IWCE & The Construction Zone: Overwhelming Success!

The Construction Zone at IWCE
was the "Hot Spot"

The Construction Zone hosted ongoing demonstrations for the three days of the show. Attendees were treated to programs of inspiration, technology, techniques and marketing.

Pam Damour, self-proclaimed "Rah-Rah Girl" kept the excitment going through out the show, inlcuding hosting the "Rowenta Extreme Iron Off Race"

This race was a combination of the speed and precison pressing of drapery hems and headers. the winning contestents were awarded a professional dx8900 iron, and then went on to race for the grand prize: Rowenta's top of the line steam generator.

Here, Nancy receives her iron.

Monica & Judy manage the Decorating Diva booth, with the help of Susan, Karen & Cindy.

But working a show like this is exhausting.

Atlanta Drapery School

In Atlanta, on May 7-12, students were subject five Days in intense window treatment instruction, where they learned how to create all types of custom window treatments. This was made possible, in part, due to the generosity of Discover Sewing of Atlanta who allowed us to us their beautiful sewing classroom for the event.
If you're looking for a decorator in Atlanta, let me know. I've just trained some good ones.

Here are a couple of their creations!

I can't wait to go back in August, when I'll be teaching my Professional Drapery School, my workroom technique class and "Running with Scissors"!! For more info, call Somerset Sewing at (814) 445-7770
