissimo, baby!

Jackie,

I'm positive it will have a great impact to the design trade. Great books of reference and styles are always needed.
I'll be waiting patiently.
