My Hubby's Family Curtain-Making Business
Its been my hubby's family legacy since 1985 in making and sewing huge curtains for hotels, schools, politicians, businessmen, and for rich and famous people here in our city and to other places too.My father in-law does the main job on the planning and preparation,choosing the right tracking system or pole, measuring and estimation of the face fabric requirements, sewing the curtains and installing it.
My mother in-law does the customer sales, my brother in-law does the pleating and cutting of the textile, and my hubby is the one assisting my father-in-law in sewing the curtain. Both of them does the hard job actually.
I was just amazed how they do this kind of business. It is just unique for a family doing this kind of work and to think that men can do the sewing of curtain. I actually don't know how to sew using an electric sewing machine but my hubby and my father-in-law does it perfectly and it is a big money when its done. When it is a package deal where it includes the whole house including living room, dining room, bedrooms etc, that would usually costs around $2,000.
Last Saturday, I was with them when they installed the curtains of a newly built house of a Mayor in one of our municipality here. It was a very urgent job since the wife of the Mayor wants to finish the work that day, (Saturday) because there will a blessing of their house the following day and they only finish half of it! She wants to finish it even if we will install it at midnight or dawn. The work was done at midnight and we deliver it directly to their new house. I do the ironing of the huge curtain of their living and dining room and it was not an easy job at all.
However, we had still managed to finish the job. We started at midnight and we finished it at 6am. It was a very tiring day since that was a Sunday and its our Sunday Service of our church so we did not have time to rest. But we thanked God for giving us the strength and we are so thankful to Him for all the unmerited favor and blessings He had given to us.
