Meet the Virtual Chapter Board


President

Jennifer owns a one-person workroom which is located in her home. She is primarily a retail workroom, selling fabric, foam, and drapery hardware, however she also enjoys working with young designers in her area. Jennifer has become well known in Florida for slipcovers so she stays very busy with that part of the business.  Recently,  she has been receiving more interest in draperies and Roman shades, which she is enjoying very much. 

Prior to starting her workroom 6 years ago, Jennifer worked for 10 years at a local Bernina dealership.  She sold machines and taught all their guide classes as well as a lot of project classes.  It was a great launching pad for her workroom business.
She has participated in a number of non-profit groups and has been on their boards in various capacities. Jennifer was actively involved in her children’s schools as PTO president and volunteer chairperson as well as on the board of the preschool at her church and was secretary. The board was responsible for overseeing the school and acted as the bridge between school and church. Lastly, she is currently on the board of directors as secretary for a large tennis complex that is owned by the county and the board oversees the day to day operation of the facility.




Vice-President

Born in the Midwest, Jill grew up in Minnesota, started college in Wisconsin, took a brief hiatus to travel, and then continued her studies in Minnesota. She received a thorough education in interior design, window treatment design/fabrication, and upholstery. Jill started Impressive Windows & Interiors LLC when her children were young and worked part-time until they were older. In 2015, before her boys left the nest, she opened a showroom in downtown Hastings, Minnesota. She recognized the need for access to a broader range of products and services for her peers, so Jill founded My Designer Concierge, a buying group for the soft furnishing industry in 2017. In 2019, she furthered her dedication to the soft furnishing industry by founding a cordless shade distribution company focused on child-safety called Cordless-Shade.com. She is a self-proclaimed neat freak and organizational wizard.
