The CFI Patterned Carpet Workshop held at the Kansas City Expo Center in June incorporated extensive skills training, with large modules built to install commercial patterns. Training included pattern identification and type of distortion, installing patterns to match in all types of installations, and the introduction of new techniques.
Roberts sponsored the two-day event by awarding a senior power stretcher with rolling case and pattern stretchers to attendees. Jim Smith, national sales manager for the company, was involved in the program and could be seen working in the modules.
