My name is Terry Sandlin. I’ve been in the soft furnishing business for 25+ years
starting Terry’s Designing Windows in 2008 after relocating to the Birmingham, Alabama
My earliest memory of sewing is at age 7 making an tunic top for my sister for
Christmas. My start in the drapery business was working in a 1 person workroom 1 day
a week (I would have worked for nothing) My job was to make cording and ruffles
Today I am a mostly to the trade Workroom, working with decorators, designers and a
graphic design artist which hand illustrates all her own fabric collections. She shows at
High Point Market twice a year and I have to opportunity to fabricate all the soft
furnishings for her displays.
I am thankful that after 25+ years, Sewing is still my passion.
