Meet the Team Behind Learn to Choose Window Coverings

Meet the talented team members who have poured their expertise and passion into creating this comprehensive online course. 

Linda Erlam

Linda Erlam had to do something with all the knowledge she had stashed in her head after 25-plus years in the Home Decor business.

so she wrote a few books, and just in case she’d forgotten anything, she wrote the course “Learn to Choose Window Coverings”. Linda realized that while she loved writing, she didn’t want to be a marketer. Ceil DiGuglielmo came to the rescue and took the course under her umbrella. Linda’s focus now is her newest little side hustle,, specializing in patio furniture cushion rescues, and slipcovers, of course, because she can’t leave those behind!
