Textile Pro program sells out in 72 hours

October 10, 2011

Rug expert Lisa Wagner and fine fabric expert Jim Pemberton have collaborated on a new training program to develop the next generation of textile specialists in those respective fields.

“We have a serious deficit in specialists in the fields of rug and fine fabric care because the current training model in our industry is broken. This is our way of fixing this problem through a multi-faceted training process,” Pemberton said.

The Textile Pro program is a three phase training process that expands over six months incorporating on-line basic textile training, in-person advanced training, as well as strategic marketing, business development, and technical support. The next group of Textile Pro companies will be chosen as the first group finishes their curriculum in January 2012.
