REAL WORKROOMS -- Minda Fernish
Some of us come late to the workroom — as a second career perhaps. But if you are Minda Fernish, you come to the workroom at your mother Mary’s side. And you leave her workroom knowing you are tasked with passing the knowledge on to the next generation, too. Minda Fernish of Minda’s Draperies in Chico, California, operates a wholesale workroom where she says she “likes to bring decorator’s designs to life.” Coupled with that are her unique perspectives on the one-person workroom’s efficient operation, and how to deal with the dreaded “overwhelm.” An instructor at the Custom Workroom Conference in 2016, Minda shares her knowledge with as much passion as she creates her stunning draperies.
