Grommet draperies are a popular style because of the simplicity and clean lines but often the flatness of this style lacks interest. In this class, you will see how to combine inverted and box pleats with grommets to create an updated look with more texture, fullness and drape.

You will learn how to draft the pleat and grommet spacing, work with pattern motifs and combine fabrics for a customized design. After this class you will be inspired to make pleated grommet draperies for your own home, and to share this new design idea with your clients!

    Love the print with purple inset pleats and the welt cording on the header!
    Very different and unique.

    Hey Susan, I love this treatment along with the others grommet panels. You are so creative and I love the twist you have put on the plain flat grommet panel. I missed the webinars but I have intentions of purchasing these. I appreciate that you are so attentive to every detail and don’t assume your viewer knows anything.

    Susan, when you gave a seminar at the N. VA chapter of WCAA, some years ago, you showed us a grommetted panel with wrapped tuxedo pleats, instead of French pleats, between the grommets. I am looking for my photo of that panel, but cannot find it. Do you have it posted anywhere? I did not find it on your pinterest page.

    Hello Linda,
    It’s nice to hear from you! I remember showing a French pleat/grommet panel back then, but not a tuxedo pleat. hmmmm…. I’ll look back in my photos to see if I can find anything.

    Best Wishes,
