Custom-built theatrical curtains do not have to solely be made just for international rock tours, renowned Broadway productions, larger than life residencies in Las Vegas, or enormous arena performances. We are thrilled to work with clients of ALL varieties, and truly enjoy being able to provide gorgeous, one-of-a-kind custom drapery for all of our customers, no matter what their needs might be or where they might be located. Everything from sound baffling and light blocking, to color/design themed, to purely aesthetically pleasing–we delight in taking our customer’s design vision and helping them turn into breathtaking reality.
This past Spring we had the distinct privilege of working with the delightful Jennifer Giacomazza, purchasing agent for The Mission Church Carlsbad here in Southern California. They wanted to camouflage the front wall of the church with some elegant, luxurious-looking curtains for their upcoming Good Friday and Easter services. However, this drape needed to not only help mask off that specific area and fit in with the existing color scheme and overall motif of the church, but it would also need to be adaptable enough so that their team could utilize the drapes in the future to create a brand-new look and feel for their various special events and services, too.
One of the most efficient and successful ways to choose the precise right fabric for your custom drapery project is to discuss your preferred color, nap, texture, appearance, and finish with one of our insightful sales reps here at SW. This way we can better assist you and your team with suggestions and options based on your job’s own individual requirements. After reviewing the eSwatches on our website with Jennifer to narrow down the choices, we were more than happy to send physical fabric samples directly to her. This way she and her team could choose the exact fabric that they felt would work best for their own unique needs—which ended up being lightweight, velvety, IFR 8oz. Super-Vel in “Oyster,” made with hidden sewn ties on top to conceal the hanging hardware. This exquisite fabric is fantastically versatile in that it reflects colorful lighting extraordinarily well, it is inherently flame retardant (so it can be washed and spot-cleaned as needed), and it has a very “soft hand” so it works superbly in pleated drapery.
As you can see from these photos provided by the church staff, their Easter Service lighting and staging was absolutely breathtaking (done masterfully by their lead pastor, Pastor David Menard), and they were extremely pleased with how this new drapery aided with the final touch with their overall design—as were we! Sew What sincerely looks forward to our next project with Jennifer and the fine folks at The Mission Church Carlsbad.
