Design Seminars

“I enjoyed the seminar last Wednesday and look forward to your next one. I got several good ideas from seeing your drapery samples and how the different paint colors can change the look of the fabrics.” - L.T. Vienna, VA 

Design Seminars

Linda Bassert frequently gives seminars on design topics, at various locations, days and times. Locations have included Vienna Paint of Vienna, several realty offices, the Design Center of Northern Virginia, a showroom in Herndon, and Damon Galleries, Vienna, VA. The seminars are usually free, with door prizes, and handouts and special offers for each attendee. Light refreshments may be served.

To find out about the currently scheduled seminars or the next custom window treatment trunk show, and reserve your seat, please contact us. Reservations for each seminar enable us to rent the correct number of chairs if needed, and have sufficient goodie bags for each guest. Or contact us simply to get on the seminar invitation list.

Topics of interest to you are always of interest to us. Please let us know if there is a topic you are anxious to have us schedule. Linda’s seminars typically last an hour and a half, but mini-seminars may be scheduled for groups and clubs in need of speakers. Please contact us for a list of suggested topics suitable to a shorter meeting, or to request a topic of particular interest to your group. Most seminars require some setup time in advance due to extensive samples being shown, and other visual aids, and so early access to your group’s meeting location is important.
