Darlene and I recently attended a Drapery products class in Williamsburg, VA. It was a full day where we discussed the various aspects of window coverings. We 1st discusssed the qualities of custom draperies. These include: lining (all drapery fabrics except sheers get lining); fullness (2 and a half to 1 fullness is our standard, sheers get 3 to 1); double fold edge hem, and more. We were showed the differnt types of pleat types for draperies, as well as the types of rods needed for several applications. This took up most of the morning. After lunch we covered soft window treatments; roman shades and balloon shades, as well as touching upon top treatments. Finally the spring collection of fabrics were shown to us.
This seminar increased our knowledge of our products and gave us some installation tips. It makes us better (and more confident) at our profession. Our customers in Haddonfield, Voorhees, Marlton, Maple Shade, Cherry Hill and Mt. Laurel can be assured that our service will be spectacular!
