CFI Prepares for Ronald McDonald House Cleaning, Will Hold Color Repair Class

Another year has come and gone. The CFI has a lot of exciting things coming for its members this year through CFI classes and members benefits. The CFI would like to thank Mark Kennedy and Lisa Wagner for giving CFI members access to their three-webinar series, “The Real Dirt of Making Money in the Industry” for free. Many of our members enjoyed the valuable information that they receive from them. Look for more of these informational webinars this year with other guess speakers.

Inland Empire/Orange County Chapter Director Terry Jones needs your help on Jan. 12 for the CFI Annual Give Back Event at the Ronald McDonald House in Loma Linda. This annual event is when CFI members and non-members clean all the upholstery and area rugs in the Ronald McDonald House. It is a great feeling to give back to those who help so many sick children! We would like to thank Chemspec for providing their DFC line of cleaning products to clean the house. If you would like to help, you can call Terry at 714-319-1358 or the CFI office at 800-227-7389.

On February 11, there will be a Color Repair Class at Proline in Sacramento. The instructor will be Melody David of the Dyers Guild. Melody is a second-generation color repair expert that has many years of experience. If you do not offer color repair, you are leaving money on the floor. She has held two-hour classes before and all the people who attended reported to have learned a lot. This will be an all day class with a lot of hands-on training. Lunch will be provided. Cost for the class: CFI members, $125; Non-members $149. Space is limited so e-mail admin@carpet9.org  or call 800-227-7389 to register.
