Company History

Sew What? Inc. ” It’s not a question, it’s the answer.”

Sew What? was destined to be “the answer” from the moment it was conceived. The early 1990’s left no question in any production manager’s mind that there was a desperate need for a soft goods supplier with first hand knowledge of the theatre, experience with the “tourability” of fabrics and the willingness to deliver the goods “yesterday”.

Established in 1992, Sew What? began by designing, manufacturing and installing theatrical drapery and stage curtains. Strong company values and a clear mission statement combined with unwavering determination to provide a “customer-centric” service have helped establish a loyal customer base and the reputation as the Theatrical Drapery Manufacturer and Custom Sewing Service for the touring industry.

See news report about how American theatrical drapery manufacturer and U.S. soft textile manufacturer, Sew What? Inc. has begun applying “Made in America” labels to their stage and theatrical drapery products to showcase that they are all-American-made.

Ms. Duckett has called upon the entertainment industry, their primary source of business, to rally behind the effort to buy American-made products and support U.S. companies as much as possible. This commitment to representing U.S produced goods includes a small offering of Rock n Roll Clothing Brands and Rockstar Jeans that Ms Duckett offers thru her “micro entity” Rock’n Roll Outfitters. The theme fits perfectly with the backdrop client base – and gives another creative outlet to the seamstress who loves the music on stage as much as off stage.

Duckett has offered, “It’s imperative that we as Americans make the effort to support and purchase products made in America by an American labor force. Every time a U.S. mill closes, the chances of another U.S. mill opening in its place are slim to none. So it’s up to us.”
