Happy Anniversary to Us!

It's true...time flies when you're having fun. Here at All Sewn Up, we've been having a blast for the past 5 years. The very process of providing custom window treatments for our clients is brimming with opportunities for fun. Meeting with a new customer is really an occassion to make a new acquaintance. Through the design proccess we inspire our clients with the unique treatments we propose for their homes. Next comes the fabrication stage. It is here that we carefully craft every treatment as if it was going to furnish our own homes. But I have to say the greatest moment of joy comes when the final product is installed in our customer's home. The gratitude they express along with the opportunity to see our all of our careful planning come to fruition provide us with the ultimate level of satisfaction.

Join us in a joyful celebration of our 5th anniversary. Between October 13 and November 14, 2008, wish us a Happy Anniversary and get a 10% discount off your custom window treatments and home accessories.

My Field Trip

I excused myself from work on Monday to take a field trip. I had a special delivery to make and I want to share it with you. This summer, my Stout Brother's Fabric sales rep asked me to create a window treatment to be displayed in their showroom. I was flattered by the request and saw it as an opportunity to present All Sewn Up to the designers who frequent the showroom seeking fabric and trim that will satisfy the needs of their customers. The valance I created for them, using a beautiful Stout linen fabric along with their trim, is called a Catherine.

This is a great treatment for heightening a small window (such as this one), but requires a lot of room above the window so as not to cover too much of the glass. To further showcase Stout's products, we mounted the treatment on posts and attached one of their fabulous medallions to the end of the post.

We were all very pleased with the outcome.

After the treatment was installed, I shopped for fabric for a few of my own customers. While Stout has created a very comfortable showroom in which to view fabrics, I couldn't resist exploring the warehouse where I was delighted to see row upon row of lovely fabrics lined up and waiting to be turned into masterpieces. We should all dream so big...
