Happy “Thread The Needle Day”. Who knew there was such a thing, right?
Although the statement could have several meanings, I’ve decided to focus on the more literal meaning. Today can be all about sewing or learning to sew. I occasionally sew, and maybe this will be the push I need to finish some of the sewing projects I have started. What about you? Have you ever wanted to learn to sew?
Before investing in a good machine, it might be a good idea to take a few sewing classes at your local craft store. This will give you a good idea of the time and patience you’ll need to take up sewing as a hobby.
Keep an open mind. Know that learning anything new, takes time to master the task and get good at it. When I was learning to sew, I can remember having to take my seam ripper to many projects because I sewed together the wrong pieces, or sewed on the wrong side, etc. Practice, practice, practice. You can inexpensively practice your sewing skills on thrift store sheets and bargain thread. Start with simple projects so that you can fine tune your skills. And if you have an experienced friend that you can go to for questions, that can be tremendously helpful.
Make things you like. If you have a genuine interest in what you’re making, you’re more likely to stick with it. When I started sewing, I had a cousin that was a toddler. That poor kid had the cutest, silliest, outfits made for him. His mother was kind enough to actually have him wear them (or at least long enough to take pictures and send them to me). Those photos will be great for embarrassing him later in life.
Search the internet. Pinterest and You Tube have great ideas and how to tutorials. I always find visuals much more helpful than written instructions.

How should I care for my drapes? This is a question I get asked quite frequently.
The best answer I can give is, “Let a professional take care of it”. With each drapery order from DrapeStyle, you will receive instructions on how to care for your drapes. You shouldn’t try to clean them yourself. You do not want to launder, wash or dry clean your drapes. Typical household cleaners can permanently damage the fabric. You should have your drapes professionally cleaned by a company that has experience with draperies. Not every dry cleaner knows how to properly clean drapes, so do a little research and locate a drapery cleaner so that you can protect your beautiful investment.
Vacuuming and dusting your draperies can help. Regular cleaning reduces the build up of allergens like dust mites, animal hair and dander, and may offer some relief to those with allergies or asthma. If drapes are touched often, natural oils in the skin can leave residue that builds up and attracts further dust. Without proper and regular cleaning, dusty and grimy window treatments begin to look dull and discolored, detracting from the beauty of the window or door that they cover. Regularly cleaning your window treatments prolongs the life of fabrics and keeps colors from becoming dingy.
Simply put; call a professional. You don’t ever want to launder or scrub your drapes or roman shades. The best way to care for your window treatments is to call a professional drapery cleaner who will take your window treatments down, remove the metal drapery hooks, have them dry-cleaned, reinstall the metal drapery hooks, and then return and re-hang for you.
Purchasing your drapes and roman shades from DrapeStyle is an investment. And one of the best ways to maintain the look and feel of your window treatments is regular cleaning. If you have any questions about how to maintain your window treatments, please contact us, and we would be happy to help you.
DrapeStyle wishes you and your family a happy 4th of July. In honor of our nations independence, here is a little information about our country’s flag:
The national flag of the United States of America consists of thirteen equal horizontal stripes of red (top and bottom) alternating with white, with a blue rectangle in the canton (referred to specifically as the “union”), bearing fifty small, white, five-pointed starts arranged in nine offset horizontal rows of six stars (top and bottom) alternating with rows of five stars. The 50 stars on the flag represent the 50 state of the United states of America, and the thirteen stripes represent the thirteen British colonies that declared independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain and became the first states in the United States.
The current design of the U.S. flag is its 27th. The design of the flag has been modified officially 26 times since 1777. The 48-star flag was in effect for 47 years until the 49-star version became official on July 4, 1959. The 50-star flag was ordered by former president Eisenhower on August 21, 1959 and was adopted in July 1960. It is the longest-used version of the U.S. flag and has been in use for over 55 years.
Francis Hopkinson of New Jersey, a naval flag designer, and a signer of the Declaration of Independence, designed the 1777 flagwhile he was the Chairman of the Continental Navy Board’s Middle Department.
