Northfield Gals National Workroom Tour

We did it again! Several of us spent a few days in East Jordan, Michigan visiting with Nancy Letts and Pine House Drapery. We had such a great time. We took the ferry over to Mackinaw Island and rented bikes. We rode completely around the island (8 mi), shopped for taffy, ate ice cream, drank Guiness at an Irish Pub, and then headed back. We spent some time in Nancy's workroom.........making bags out of scrap fabrics. Helser Bros sent along t-shirts for all of us to wear and wear them we did!

Window Seat Cushion

My first window seat cushion EVER! 114" long x 21" wide x 3" thick. Thanks to my good drapery friend, Nancy Letts, I tackled this and was very pleased with the result. It fit perfectly! I'm definitely adding this item to fabricate. When I delivered it to the customer she instantly ordered breakfast nook chair cushions with skirts out of the leftover fabric.

Helser Bros Artigiani Iron Rod

I needed a custom rod made for a 5 sided bay window. Anita Boetsma at Helser Bros helped me a lot with this project. The end result is just lovely. The customer loved it and thought the pricing was very good on the hardware. Once again, "you rock Helser Bros"......:)
