The International Window Coverings Expo (IWCE '17) will open to design professionals on March 8 in Charlotte, NC, but there's a full day of events scheduled for March 7 that make it worth getting into town early!

Home Décor From the Ground Up

IWCE has partnered with Deb Barrett, a recognized leader in design education and co-founder of the High Point Market VIP Experience, for a unique pre-show day trip to High Point, the center of U.S. design. Barrett has organized behind-the-scenes access to a fabric mill and design studio, exclusive presentations from experts in the fields of upholstery, rugs, bench-made furniture, home accessories, and much more. With presentations on the bus to and from stops, a luncheon, and an afternoon filled with private showroom visits, it’s a perfect opportunity to discover what High Point has to offer any design professional.

Workroom Certification Fast Track

Award-winning workroom professional and designer, Staci Faulkner, will lead the Window Fashion Certified Professional FastTRACK Workroom program—six weeks of education compressed into an intensive day and a half! A combination of presentation and hands-on learning will cover basic business set-up, basic workroom set-up, fabrication of panels, valances, Roman shades, cornices, and bedding with a test given during the last session. It’s an effective and efficient way to learn a lot, earn certified status, and make the most of a trip to Charlotte.

Duke Mansion Tour and High Tea

This elegant property, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is now an exclusive 20-room B&B and executive retreat, with more than four acres of beautifully landscaped grounds, including a Southern garden that was unveiled just last spring. A guided tour covers the many historical and design highlights the home and ground have to offer as well as high tea with freshly prepared delicacies from acclaimed chef Harrison Booth.

Following these pre-show events Barrett and others will be presenting a full slate of seminars and workshops as part of IWCE’s educational program. Highlights include Barrett’s first full design showcase in four years; a keynote presentation by Carl Dellatore on the insights he learned while working on his best-selling book Interior Design Master Class; the history of embellishment by Jana Platina Phipps, the Trim Queen; and more than a dozen more.
