Fourteen shades- and the CWC

I've been honing my "Efficient Shade Making" skills- practicing my efficiency chops ahead of the class by that same name that I'll be presenting at Susan Woodcock's Custom Workroom Conference, which begins in just over two weeks.
Everyone is getting mighty excited about the Conference!  It's going to be an amazing gathering of a couple hundred workroom professionals gathering in NC.  When I look at the list of classes I cannot believe how comprehensive are the educational offerings.  I'm excited about teaching, but equally excited about attending classes myself.

Anyhow, things are heating up around here, as we finish up projects before closing for a few days at the end of the month.
Here's what went out of the studio today:
Three of these- my favorite of the whole batch.  At first I felt woeful about the heavy-ish upholstery fabric, but it made up into beautiful AND well-behaved shades:
Three of these, another well-behaved fabric in a gorgeous shade of red which doesn't quite come through here:
Three of these, a nice contrast in the workroom with the brilliant red:
One of these, another incredibly well-behaved fabric, considering it's a fairly heavy woven geometric:
One of these, ok, I'll say it again, another well-behaved woven geometric:
And one of these, the only double-window sized shade- widths were joined, but it's lined with double-wide sateen so there are no seams in the lining showing through.  And the trim is lovely with the print:
Lastly there were two small hobbled shades that I forgot to photograph.
And that's all for today, folks!
