Workroom & Equipment
This is a picture of our 3 drapery tables and (on the right) our sewing machines.
Elizabeth hard at work at one of our drapery tables. We have three 12 foot drapery tables. One table has a 96 inch extension for extra long drapery.
We use the Kirsch drapery “Super Sizemaster” to make sure your drapes come out just right.
This is our sewing center. Lots of machines.
Two walking foot machines for canvas upholstery and heavy duty drapery fabric. We have all the accessories and attachments to make all kinds of cords and more.
Consew sewing straight stitch machine, for silks and fine fabrics.
Singer tacker machine. Special for pinch-pleated drapes and many other styles.
Two Rimolde surger or overlock thread machines. This machine zigzags the edge of the fabric so that it does not fray away. Special for washing fabrics, no threads come off.
Two blind stitch machines 718 model, for doing bottom, side, and top hems (professionally made. This machine won’t show the stitch in the face of the material).
We custom built a padded table to connect to the sewing machines and streamline the sewing work. We are always looking for ways to be more efficient.
Tools of the trade –
We are turning part of our workroom space into a lovely little showroom for our customers.
This is what we have so far:
The SOS Reception Desk –
As soon as you walk in our door we have a comfortable chair waiting for you at our marble-top desk for receiving and entertaining clients (and yes, we have candy! 🙂 ).
Also we have some of the latest interior design magazines for you to flip through.
Hunter Douglas rollershades and blind display –
Also in the entrance way we have a display of Hunter Douglas shade samples. Feel free to play with the controls to test out opening and closing them.
Also – designers – we have started an arrangement where you can checkout a sample to show to a potential client.
Sample books display –
We have dealer arrangements with local to-the-trade-only fabric companies (like Norbar), importers on the west coast, and Greenhouse Design (which has an extensive online wholesale catalog).
Through these relationships we can offer you one of the largest selections of fabric in boca raton at below retail prices. (see our fabric page)
To give you a taste of what is available and possible we have setup a display area full of samples of fabric, trim, bamboo, and other window covering and upholstery accessories.
