Denise: I was chatting with my favorite cousin today, Patsy. She overloaded me with questions about this blog. Mainly, it's about "Service, Patsy."
First, let me tell you something about Patsy. She retired this past January after 30 years with United Way (Illinois). Literally, from soup to nuts, Patsy made it into a huge success here in Illinois. Retirement to this 100% Irish woman is making the Dean's List at Northwestern Law School this past semester at age 78-!! With Patsy's 50 some years of business experiences, you bet the students were taking notes from her experiences than the law professors all semester. Who else in the class has met more Presidents and Senators, and famous/infamous wealthy business men than Patsy?
One story she shared was how in '98, Springfield, Ill., for the Governor's Breakfast, one keynote speaker became unavailable. A young "wet-behind-the-ears" senator stepped up to the plate in this absentee's spot. Patsy was sweating buckets, for she had never heard of him. But, when he spoke, she was blown away by his easy mannerism and eloquence in speaking. She never forgot him......nor have we today. Sen. Barack Obama.
Patsy: "Why do "To-the-trade" designer fabrics cost more than if I went to Calico Corners?"
Denise: "We-ll Patsy, no comparison. Fiber, yarn, fabric construction, coloring, and finishing."
Gwen: "The purpose of lovely fabrics is to stimulate awareness and deepen the appreciation of visual beauty. No price can be put on joy, the satisfaction, and even the thrill of living with or seeing stunning fabrics."
Denise: "However, if every fabric in an interior is "fabulous" the effect may well be overwhelming or perhaps pretentious."
Gwen: "That is why, I tell my clients a background fabric often are needed, to provide a handsome contrast for an exquisite fabric piece."
Denise: "I agree, and I always keep window treatments in mind to create successful combinations that use the fabric budget wisely and to the best advantage to create a beautiful interior."
Girlfriends, as you want high end for beauty and long lasting, you can't beat discountdesignerfabricsonline.com low, low, low pricing from show rooms and not inferior bolts for discount stores.
Patsy: "Ok, then why should.............."
Denise: " Patsy, We are out of time and will answer your question for another day." '-'
