SPRINGFIELD – Lisa Scheff, owner of Lisa Scheff Designs of Longmeadow, went behind bars at Samuel’s in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, on June 25, to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Scheff was “charged with having a ‘Big Heart,’” and taken into custody to serve her time.
“It’s important for me give back to my community and support local charities,” Scheff said of participating in the fund-raiser.
Market Mentors, LLC, Robert Charles Photography, The Light Touch Upholstery, Connecticut Lighting Center, GDR Electric, Paint Perfect, Cortina Tile and Santo C. DeSpirt Marble and Granite were among the contributors who helped Scheff raise more than $800.
The “Lock-Up” is the association’s premier fund-raising program. Business and community leaders, across the country, agree to be “put behind bars for good,” where they utilize their vendors, co-workers, family and friends to get donations that will go toward their “bail.”
Lisa Scheff Designs is proud to sell motorized shades for Western Massachusetts and Northern Connecticut residents. We are especially excited to be able to show them off at Robert Charles Photography in East Longmeadow where we installed Hunter Douglas motorized Vignette Modern Roman Shades. We were able to discuss the benefits of motorization with Mass Appeal’s Ashley Kohl in December of 2013.

Child Safety Promotion
Did you know that traditional cord lock lifting systems and continuous cord-loops on blinds and shades in your home are a potential hazard to your children and pets? As professionals in the window covering industry, we aim to raise awareness about this hazard and show you safe alternatives for your home that are beautiful and functional. For this purpose, Lisa made an appearance on Mass Appeal in September of 2013 to discuss Child Safety and window coverings as we headed into October which is Child Safety Month. Check out the video below.
That’s why the window coverings industry uses warning tags, warning labels, and other methods to communicate the potential hazards of corded window coverings. The warning shown here, for example, communicates the important message about cords being a potential strangulation hazard and suggests choosing cordless alternatives or products with inaccessible cords.
Many people are unaware of this hazard in their own homes and are also unaware of the alternative products available to help keep your family and pets safe.
