Roman blinds and soft pelmet

I’d highly recommend Cathy. We started off with one Roman blind but were so happy with it after it was installed that we decided to order two more Roman blinds and a soft pelmet. Beautifully made and great attention to detail. I really appreciated her help in choosing the fabrics and she made sure everything was installed properly. Would highly recommend. l

Beautiful products and a joy to work with!

Cathy made us curtains for our living rooms, privacy voiles and four roman blinds for our bedrooms. They are all beautiful, amazing quality, with terrific fittings and fixtures. Cathy is a joy to work with, she is a real pro, has great suggestions and perfect attention to detail. We would highly recommend her and will definitely use her again! Thank you Cathy!

Expertly made face masks and sofa cushions

I first became acquainted with Cathy when I discovered that she was making face masks for protection against Covid-19. i ordered several masks from her which arrived in due course and i still use to this day. it was then that i discovered Cathy did soft furnishings. i had wanted to replace the two cushions on my seven-foot long antique Victorian scrolled arm sofa. Cathy visited my home, took measurements, sent me an estimate, i ordered the fabric and several weeks later, voila. i now have two wonderful and expertly made sofa cushions. i highly recommend Cathy without reservation.

Fantastic Roman Blind!

Cathy is very thorough and gives her opinion on options, which was greatly appreciated to prevent us from ordering the wrong thing! She has a huge choice of fabrics and spends a lot of time measuring etc. Would definitely use again - when we finally agree on a curtain plan ha!
