The Drapery-Maker's Coloring Book
This coloring book honors the incredible design and engineering talent of Marylan Bortchardt, the founder and namesake of the M'Fay Pattern Collection. It is an exploration of the most popular M'Fay Patterns within beautifully coordinated roomscape illustrations, each selected from the archives of the Designers Digest and Workroom Manual. Still available as a downloadable resource, the three volumes and over 600 designs within the 1997 Manual, continue to inspire a new generation of window treatment workrooms and interior designers.
Much more than pages to color, this book presents many possibilities for window treatment design. The back side of each coloring page features an accompanying reference list that includes the detailed documentation of each component and how one may acquire the pattern(s) and instructions to fabricate. Now it’s your opportunity to be the interior designer. Color the pages in the spirit of Marylan’s original renderings, or embellish with color and pattern influenced by the textiles of today. Allow your mind to dream of the possibilities, and enjoy the process.
