Koffee Break: All you need to know about Roman Shades


I have been obsessed with window treatments lately. I cannot sew like a professional, so I know that I cannot do these window treatments like the professional workrooms can. And when you know the right people who can make your designs come true, I think its a win win combination.


There is just so much information to share when it comes to window treatments, I can easily talk for hours on this topic.  I decided to break it down into a couple of different episodes. So I invited Rosemarie Garner to share info about Roman shades.


Instead of doing 2 separate episodes in January, I decided to make 1 longer episode. So this episode is not 20 min like you would expect.

If I split this into 2 separate episodes, you would loose the continuity, so in order to serve you more, I’m doing a longer episodes.
