Professional workrooms strive to provide safe and compliant corded window coverings.  If you are a sole-proprietor, and own a small workroom business, becoming knowledgeable of new products allows you to purchase specifically for your skill level, fabrication style and client expectations.

Roman shades are one of the most popular styles today, but many workroom owners are confused about the different products available, and how they compare.  A cord-free Roman shade is always best practice, but most cord-free options require the shade to be within easy reach which isn’t always possible, or requires a motorized system which is often out of the budget.

In this live webinar presentation you will learn the basics of Roman shade construction using supplies created specifically to meet recent cord safety standards including cord shroud, ladder tape and ring-locks.  You will see how each product is attached to the shade, and have a better understanding how the products control cords, eliminating a hazardous loop.  Options for lift systems, cords and chains will be also be addressed.

Included in this presentation will be shade construction techniques for adding ribs or dowels to the body of the shade for structure and stability, and techniques to lessen pin-holes of light when using blackout lining.

This is an interactive class where you will be able to comment and ask questions.  A recording of this webinar will be available for you to view after the event, making this class a valuable reference for future projects.
