There just are not enough hours in the day. I need a recipe for cloning myself and another six of me would really make things happen just that little bit faster!
It's exciting times at the moment for the entire family and team at Ideal Drape Makers. With our shop launched only a few short months ago, we are quite frankly astounded with how well it is being received. With 20,000 products it's starting to attract quite some traffic and it is so pleasing to see a vision realised in such a tangible way.
One of the most important and, at times, time consuming elements of purchasing custom made drapery solutions is fabric selection. It's impossible for any retailer to carry all swatches of all fabrics, try as best we may, to have everything for everybody. The vision for the store was to bring all the choices together so that visitors could compare and make informed decisions, not only about what choices they have, but also the ability to order cuttings so that they are able to go on more than a mere photograph, while at the same time being able to 'touch and feel' their shortlisted candidates via our cutting service, which to be fair full credit is due with the fabric houses whose brands we represent on the site and who offer free cuttings as part of their superior service.
Thank you to all those who have dropped us a line, to say how much they appreciate the site and to all our new customers who have purchased fabrics from us.
Thank you also to the many brands and the distributors behind those brands who have really made this site possible.
I'm busting at the britches to tell you all what's next with regard new brands and products which will be added to the store shortly. I've promised myself that I won't let too much on; mainly because the preparation of the new items to our catalogue is painfully slow and fraught with delays and if I was to announce details now, I would risk disappointing you, if our scheduled release of the expanded catalogue is delayed. ...
... How was that for a tease? :))
If you haven't seen the store yet you can find it at the following url:
We have started writing a special FAQ for the store and although we have a mailing list, I have yet to create a separate form for our newsletter signup. They are all on our todolist.... Just some of the not so minor things that are very much on our todolist.
