Pate-Meadows Designs Giveaway!

***Contest Closed***

Congratulations to Jen @ The Crafting Fiend, lucky #5!

***

Happy Friday!

We’ve made it to another beautiful weekend, and I have a giveaway lined up today that is sure to be a hit with all of you wanting to spruce up your home decor!

Pate-Meadows Designs is a company specializing in easy-to-sew patterns that help you outfit your home with gorgeous, show-home caliber window treatments. With the step-by-step instructions included in every Pate-Meadows pattern, everyone with even the most basic sewing skills can achieve these dynamic looks with ease! What I adore most about Pate-Meadows is how it is such a marvelous example of two mom-preneurs who have managed to build a terrific company. Check out the video below for the full story of how Pate-Meadows came to be.



I first came across the Pate-Meadows line of patterns in an issue of Southern Lady magazine, and I was smitten from the moment I saw them. I immediately made my way to their site to explore, and I found myself coveting just about every pattern in their store! What impressed me, too, on that first visit was how each and every pattern in their arsenal is designated with a skill level, with levels ranging from beginner to intermediate. What a terrific feeling to know exactly what to expect from the creative process!

Our living room windows have been completely stark since we moved into our house, so I was absolutely delighted when I had the opportunity to work with one of the Pate-Meadows patterns and their tools and hardware to create a treatment to give them some flair. I decided the Ruth pattern was just what I was looking for. This pattern yields a dynamic, eye-grabbing result, but as one of the beginner-rated patterns, it is delightfully simple to construct.


As I journeyed through the process of creating and hanging my valance, I found myself referring numerous time to the terrific lineup of instructional videos and helpful tips available on the Pate-Meadows site, with topics ranging from piping how-to’s to details for how to use the marvelous line-up of Pate-Meadows hardware to hang your creations. With Pate-Meadows patterns, you can rest assured that none of the questions you encounter along the way will be left unanswered.

Working with this pattern was a pleasure! The planning and sewing process were simple and straightforward, with detailed charts outlining exactly how much fabric, cording, etc., I would need based on the size of my window. When it came time to hang my creation with the Pate-Meadows post adapters, knobs and rings, I was able to do so in a morning with just a couple of basic tools. I found the tack gun available on their website to be invaluable in assembling my valance, and I adore the fact that in using that tool, my valance is completely reversible! The look I achieved with this window treatment is something that could easily have cost me hundreds of dollars had I opted to have a professional decorator come into my home!


I am absolutely thrilled to announce that the lovely ladies at Pate-Meadows are generously giving away one of their patterns to a lucky Positively Splendid reader!

Just look at the incredible array of patterns to choose from!

    Ooohhh… The “Tracey” and the “Missy” patterns are probably my most favorite and would be perfect for the window above my kitchen sink :-) Thanks so muc – I’m crossing my fingers for this one!

  4. Catherine July 22, 2011 at 1:45 pm #

    I would pick either “Julia” or “Marley”. Thanks for the chance – - I have a living room window that’s been waiting four years for a valance. ;)

  5. Jen@thecraftingfiend July 22, 2011 at 2:02 pm #

    I am torn between the marley pattern and the missy pattern – I love them both!

    I’ve made curtains for three rooms in my home using Pate Meadows patterns. I have the Ruth pattern and will make it next once I find the perfect fabric.

    If I won, I’d pick the Lace-Up pattern.
