Excellent Guest Turnout for Discussion Panel and Live Auction Event!


The Curtain Exchange of St Louis had an excellent turnout for its discussion panel and live auction event that was held on April 10. According to store owner Ellen Ross, 26 women from the St. Louis region gathered to drink Gin Basil Sparklers, eat chocolate from Lake Forest Confectioners, and listen to three professional women tell their stories. The women, Brooke Pratt, owner of Sucre Shop, Jill Crane, an associate planner with Simcha's Events, and Joni Spear, an interior designer with 20 years experience, braved a Tornado to share their tales. Pratt talked about how after unexpected media exposure (including the Nation's top blogs, The Today Show and Martha Stewart Living), her little shop took off in less than a year. Crane revealed her planning tactics and how she executes complicated events. Spear spoke about the challenges of being an independent interior designer as more and more people attempt to design their homes themselves. 

“While a Tornado warning broke up the panel discussion half way through, the ladies still seemed to enjoy themselves,” says Ross. “And everyone took home delightful swag bags with Sucre Shop goodies!”

This event helped to promote Padding for Paws, organized by The Curtain Exchange to support shelters and rescue organizations by donating cuts of interlining, a fleecy cotton material used in the manufacture and creation of curtains and window coverings.
