FABplus Day was FABulous!


A special Day at Designers Walk ® was June 3rd  when WWFA member suppliers presented a day of seminars on Fabrics and Window Treatments.  Our Special Thanks go to all who participated, Decorators, Designers, Presenters and both our own WWFA Staff and the people and management of the NEWLY RENOVATED Resource Centre at Designers Walk ® who gave such dedicated attention to the Full House of registered attendees in this great one of a kind facility.


WWFA is sorry that we had to turn last minute registrations down but there will be other opportunities for sure.


We had many thanks for the professional level of the presentations starting with CROWN Wallpaper & Fabrics high interest wallpaper and fabric co-ordination, followed by NIGHT & DAY Window Décor a New Hunter Douglas Gallery Dealer and prior to lunch ROBERT ALLEN presented their new alliance of paint colour co-ordinations with Sherwin Williams.


A tasty lunch was provided by WWFA’s insurance providers TRIPEMCO who specialize in business liability insurance as well as general insurance for small business.  Thank you Tripemco!


Following lunch KRAVET FABRICS introduced Mr. Pablo Martiarena, Export Director of Spain’s Gaston Daniela who told the history of his company and showed many of the fine fabrics from 2009 collections.


MAXWELL FABRICS rounded off this fine series of seminars with a showing of their latest silks and talked about their many other ranges and trends which are now available through Tessuti Uno. We thank our member Maxwell Fabrics for flying their principals from Vancouver for this event and are sure they were not disappointed as most of the attendees stayed on for this final session.


We had expected Alhambra Drapery Hardware to round off the day but due to sickness they couldn’t make it so we shall have to save them for another day.


Attendees were invited to a wrap up at the Kravet Showroom where they were lavishly provided with good Spanish wine and tapas.



Again we Thank EVERYONE who gave their time and energy to make this a memorable day!
