DRAPERY YARDAGE FINDER AVAILABLE
WCAA announces the addition of The Drapery Yardage Finder to the list of educational and sales aids available to the membership.
It is an easy-to-use, reliable guide to drapery and pleated valance yardage. It works with both plain and pattern-repeat fabrics, estimates for 45-, 48/50- and 54-inch fabrics with three choices of fullness for each size. It also makes all seam, hem and heading allowances, so no calculations are necessary.
Call WCAA at (888) 298-WCAA(9222) for ordering information.
As the most comprehensive, single educational program in the industry, the Certified Window Treatment Consultant Program requires a minimum of six weeks self-study in preparation for the examination, so don't miss out by being too late. When you register for the program, you are immediately sent the study materials-so don't wait until the last minute.
Listed below are the upcoming testing locations and dates. Contact Mark Nortman at the WCAA office ( 298-9222) to register or for more information.