The origin of the stars and stripes design has been muddled by a story disseminated by the descendants of Betsy Ross. The apocryphal story credits Betsy Ross for sewing the first flag from a pencil sketch handed to her by George Washington. No evidence for this exists either in the diaries of George Washington nor in the records of the Continental Congress. Indeed, nearly a century passed before Ross’ grandson, William Canby, first publicly suggested the story in 1870.By her family’s own admission, Ross ran an upholstery business, and she had never made a flag as of the supposed visit in June 1776. Furthermore, her grandson admitted that his own search through the Journals of Congress and other official records failed to find corroboration of his grandmother’s story.
The family of Rebecca Young claimed that she sewed the first flag.Young’s daughter was Mary Pickersgill, who made the Star Spangled Banner Flag. According to rumor, the Washington family coat of arms, shown in a 15th-century window of Selby Abbey, was the origin of the stars and stripes.
The flag is customarily flown year-round at most public buildings, and it is not unusual to find private houses flying full-size flags. Some private use is year-round, but becomes widespread on civic holidays like Memorial Day, Veterans Day, Presidents’ Day, Flag Day, and on Independence Day. On Memorial Day it is common to place small flags by war memorials and next to the graves of U.S. war veterans. Also on Memorial Day it is common to fly the flag at half staff, until noon, in remembrance of those who lost their lives fighting in U.S. wars.
So today, fly your flag proudly in honor of America’s Independence. DrapeStyle will be closed on Monday, July 4th. We will be back on the 5th to help you with your window treatment needs. In the meantime, you may contact us and leave a message, and we contact you when we return.

Hover. Break. Puddle. You probably know these words but did you know they also pertain to drapes and curtains?
Determining the length of your drapes takes a little thought. First, ask yourself a few questions:
What is the style of the room you are having drapes made for? Is it formal or casual?
Does this room get a lot of traffic? You do have kids and pets constantly running through the room? Will there be traffic going in and out of the door the drapes will be hanging from?
What kind of flooring is in this room? Carpet? Tile? Wood? What length will look best with your type of flooring?
Not only are drapes like “Jewelry”, creating the finishing touch to your room, but they can provide privacy, help with heating and cooling cost, and make your room and windows appear larger. So it is important that we make your custom drapes the correct size.
These are examples of drapes that are too short:
What a difference drapes make!
This is the same sized window; doesn’t the window on the left look so much bigger?
Hang ’em HIGH and WIDE!
This is a trick that designers use to make the space appear larger than it is. Your room will look taller if your drapes hang 2″ – 4″ from the ceiling. Measure 2″ – 4″ below the ceiling or moulding, to the floor for your finished length. If your space doesn’t allow you to hang your drapes this high, you can hang the drapery rod 4″ above the window moulding. Measure from this point to the floor and this will be your finish length.
Next, let’s define a few terms:
Hover or Floor Length – Drapes that meet the floor:
This is the most popular option for customers to select. Floor length drapes lend a more casual look, and are a more practical option if the drapes will be opened and closed often. If you are using a drapery rod with rings, measure from the bottom of the drapery rings to the floor to get your finished length.
Trouser Break – Drapes break like a pair of trousers – one inch of fabric on the floor:
Trouser break drapes offer a tailored, but more casual look with that designer touch. Take the measurement from the bottom of the drapery rings to the floor and add one inch. All fabrics look great with this look.
Minimal Puddle – Drapes “puddle” or gather slightly on the floor:
Beautifully tailored looking drapes with a minimal puddle. This look adds softness to a room for a more cozy feel. Take the measurement from the bottom of the drapery rings to the floor and add 1-3″ to create this look.
Moderate Puddle – Drapes with a more substantial amount of fabric gathered on the floor:
Take the measurement from the bottom of the drapery rings to the floor and add 3-6″ for a moderate puddle. This style is more appropriate for rooms with less traffic, where you won’t be cleaning the floors often. This lends towards a more formal look, and drapes that puddle can really help with heating and cooling loss!
Opulent Puddle – A large amount of fabric gathered on the floor:
A more formal, luxurious feel. Measure from the bottom of the drapery rings to the floor, and add 6-8″ for an opulent puddle. This style is usually used in formal settings, perfect for drapes that won’t be opened and closed often. For a romantic look, silk fabrics look beautiful when puddled on the floor.
