Dayle Laing proceeded to suggest positive alternatives for making safe and more environmentally friendly fabric choices to a group of Interior Designers. Her Fabrics 101 seminar was hosted in the showroom of Suzanne Brown & Associates, in the heart of Toronto's Designers Walk. Dayle based her textiles selection criteria on her extensive studying of the latest research in this area, her LEED AP, and her 2 decades of teaching and practice in this field.

Here are some comments from the designers who attended the event:

Very informative for a topic that has very little reliable information available.”

Jeffrey Douglas, Toronto, ON

This should be required information for anyone working in this industry. Great seminar.”

Brenda Lukacsy, Toronto, ON

Dayle's obvious passion for her research on environmentally improved products and how we as designers/decorators can help educate our own clients to make wise "Green" choices, shone through again.  The session was jam packed with extremely current and useful information about the industry that I previously was not aware of, despite my recent formal education in the field of interiors and my university degree in textile science. I think everyone in the field of design would really benefit from attending one or all of Dayle's seminars!" 

Janelle Withers, Toronto, ON

Your knowledge is fantastic and I really learnt so much. I can’t thank you enough for sharing your wisdom with us.”

Tamara Topornicki-Holdip, Toronto, ON

This is an area that is growing in leaps and bounds. Some clients ask for 'green', however many of the successful designers feel they should be suggesting sustainable options to their clients since their clients looks to them for leadership.
