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.
