We’ve sewn custom drops for the biggest names in Rock and Roll, Hollywood and Fashion. And they keep calling us back for more. Whatever you can envision, we can produce. Elaborately hand-painted or incredibly digitally-printed, yeah, we do that. We’ve got the fabrics, the tools and creative know-how to pull off the extraordinary. Just as important, we’ve got the road-tested experience to know what counts when it comes to practical matters such as durability, FR certification and all the other factors that are the difference between a hit and a headache.

Custom Backdrops Start with Custom Thinking

We believe scenery production is as much an art as it is a craft.  So we nurture the creative spirit at Sew What?.  That is why set designers often consult with our team to arrive at unique set solutions involving surprising fabric selections, unusual cuts, new printing techniques…in other words, whatever it takes to create drama on the stage.  Take a look at our digital stage draperies portfolio to see what we mean.

It’s A Materials World

Whether you are looking for a muslin backdrop or canvas, polyester or Sharkstooth, we have a wide selection of fabrics to work from.  In fact, you can digitally sample our fabric swatches by simply clicking here.  We can offer expert guidance as you decide upon the fabric that best fits your show’s needs.

We’re committed to the success of your production by fabricating custom backdrops that stop the show, whether it’s a major theatrical production, a national rock and roll road tour, the launch of a new fashion line, or an international trade show exhibit.  You can expect nothing less than our best performance.

As one of our customers recently put it:

“…Everybody “oo’ed” and “ah’ed” at the backdrop. It was beyond any of our expectations! I couldn’t begin to tell you how much I personally appreciate your hard work and the beauty of the end product! …Thank you ‘sew’ very much!!!”
