Pate-Meadows Designs specializes in the creation of professional sewing patterns. We have created a line of valance patterns and drapery panel patterns for the latest designs for high-end window treatments. These curtain patterns include details not found in most home-sewing drapery patterns. By using our curtain patterns, you will be able to create your own beautiful, professional-looking curtains with your choice of fabric and design. Our patterns cater to all levels of sewing experience so you don't have to be a sewing expert to achieve stunning results.

Our step-by-step sewing instructions and detailed illustrations will give you all the necessary expertise needed to achieve fabulous-looking curtains. In addition, our curtain patterns provide instructions on custom sewing techniques such as piping, interlining and contrast bandings. Unlike Simplicity or Butterick valance patterns, Pate-Meadows curtain patterns give instructions and techniques used in professional workrooms.

If you have basic sewing skills, you should have no problem achieving truly stunning results with our valance curtain patterns. Take a look at our testimonials and also our picture gallery to see some of the fantastic window treatments our customers have created using our curtain patterns. These curtain pictures will inspire you with all the fantastic window treatment ideas.

There are two lines of curtain patterns available: Southern Living Patterns, created for Southern Living Magazine and its Idea Houses, and Pate-Meadows' own Show Home Patterns which includes lots of valance patterns in addition to drapery panel patterns.

Pate-Meadows Designs has also introduced a line of drapery hardware that includes unique knobs, finials, holdbacks and medallions that are great for hanging many of our curtain valances and drapery panels. This website also provides lots of window treatment ideas and pictures of window treatments in addition to a tips & techniques section.
