I have been sewing for as long as I can remember, starting with designing clothes for my Cindy dolls! then slightly larger clothes for myself, moving onto cross stitching and quilting, then once I owned my first home I made all the curtains and roman blinds.


After starting a family, I gradually took on jobs for both family and friends. My hobby and passion finally grew into a professional business, which I am lucky enough to run from a workroom at my home.


I provide a quality service at reasonable prices. Do not be fooled by offers of "free making" on made to measure curtains from large retailers - there is no such thing! Some retailers also do not calculate for the correct fullness in curtains, which will seriously detract from the finished look.


"I pride myself on giving attention to detail, from the first time I meet you to discuss your needs, through the making-up of the curtains, roman blinds or scatter cushion covers, to delivery and fitting. I do not sub-contract any of these bespoke orders, I make them all myself. I only recommend a trusted curtain and blind Fitter with 20 years experience to come into your home to fit poles and tracks and dress your windows."


I offer a measuring service and have 100's fabric samples to browse. I always recommend you choose the fabric in the room you are planning the window treatment for, as fabrics will look different even in other aspects of the same property.
