Textile Week

April 23-27, 2018

For the Love of Fabrics…

I love talking textiles and frankly it’s a much-needed conversation. Fabric selection is the most favorite part of a designer’s job and the most difficult. Textiles are a complex discipline with staggering choices. SO…I am excited to launch Textile Week 2018, a comprehensive instructional package neatly wrapped up for you. 
We’ll bring you a broad range of curated, textile focused learning opportunities from a variety of expert voices. All of them are online-live or on demand and some CEU accredited. We’ll cover topics like: 

Textile Tech Support 
Decorator’s Guide to Soft Surfaces 
Textile Crash Course for Design Pros 
Future Fabrics

Plus, we’ll throw in some freebies like:

What Product Performs? The Story of Performance Fabric

Textile Stories


Ending the month is a new series, ” Window Fashions Master Class” . Window treatments are a complex business from design details to specifying and selling. I have been creating exceptional window treatments for longer than she cares to mention. Now I’ll share my thoughts, tips, soft styling design secrets, insider tricks and advice to help you elevate your signature window fashion skill set. This is a master class in window coverings.  As a Window Fashion guru, I’ll open up a whole new world of ideas, inspiration and information so you can flourish as a soft furnishings designer. These classes focus on the more challenging aspects of designing window fashions giving you success strategies to perfect your designs. Use your lab notes to jumpstart your own creative exercises or enrich your design notebook with solutions, options and details for your clients that are real life tested.