If you are designing outdoor drapes, you may want your drapes a couple of inches off the ground. Keep in mind that on your patio, water may puddle and dirt and leaves may collect, so by shortening your drapes by two inches, you will prevent the bottom of the drapes from getting dirty:

How should you decide on a color for your room? Ask yourself these questions:
~What is the main purpose of this room? Entertaining, family time, sleeping?
~What colors DON’T you like. Yes, you read that correctly. By eliminating the colors you don’t like, you will narrow down the color choices.
~Do you have an inspiration piece? Is there a rug or a piece of art that you will be using in this room? You can select colors from these pieces for your room color.
Color has the power to convey and communicate meanings and messages without words.
Why do we find one place appealing and are uneasy in another? Why are we attracted to one product over another? Color—whether architectural or in products—accounts for 60 percent of our response to an object or a place.
The “buzz” about color is usually called “color psychology.” But the effects of color are subtle and significant; physical and psychological. Color use is not something that results in a definitive equation between “color and our moods,” as is a currently popular expression. Wherever we go we respond to color, but the importance of color is often underestimated. Color use is important to us personally in our homes and in the places where we work.
Black is the color of authority and power. It is popular in fashion because it makes people appear thinner. It is also stylish and timeless. Black also implies submission. Priests wear black to signify submission to God. Some fashion experts say a woman wearing black implies submission to men. Black outfits can also be overpowering, or make the wearer seem aloof or evil. Villains often wear black. Black is the color of the hidden, the secretive and the unknown, creating an air of mystery.
White symbolizes innocence, wholeness, completion and purity. White is a neutral, it goes with everything. Brides wear white to symbolize purity. Doctors and nurses wear it to symbolize sterility.
Red is the most emotionally intense color. Red stimulates a faster heartbeat and breathing. It is also the color of love. Red clothing gets noticed and makes the wearer appear heavier. Since it is an extreme color, red clothing might not help people in negotiations or confrontations. Red cars are popular targets for thieves. In decorating, red is usually used as an accent. Red is the color of energy, passion, action, ambition and determination.
Pink, the most romantic color, is more tranquilizing. The color psychology of pink is unconditional love and nurturing. Pink can also be immature, silly and girlish. Sports teams sometimes paint the locker rooms used by opposing teams bright pink so their opponents will lose energy.
Orange is the color of social communication and optimism. Orange is associated with meanings of joy, warmth, heat, sunshine, enthusiasm, creativity, success, encouragement, change, determination, health, stimulation, happiness, fun, enjoyment, balance, sexuality, freedom, expression, and fascination. As a citrus color, orange is associated with healthy food and stimulates appetite.
Cheerful sunny yellow is an attention-getter. While it is considered an optimistic color, people lose their tempers more often in yellow rooms, and babies will cry more. It is the most difficult color for the eye to take in, so it can be overpowering if overused. Yellow enhances concentration, hence its use for legal pads. It also speeds metabolism. With the meaning of colors, in color psychology, yellow is the color of the mind and the intellect. It is optimistic and cheerful. However it can also suggest impatience, criticism and cowardice.
Green is currently the most popular decorating color, green symbolizes nature. It is the easiest color on the eye and can improve vision. Green is a calming, refreshing color. People waiting to appear on TV sit in “green rooms” to relax. Hospitals often use green because it relaxes patients. Brides in the Middle Ages wore green to symbolize fertility. Dark green is masculine, conservative, and implies wealth. Green is the color of balance and growth.
Blue is the color of the sky and the ocean and is one of the most popular colors. It causes the opposite reaction to red. Peaceful, tranquil blue causes the body to produce calming chemicals, so it is often used in bedrooms. Blue can also be cold and depressing. Fashion consultants recommend wearing blue to job interviews because it symbolizes loyalty. People are more productive in blue rooms. Studies show weightlifters are able to handle heavier weights in blue gyms. Blue is the color of trust and peace. It can suggest loyalty and integrity as well as conservatism and frigidity. While blue is one of the most popular colors it is one of the least appetizing; blue food is rare in nature.
The color of royalty, purple connotes luxury, wealth, and sophistication. It is also feminine and romantic. However, because it is rare in nature, purple can appear artificial.Purple is the color of the imagination. It can be creative and individual or immature and impractical.
