Home Decor Demos Launch this Week at Mary Jo's


We are happy to introduce, Susan Woodcock, owner of HomeDecGal.com, a how-to sewing and decorating resource. Susan will be presenting FREE mini-workshops in our store every second Saturday of the month.  Look for Susan in the home d├ęcor department starting at 10:00 am.

On Saturday, Oct. 12, Susan will display samples of the three most popular drapery pleat styles; French, Goblet and Euro pleats, and demonstrate how to sew and hand-tack each pleat to achieve a beautiful, finished drapery heading.


Take a peek inside any decorating magazine and you will see draperies used more often than any other window treatment.  Why?  Drapery panels look wonderful on almost any window and can be purely decorative or functional; offering light control, privacy and insulation. 

At Mary Jo’s you can select the perfect fabric, lining, trims and hardware to create your own drapery panels, and remember to join Susan on Saturday, Oct. 12, to learn how to add decorative pleats for a professional-looking finish.
