About Me

Karen 50I love the idea that…“Your home should tell the story of who you are & be a collection of what you love” (Nate Berkus)

I grew up surrounded by people with an appreciation of historic decorative detail & have always had a passion for textiles & colour which started with A’ level Textile Design & progressed through City & Guilds Interior Design.  I love the detail in design.

I am professionally trained in traditional hand sewing techniques for making curtains, blinds & lampshades. I keep up to date with all the latest methods by exchanging ideas with other soft furnishers at networking events & attending design shows. 

From my workroom in the ancient market town of Great Dunmow, North Essex I make traditional, timeless & contemporary made to measure home furnishings.  I aim to provide an affordable, tailor made, friendly design service using either your own fabrics or you may prefer to choose from the lovely selection of fabrics that I have to offer.  I also have a range of tracks, poles & beautiful trimmings to complete your special scheme.

Don’t hesitate to contact me to discuss your next project.
