"Sewing has always been my hobby. I remember sewing my first apron under my mother’s watchful eye at age three"
Sewing clothes for fellow students helped Antoinette pay her way through university. She began sewing home furnishings as soon as she moved into her first apartment.
Blinds, Drapes & Bedding began in 2001, it is an exclusive Window Treatment consulting service and design/production studio supplying primarily, but not exclusively, to the trade. Each and every item is sewn and constructed by Antoinette personally or under her supervision. With a reputation for doing precise and neat work paying special attention to detail, she takes pride in continually upgrading her knowledge of new developments in the Window Treatment industry and doing industry directed Webinars throughout the year. She is a WFCP Specialist (Window Fashion Certified Professionals).
"On my travels I have always explored local textiles. I am passionate about textiles and creating home furnishings that are both beautiful and functional. It is immensely satisfying for me to see finished pieces installed and appreciated by clients"
