The job was done very professionally. They were very nice and courteous. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending them as well as hiring them again myself. Mary GoodrichSep 9, 2016Verified
Clarrissa made a throw for me from my late husband's t-shirts of all the places we have been over the years and then she made 3 wall hangings for me to give to my daughter's in memory of their Dad. She used his shirts and ties for that. I would highly recommend her for the work she did.Nov 16, 2015Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I charge $75 an hour for consultation, but if we get the job, I waive that fee. The different styles and techniques used to design a home vary a great deal and each job is totally unique in itself. The price depends on the size of the job, how much detail goes into the job, and how elaborate the customer would like to be. I have a set price list for window treatments on my website: www.astartesdraperyworkroom.com and the price of anything else would have to be quoted upon viewing it.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I try to keep as current as I possibly have time for. I take a few classes in the spring each year and network with a lot of professional women. I touch base with other designers frequently to discuss what's hot and what's not. I read a lot of magazines and resource books from the library.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?My Father could craft any design by looking at it and invented his own on a regular basis. I have my Father's talent, but took it to another level by going to college and perfecting it. I have always loved to sew as my Mother taught me at a very early age. I love being creative. I am now expanding and my brother-in-law does all the carpentry and remodeling for the company.
