Patterns Plus creates, designs, manufactures and markets drapery and top treatment patterns for windows.

We started our business in 1990 and have customers in all 50 states as well as Canada, Italy, Trinidad, Mexico, Scotland, Japan, Israel, Australia, New Zealand, England, Germany, Puerto Rico, Bahamas, West Indies and Jamaica.

Our patterns are unique and designed for the professional designers and drapery workrooms.

Our full size patterns are professionally printed on durable white paper and come with a step-by-step instruction booklet. The booklet includes detailed sketches along with fabric suggestions, how to figure yardage, where to cut, where to sew, where to hem, how to adjust pattern for different size windows, and many other time, money and labor savings tips.

We also attend and/or conduct seminars at all major and other regional or local trade shows sponsored by Window Fashions Magazine and/or Messe Frankfurt and others.

Many of our designs have been featured in Window Fashions, Woman's Day and other magazines and publications. We have been writing columns for Window Fashions Magazine since 1991 covering a variety of subjects.
