One of my professional highlights of 2013 was when I was invited to spent an evening & the following day in the company of 50+ fellow professional curtain makers at the beautiful Redbourne Hall, home of Merrick & Day. We were treated to a fabulous day of great hospitality & inspirational guest speakers with demonstrations by the talented Rebecca Day.
We were awed by Bert Chapman MBE whose company holds the Royal Warrant. He spoke about the restoration of Windsor Castle following the fire & showed us a selection of fascinating sketches, technical drawings, bespoke fabrics & gorgeous passementerie. It was an honour to have this opportunity to meet Mr Chapman who has such fascinating & long experience at the pinnacle of our industry.
My thanks go to the MyDecozo team, Catherine Merrick & Rebecca Day as well as their welcoming Directors & staff at Merrick & Day, Bert Chapman MBE, Wendy Shorter for informing us of the opportunities through Association of Master Upholsterers & Soft Furnishers & the many others who made it such a success.
I can’t wait for the next MyDecozo meeting!
