Rock and Roll Portfolio
America – the home of legendary rock bands and so many of today’s pop stars. Madonna, Britney Spears, Don Henley, Sting; we have draped and masked stages for the best of them. While we tend to remember a concert in terms of the "set" and the "lighting and effects", the draperies play an often invisible but integral role in how the show comes together. Giant painted stage backdrops set the scene, masking hides tech areas from the crowd, borders dress the floating trusses to hide the lighting instruments, and skirting surrounds the stage and band risers. Soft goods, as they are known to the "roadies", are a major part of any touring set.
Digital Printing Portfolio
If you can visualize it, we can print it. As big or as wide as you want it. Check out our showpage of really impressive digitally printed backdrops and drapes for really impressive showbiz personalities such as Lady Gaga, Kenny Chesney and Brooks & Dunn. And see what can be done to blow away the crowds at major public events and trade shows. We can even combine digital printing with a whole host of special effects that will leave jaws on the floor. Take a look! Rendering vs. finished project – how close will they be? Click here.
Grand drape, tab curtain, austrian, theatrical backdrops, tabs, legs and borders…. These are all words that we associate with the stage and the wonderful world of theatre. Sew What? Inc specializes in theatrical drapery manufacturing, so your needs can all be filled with just one telephone call.

Special Event Portfolio
Grammy Awards, SAG Awards, Golden Globe Awards; you name them and we have draped them! Tents in tennis courts and 5 course dinners in stadiums – the special events industry is all about transformation. Watch while designers, such as Keith Greco transform the ordinary special event into the extraordinary. Custom trade show displays rely on the many effects that drapery can provide.
