Sheri Corey Profile
Sheri Corey, owner and designer of both Sew Sheri Designs and Dorm Suite Dorm, just loves to sew. She loves to sew so much that she named her dog Buttons! She matter-of-factly states that sewing “is my passion. I love the creativity.” Starting at an early age, Sheri learned how to use her skills and talents to support her goals, dreams and lifestyle. She began by sewing doll clothes in order to make money as a child. Her sewing continued into nursing school in order to “subsidize what [money her] parents gave [her].”
These ventures morphed into Sew Sheri Designs, Sheri’s first home décor sewing business, sixteen years ago with the hopes of staying at home with her two boys, Doug and Cannon. Sew Sheri Designs became full-time for Sheri fourteen years ago and has been growing ever since. Sew Sheri Designs specializes in window treatments such as curtains, draperies and shades. Slipcovers and pillows are other common items Sew Sheri Designs produces for its customers.
In 2008, Sheri decided she wanted to “design the best dorm room bedding.” She explains that she could not locate any sites online that could offer what she could, so she started Dorm Suite Dorm. Though Sheri thoroughly enjoys Sew Sheri Designs, she admits that she ‘love[s] DSD most for [its freedom] because I get to design even more and meet some of the greatest girls out there. I also want to help [the girls] understand to dream and reach for those dreams!” Sheri foresees new products offered on her site, www.dormsuitedorm.com, in the coming year and altering the fabric options. Dorm Suite Dorm offers custom bedding and décor to spice up the typical old, dirty and grungy dorm room.
Sheri has a Bachelors of Science in Nursing from Troy University in Montgomery, AL. She, her husband, John, and two boys, live in one of Birmingham’s suburbs of Mountain Brook, AL. Sheri loves going to the lake and the beach with her boys. In the hopes of contributing to young girls’ dreams, Sheri actively participates and aids Linley Heflin, a Birmingham women’s scholarship fund. Sheri strives to inspire and motivate young girls to DREAM BIG through her strong Christian faith.
