We have a great selection of linings as well. You can choose from blackout, thermal, cotton or polycotton and you can even have them interlined with cotton bump or poly bump in a choice of two weights. All our linings and interlinings are described in more detail here. We pride ourselves on our good Customer Service so please get in touch with us and our skilled staff will help you with your exact requirements.
As well as curtains, our makers can make cushions for you in co-ordinating or contrasting fabrics. You can choose from simple cushions that dress your furniture ready to be changed with the seasons or, when you require a more fitted cover, we can make you a boxed cushion. They make great window seat cushions in the home and we can also make them for your caravan, your boat or even your shepherds hut and will even pipe them for you on request. All our covers are made with a zip, enabling you to simply remove them for washing.
We are reintroducing a number of curtain poles and curtain tracks. These range from the simple wire for net curtains through basic curtain track to metal curtain poles.
In harmony with our bespoke curtain making service we offer curtain poles and tracking to the exact length and colours you require.
