We offer free fabrication estimates as well as yardage requirements & design assistance. For more difficult projects we are available for consultations in the shop or on the jobsite by appointment. Our optional installation service boasts over 35 years experience.
We work closely with our designer clients to create an aesthetic vision and design plan. Our goal is to translate your envisioned designs into original statement pieces by utilizing our full-service production facility.
Drapery Enterprises, Inc. first opened its doors in 1948 as a wholesale workroom. It had four different owners of the same family until Lois and Bill Laidlaw purchased it 10 years ago. They are now in the process of turning over the reins to their daughter Wendi Strong. She has been in training for the past several years.
Bringing fresh new ideas and spirit to the business while maintaining the standards of superior workmanship, customer service and design assistance that our customers have come to count on. Wendi is current on all new trends in the window fashions industry.
With an extensive background in textiles, primarily from the carpet industry, and also from years of sewing, Wendi knows how fabrics handle. She has also attended numerous national window covering conferences with Lois. Currently a member of the WCAA (Window Coverings Association of America), she also served on the board of Northern California chapter.
As the new head of the company, she intends to use her experience to give our designers the competitive edge they need to stay ahead of the competition.
Lois is still available for consultations, estimates, on-site design consultations and measures – by appointment.
