Drapery 101

June 21, 2023 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am

Wednesday, June 21st
9:30 – 10:30 am

A quick yet in-depth look at how to design and sell window coverings. We hear you, and see you! You have got the certificate, and the business name, and you even have a few design & decor projects under your belt but you need more info on how to get started designing and selling custom window coverings.

I have spent the better part of my 20 years in the industry focusing on systems and procedures to help expedite the process and ease the pain points of custom design. So I get you. I know how it feels to be sitting there thinking “What happens next?” or “Why didn’t that go so well?”

I am working on a paid course but until then I am giving tips away for free in an effort to build the next generation of pros with the platform to keep this unique part of the industry alive and accessible. And no, I don’t think you have to know how to sew in order to design and sell, but it sure helps to have a good workroom that does on your team.

What you need to know about designing & selling drapes, shades valances & bedding in 2023:

  • Check measure template
  • What tools to bring on that first appointment
  • What questions to ask to get the best results for your client
  • What to measure and how
  • How to fill out a work order
  • Memo’s vs book samples how and when to use them
  • Different pricing models
  • and probably much more, if you know me at all I like to talk and one good question leads to another.

I am even going to give away some of my trade-selling tips. This is an excellent chance to get saturated information about how to start selling & designing custom window coverings.

This workshop is designed for new-to-industry trade professionals that identify as decorators. My goal is to arm the industry with transparent practices, and confidence. I look to create a community of like-minded professionals that have honesty, good design & business practices, and clients’ best interests in mind.

We are business to business sales model, but we are always thinking about the end consumer first. If you are looking for a collaborative approach that has your back this might be a great place to start a new revenue stream for your decorating business. 

This workshop is totally free, just RSVP – call the office at 7804784919 or email and say I am in for the Drapery 101 Workshop!