Brown is solid and reliable. It is the color of earth and is abundant in nature. Light brown implies genuineness while dark brown is similar to wood or leather. Brown can also be sad and wistful. Men are more apt to say brown is one of their favorite colors. The color brown is a friendly yet serious, down-to-earth color that relates to security, protection, comfort and material wealth.
Gold is the color of success, achievement and triumph. Associated with abundance and prosperity, luxury and quality, prestige ans sophistication, value and elegance, the color psychology of gold implies affluence, material wealth and extravagance.
Silver has a feminine energy, it is related to the moon and the ebb and flow of the tides. It is fluid, emotional, sensitive and mysterious. Silver is associated with meanings of industrial, sleek, high-tech, and modern, as well as ornate, glamorous, graceful, sophisticated, and elegant. Silver is a precious metal and often symbolizes riches and wealth.

It’s first thing in the morning, you pour yourself a cup of coffee, you turn around and who’s looking in your window staring you in the face? Your neighbor. Unless you don’t mind waving to your neighbor in your pajamas, you need window treatments. But if you have tall windows, what options are there?
Tall, dramatic windows can offer spectacular views and add height to a room. But covering them is a whole other story.
The first thing you need to ask yourself is, do I need privacy, or are these window treatments just going to be decorative? If your neighbor is close enough to see what you are eating for dinner, then you probably want window treatments that offer privacy. If you need full coverage, from the top of the window to the bottom, then consider drapes with privacy lining. DrapeStyle has the ability to make any length drape. Select a decorative fabric that complements your room, then simply draw the drapes closed when privacy is needed.
Do you occasionally need the room darkened? Roman shades with blackout lining are the answer. You can keep the shades raised most of the time for a more decorative look, and lower them when the time comes to enjoy a movie at home, or when the baby needs to take a nap.
Do your tall windows offer an incredible view that you don’t want to obstruct? Consider adding sheers to your windows. DrapeStyle carries sheers in several different colors, style and fabrics so you are sure to find one that works for you. Sheers can add drama and softness to a room, without breaking the bank.
Whether you are looking for a classic sheer or something more modern, DrapeStyle has plenty of reasonably priced sheers to choose from.
Want to add a little color to your walls but keep your view? Why not add long drapes to either side of the window? A drape that is 1 or 2 widths wide might be just enough to add a little drama to your room. You can add a decorator touch by using shorter drapery rods to hang your long drapes from. DrapeStyle offers custom drapery hardware so you can order just the right size hardware, custom made for your windows. And by using narrow drapes, you can save a little money. Have you been eyeing a dramatic fabric but having it made into full width drapes might put you over your budget? Decorative drapes are a great way to get that pop of color you want without breaking the bank.
If you really don’t want coverage but need protection from the sun, consider using UV window film on your windows. It will cut down on glare and help protect your furnishings from the sun.
Want to add more drama to your tall windows? Bring the attention up with a band of contrasting fabric towards the top of the drape. Need to ground things a bit? Bring the attention down by adding a band of fabric to the bottom of your drape and your space will feel more cozy.
Need a little help? Feel free to contact us, we’re here to walk you through the process. Drapes are an investment and we want you to be completely satisfied with your purchase. DrapeStyle has been in business since 2002 and we know drapes and curtains. Our seamstresses each have, on average, 25 years of experience. No detail is overlooked. Check out our commercial projects for more examples of extra long drapes.
At DrapeStyle, one of the most common questions we get asked is, “What kind of window treatments do I put on my french doors?”
So often, the answer is roman shades. DrapeStyle can custom make roman shades in any width and length; therefore, we can cover ANY french door of ANY size. DrapeStyle literately has hundreds of fabrics suitable for roman shades. One shade? Two shades? That is up to you. Both options look great, but if you are considering one shade, you will probably need to mount the shade above the moulding so that there is enough clearance for the doors to open and close. If you opt for one shade per window or door, you have a choice between outside or inside mounted shades, both are great additions to french doors.
Drapes are a great option as well. You can select any style, any pleat and any fabric. The drapery rod will be hung above the moulding, usually about three inches, and will need to extend past the doors a few inches on either side of the doors. If you will be opening and closing the drapes often, we suggest that you design your drapes with drapery rings and rods or a traverse rod. Grommets don’t always slide very easily.
