During the year, the group met monthly with online meetings and through a private discussion area on the Curtains and Soft Furnishings Resource Library.
WAM members tackled topics like time studies, pricing, fabrication and workroom efficiency, and helped each other with business and workroom challenges The WAM group shared successes and failures in a safe and supportive environment and built friendships that helped them to grow personally and professionally, and to gain confidence as business owners.
