Maxwell Fabrics is excited to introduce drapery as a new addition to the Essentials collection! The first Drapery Essentials launches two casual drapery constructions, Fielder and Cricket. Designed to mimic a cotton blend with the ease of use of a synthetic, the palette focuses on highly useable neutrals with the addition of chambray and denim blues.

Small businesses called for a speedy end to rotating walkouts launched recently in four cities by Canada Post employees, citing concern that a prolonged strike could chew into their profits ahead of the busy holiday shopping season.
The Canadian Federation of Independent Business also urged the post office to rein in spending to reduce costs and warned postal workers that continued job action could hurt them and their employer.
