THERESE AND FABRICATIONS STUDIO

Fabrications Studio began in 2006, originally to create custom home furnishings, evolving into slipcovers and jewelry design.

Therese grew up in Michigan where she learned to sew with her Grandmother by making Barbie doll dresses on a treadle sewing machine (the very one pictured below). This inspired her to earn a B.S. in Clothing & Textiles from Michigan State University.

In the course of her diverse professional career she has developed an eye for fine detail (through work in tailoring and bridal fashions) as well as an expansive knowledge of construction and fabrication techniques (working in drapery workrooms).

Therese is a member of  Slipcover NetworkDrapery Design ProfessionalWAOA, and WCAA.

Therese lives in Barrington, Illinois with her family.
