Peg Wagner owns and operates Above and Beyond Window Design out of her home, working with mostly designers.
She fabricates window treatments, pillows, cushions, and roman shades, as well as sells hard treatments. Peg has a bachelor’s degree in education with a major in Home Ec. (Back in the day when they called it
that.) Sewing was in her background.
In 2008, while working part-time in a design store she was introduced to CHF academy. It was near Charlotte NC and her next-door neighbors had just moved to Charlotte. Peg took the opportunity to go and
take 3 classes while staying in the evening with her former neighbors. She was hooked from day one and her only regret is that she didn’t know about this industry sooner. Peg has met the most amazing, dynamic,
generous women at the CWC conferences and classes.
Before that, she was a “stay-at-home” mom of 2, while helping with her husband’s business as a sales rep in the ski and outdoor industry. His office was at home and he traveled to the states of MI, IN, and Ohio. Peg
was able to manage the office while kids were in school and then take them to sporting practices and events when school was out.
Peg and her husband live in Traverse City, MI and have 2 grown children and 6 grandchildren, 4 of which live one house away from us. Peg knows that is most grandparents' dream come true and does not take that for granted.
In her free time, she likes to mountain bike, road bike, ski, and hike. Peg feels it’s super important to have an outlet to stay physically active so we can keep doing the things we love to do.
