About Window Dressing

Handmade Curtains, Blinds and Soft Furnishings

Looking Sharp

April and Richard Chant head up the family business and assure you of their personal attention at all times. April has over 40 years experience of sewing and making and offers a professional curtain and blind made to measure service.

Orders are made in the purpose built workshop by April and she is on hand to assist in finding the right window dressing for every situation. She can offer advice on problem windows or doors to reduce heat loss and fading with the appropriate linings and interlinings as well as showing different types of curtains and blinds to assist in creating the desired look for your room.

We work by appointment and can arrange to visit in the comfort of your own home where you can select from samples to create your new window dressing.  Alternatively you can visit the workshop and see all the samples and create your new look there.

We are happy to also make up items in your own fabric.
