Putting this out there again. I'm speaking with Ralph today so if you have not "weighed in" on this topic, please let me know of your thoughts and interest.

Thank you!
I posed a question about wider drapery linings on another thread a couple weeks ago. After receiving immediate response of interest, I took my question a step further.

I've been in touch with Ralph at Angels about this. Ralph liked my idea and would be willing to make this investment as long as he knows there is enough interest/potential buyers. As you can imagine this will require a substantial upfront investment on his part. Ralph has worked with his mills and has two potential options: Premiere Sateen which would end up at 4.69/yard or Sterling at a cost of 3.69/yard. The choice right now can only be one as it will require a 10,000 yard commitment. The goods will be folded just as the double wide is or it would be cost prohibitive for shipping. That being said, we started to consider if the goods should be 75" or 80". (80 will be a few pennies more per yard)

So, four questions:
1) Premiere (100% cotton),or Sterling (Poly/Cotton) ?
2) 75" or 80"
3) Will you buy it?
4) Will you spread the word and ask other workrooms/colleagues to weigh in on this post too so I can give Ralph as much feedback as possible?

Thank you!

While there is so much being posted from Highpoint that I am loving; the timing could not be more contrary. Haunting. We know. We are aware but seeing these images has much more impact of the reality. 16 kids bedrooms from across the globe!

The amount of #fabric you plan for each pleat makes a difference. 6" is very often a standard but may not be the look you want. The weight of the fabric, the type and method of lining will also contribute. I'm sharing one of my samples yo give you an idea. #sizematters #pleateddrapes #draperies #headerstyles #pleatfullness #fullnessfactors

I teach social media. I’m an advocate. In some senses, I guess I could be considered a "promoter". That does not mean that I think social media and technology should be life support, constantly connected and always on. Conversely, my recommendation: people need to shut down much, much more often than they currently are!

What do I recommend? Turn your data off from social channels when your on a job, driving or with a client. No dings, bells, whistles or notifications. Even when not responding to them, just hearing them is a detractor and pulls a little piece of the brain, focus, concentration away from what one may be doing at the moment. When back to the office or back home, turn the data back on. This allows one to be present for the meetings, interactions and events that are happening right in front of them in real life. 

Being present: the way life used to be. It can be achieved with discipline and boundaries.

OK, Brooklyn friends, I feel so uninformed. How is it I've never heard of "Crack Pie?" Is this really that good, that we should consider having one shipped to us?

I am so not surprised by this. I recently did a job for corporate client and when interviewing the team, Google is the company that came predominantly up as their "dream work environment"... and they were not "kids".. http://blogs.wsj.com/atwork/2014/03/25/why-everyone-wants-to-work-for-google/?mod=WSJBlog
