Testimonials & Reviews

I cannot tell you how beautiful the curtains and roman blind that Cathy made are. She gave us so much advice on materiel, choosing it, sourcing it, that we’ve got some beautiful designs that I never would have thought of or found on my own.  She is so professional and prompt, accurate, thoughtful and a brilliant preemptive trouble shooter. The craftsmanship is beautiful and the hang makes the room look like a boutique hotel.  I’m completely delighted by the whole experience.

Extremely professional, high quality service. Great service from start to finish with consultation and advice on fabrics and extremely precise measuring session. The result: beautifully hand made roman blinds that fit and look so much better than the previous blinds we had made for the same space. Advice too on how to tweak the fittings to ensure the blinds sit correctly once settled. Will definitely be using Cathy again next time we need any blinds or curtains made and thoroughly recommend her services for anyone looking for new curtains or blinds. 

Cathy made us a set of dining room chair seat pads to our own design. The result was outstanding with fabric pattern perfectly matched and every detail of the piping and zip immaculate. We can highly recommend Cathy’s work and will certainly turn to her for further soft furnishings. Cathy communicated with us regularly and made useful suggestions.

Cathy made three beautiful roman blinds for us; one for our children's room with a fantastic alphabet design and two matching blinds for our bedroom in a geometric design. She was super helpful throughout and provided lots of samples to help us choose. She delivered the blinds on time and to budget at a very reasonable price. These blinds have made a huge difference to the light in our rooms when open and are fully blackout when we need them to be. We couldn't be happier and would gladly recommend Cathy.
