As a young girl I loved to sew, knit and crochet.

As a young women I loved my home. Guess you could call me a nester…still to this day! In time I realized the house needed window treatments and that was a project I could do!

I fell in love with the whole process of making window treatments.

Fabrics: beautiful colors & textures
Design: design stitching & designing patterns.

Importance of proportion! The value of properly installed drapes and valances. As a woman of a certain age! I now realize I have continued the art of sewing like my great Grandmother, Grandmothers, Aunts & Cousins.
