Consultation 

Understanding your requirements

My approach is to simplify the process as I understand that choosing your blind or curtain can be challenging and confusing. I will you help with the specific style, material and cost to ensure that you have the product that is right for you.

I will start with an initial conversation either by phone or email to understand your broad requirements and after this will set up a face to face meeting at your home.

I aim to be as clear as possible on the timeframe so you will know when your project will be completed.

Fabric selection & measurement

Visit to your home

I have a large supply of fabric samples that I can bring with me to give you all the inspiration you need.  From fabric designers such as Zoe Glencross, Clarke and Clarke, Ian Mankin, James Hare and Warwick.  

 

I will advise on the best solution for the space and measure during the visit.

Quotation

Detailed estimate

Once you have chosen your fabric and style, I will provide a detailed, no obligation estimate. I can quote and provide for everything that is needed, including materials, labour and an installation estimate from my fitter.

Once the estimate is accepted and a deposit paid, I can order the fabric and start on the project.

Sew & Make

Project commences

I make everything in my workroom at the bottom of my garden.  I understand how keen my clients are to follow the sewing process, so I send regular updates and photos to keep you fully up to date in the making process. No product is delivered unless I am truly satisfied.

Installation

Final fit

Ensuring your product is fitted correctly is crucial to any project so once your products are finished to the highest standard, I will arrange a fitting date.  I will come to your house with your curtains or blinds and with the help of a professional fitter, we will install everything and ensure it all fits perfectly.

The final invoice will be sent to you upon completion and delivery.

I first approached Caroline to make some blinds and curtains for our new sitting room.  We had a box bay window extension built which looked great but I thought it would be extremely difficult to find a window dressing to fit.  It wasn't until Caroline came round with a box of gorgeous fabric samples, not to mention some great ideas of how to fit roman blinds in the bay, that it all became easy. Once we narrowed down the choices, Caroline left me with a few samples to mull over & discreetly measured up in order to provide a quotation.  We decided on a beautiful Clarke and Clarke fabric for the box bay and matching Roman blind for the second window & for the garden window a gorgeous neutral fabric with a navy leading edge and navy Pom Poms.  The quality of work and attention to detail was incredible.  The pattern on the blind fabric matched in the middle when the blinds were lowered.  Absolutely stunning.