Want a more designer look? Add roman shades AND drapes to your french doors. This will give you that designer touch that is often overlooked. The roman shades will give you the privacy you need and the drapes will provide that decorative touch. Mix and match patterns and colors! Layer on the texture! DrapeStyle has over 400 fabrics so you are sure to find fabrics that will compliment each other and look great in your home. You could even custom order a couple of different patterns of drapes that coordinate with your roman shades, and change them out with the seasons!
Not into patterns? Consider a clean, monochromatic look. Neutrals are very in right now, and they can create a serene and soothing environment perfect for your bedroom. DrapeStyle has dozens of neutral colored silks, linens and cotton fabrics to choose from. You can even order samples of anything you see on the website so that you can view the fabrics in your own home. For a truly custom look, roman shades are an inexpensive way to cover your french doors. Purchasing window coverings is an investment and we want you to be satisfied with your purchase. That’s why designers are here to help you with the ordering process. We’re here Monday-Friday 9am-5pm MST so don’t hesitate to contact us.
When lowered, Roman Shades can provide light control, privacy and insulation to your windows. When raised, they look like a decorative valance-what an easy and inexpensive way to transform your space!
Standing alone or paired with our custom drapes or custom curtains, DrapeStyle’s Roman Shades are a stand-out! Each shade is made-to-order according to your specifications right here in our Arizona studio. Choose from any of our Silks, Linens, Cottons, or Polyester blends, along with noise reducing, privacy, or blackout lining options. The customization continues with your choice of cord position and outside or inside mount options. All shades include cleats and mounting hardware.
Inside or Outside Mount?
Once you’ve selected your fabric from DrapeStyle’s 450 fabrics choices, you will need to determine whether you want to mount your Roman Shades inside or outside the window. Would you like a more tailored look? Do you have beautiful molding around your windows you would like to showcase? You may want to consider Roman Shades that are mounted on the inside of the window frame. When measuring for your Roman Shade, take three measurements for the width; at the top of the window, the middle and the bottom. Your width will be the smallest of the three measurements.
For the length, again, take three measurements; left side, middle and right side. Your length will be the longest of the three lengths. A minimum depth of 1 ½” within the window casing is needed in order to mount the shade.
Would you like to create the illusion that your window is larger than it really is? Would you like to hide an unattractive window? Are there any obstructions that might hinder you from mounting the Roman Shade inside the window frame? Outside mounted shades offer more flexibility for mounting. For instance, the shade can be mounted anywhere above the window. You can create the illusion of a larger window by hanging your Roman Shade higher than the top of the window frame. This is also a good option when there is not enough depth within the window casing to mount the shade inside. The outside mount will also provide the best light blockage and privacy.
To measure for an outside mounted Roman Shade, measure the total width of your coverage area. We recommend that you add 1-1 ½” to each side beyond the casing of your window. This will be your ordering width. For the length, measure the height of the coverage area and add 1” above the top casing for mounting.
Whichever mounting option you select, Custom Roman Shades are a great way to dress up a window and enhance your living space.
What is Control Position?
This is a simple one. Would you like the continuous cord that raises and lowers the shade, to hang on the left side or the right side of the shade?
Which Shade Style Do I Choose?
Selecting a shade style will depend on your style and usage of your Roman Shade. All of DrapeStyle’s fabrics can be used to make any style of shade. If you need a little help, we’re here to guide you through the process: 800.760.8257. Here are some helpful descriptions of different types of shades:

Do I need Lining?
In one word, YES. Lining not only gives the Roman Shade weight so that it drapes beautifully, but lining your Custom Roman Shades protects the fabric from damaging sunlight. Selecting the appropriate lining for your room will make all the difference.
Will the shade be in a room such as a nursery or a theater room where you don’t want any light to come through? You will need Blackout Lining.
Would you like privacy but still want some light to come through? Select Sateen Lining.
Are your windows drafty in the winter or does the sun pour through in the summer? Select Bump Lining to repel the heat and absorb cold.
Your Order is Complete!
And there you have it! In just a few easy steps you can order Custom Roman Shades to properly fit your windows.
