The designers at Waverly Fabrics are some of the most talented in the industry. Each season we anticipate the new Waverly fabric designs and trends. We are a large e-commerce retailer of Waverly fabric by the yard. Many customers come to us to purchase Waverly fabric by the yards only to realize we fabricate just about every imaginable window treatment including Waverly Curtains. Although we stock a nice selection of Waverly fabrics in our workrooms, we can’t possibly stock all 2,000 plus.
So how do we satisfy all the customers who want to make Waverly Curtains in one of the Waverly fabrics we don’t stock? Simple, we just order the fabric required directly from Waverly and ship it straight to the workroom for fabrication. We figure out the yardage your curtain project will require, the amount of lining and all the other little details that go into our amazing finished Waverly Curtains. You don’t have the headaches of trying to figure this out and coordinate all the moving parts yourself.
Our normal production time is 12 to 20 working days for fabrics we stock in the workroom. When we bring Waverly fabric into the workroom, this typically adds 5 working days to the schedule for shipping and inspection.
In the old days, we had to quote each Waverly Curtain project off the website. This year we started adding all new Waverly products to the site including Waverly Curtains. You can now pick a curtain style you like and then price it in your favorite Waverly fabric pattern right on the site without have to wait for a custom quote. We are adding dozens of new Waverly products this year including Waverly Valances, Waverly Roman Shades, Waverly Pillows, Waverly Headboards, Waverly Shower Curtains and more.

We get so many calls from hotels, restaurants and other commercial spaces wanting to have their custom made window treatments and custom bedding made with fabric that is fire retardant. While all commercial spaces need to meet strict fire codes, homeowners don’t have such restrictions. However, we do get the occasional call from a homeowner who wants fire retardant fabrics.
Until recently, fire rated fabrics were “commercial” looking. Frankly speaking they were just plain ugly. You’ve seen the fabrics probably a million times when you stayed at any of the many roadside motels. You’d never put that stuff in your home or commercial space if you had a choice. In the past, if you wanted a nice fabric and pattern, you would have to pay to have the fabric sent out for a fire retardant treating. It can be expensive and time consuming.
At Fabricworkroom.com, we now offer a great selection of fire retardant fabrics that are beautiful. You would hesitate to put these fabrics in your home or commercial space. No extra cost, no extra time and most of all – not ugly!
While many of our customers are looking for fire retardant fabrics for churches, schools, restaurants, bed and breakfasts and hotels, you just may want to consider them for your home. With the holidays around the corner, your fireplaces will start getting some use and many parents feel safer having their draperies, bedding, pillows and table covers in safe fire retardant fabrics.
You can easily browse a fire retardant fabric on our site by typing in the search box, “fire retardant”. You can order a free sample of the fabric to see how it looks in your home.

To calculate the total length of your table runner, measure your table from end to end. F or your Table Runner measuring follow these simple steps.
#1. Decide on how much drop you desire (6″ drop on each side is common). Add the table length plus the desired drop multiplied by 2 to get the total length. If you table was 48″ long, your calculation using a 6″ drop is: (48″+6″+6″=60″ total length)

Fabric on most products runs north to south (top to bottom). Railroaded fabric runs east to west (left to right). On specific products like this railroaded fabric cornice and fabrics such as solids, the workroom will railroad the fabric to eliminate seams. On flat valances and window treatments if you can have the fabric railroaded it is the way to go. Remember that this only applies for valances that over 45″ wide. If you are under 45″ you will not have to worry about vertical seams since fabric is generally 54″ wide off the bolt.

Many fabrics have a unique pattern that repeats throughout the fabric. Florals are a good example of repeating patterns. On the other hand, solid patterns don’t have any repeat.
If you want your patterns to line up at the seam or from product to product then fabric pattern matching is needed. To match a pattern at the seam, additional fabric is needed to line up the pattern at the seams, which is a little more costly than no pattern matching.
To keep costs low in our Semi Custom Decorative Drapery department, we do not pattern match at the seams. However, you can for a small upcharge select pattern matching as an option.
