Some of the Designers I've talked to have said things like this: "Draperies scare me. I haven't done them very often, and I haven't always been happy when I have."

Who am I? and How do I know how to help you?
Hi! I'm Gretchen Tegtman and I grew up going with my Mom when she was installing Window Treatments. Just what you want to do as a teenager, right?! But it put me in a unique position to know the ins and outs of installing Window Treatments. When I was helping her, I got to see first hand what goes into an Installation. What to look out for, and what to do if something comes up. Most times, everything goes well, but sometimes there are issues. So I got to see how she problem-solved issues on the spot. What I didn’t realize at the time was how valuable that would be to me later.
Then when I started working with her, I learned everything there is to know about fabricating Window Treatments. That experience and knowledge has made me well versed in all aspects of Window Treatments: Design, Fabrication and Installation. Knowing what to look for in each of these areas helps set the stage for a successful Window Treatment experience for you and your Client.
