5 Day Program

This comprehensive course provides the foundation for custom window treatment fabrication.

Students learn how to write and read window treatment work-orders, calculate yardage with any size and/or type of repeat and employ trade secrets to improve workroom efficiency. Students develop their sewing skills and become comfortable with the use of the industrial straight-stitch machine, blind hemmer, and serger machines. A detailed classroom handbook and all materials and supplies are provided.
