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.
