Linda Klein, a Roeland Park resident, reached out to the Roeland Park community via Nextdoor for tie donations — and Roeland Park delivered. 

As Klein, a teacher at EPiC Elementary School in Liberty, Missouri, searched for an easy, cost-effective replacement for her classroom curtains, she stumbled upon “no sew” window treatments. She thought on the no-sew idea, and in the spirit of EPiC’s creative culture, and came up with business tie curtains.
