Pine House Drapery
The Workroom

Nancy's experience in crafting with fabric started at a young age when her mother taught her to use their old Singer and she began making clothes for her dolls and then for herself and others. She married her husband Rob in 1979, and each of their homes got custom draperies and other soft furnishings.

She established her drapery workroom in her garage in 2001, after leaving a career in computer programming and working several years  in other sewing fields, including custom apparel, alterations and appliqued clothing. She started the business with 2 home machines and a cutting table from a fabric store, serving retail customers and doing everything from design to installation. Industrial equipment  was added along the way and the business became Pine House Drapery in 2007. In 2008 a new workroom was built in East Jordan, Rob joined the business as an upholsterer and Pine House Drapery began serving interior designers in northern Michigan.

Pine House Drapery is a professionally equipped workroom, with industrial sewing machines suited for each task from lightweight sheers to heavy upholstery. A large worktable is used for efficient cutting and tabling of window treatments, and a professional boiler iron with the combination of steam and low temperatures needed for today's home decor fabrics ensures a beautiful finished look.

We attend classes and seminars to keep up with the latest techniques in the custom home furnishings industry, including using adhesives when appropriate and sewing and/or handsewing when it is not.  There is never one way to craft an item, the art is in knowing what will work best in each situation.
