Working From Home

Welcome to Curtains and cushions, I hope you find this Blog interesting and useful. I am a curtain maker who has worked in the soft furnishing trade for many years now.
I work from my own home and I have been working from home for several years now. I have my own sewing workroom where I make curtains, cushions and other soft furnishings.
As I only have a certain amount of room in my workroom , I do not have any space to keep a lot of stock. I do keep a certain amount of curtain making sundries, such as threads, tapes, buckrams etc, but I do not have room for fabrics, linings or interlinings. There is no room for anything bulky which means that the customers have to bring their own fabric and lining for me to make up.
In a way, this is good because then the customer has the choice of where they can buy their fabric , thus giving them the chance to take advantage of sales and bargains. They bring the fabric of their choice with their measurements to me so that I can make it to their requirements.
I always ask the customer to measure the width of the pole or track where they are going to hang their curtains, and the finished length that they would like the curtains to be made to. This gives the customer the choice of  how long they want their curtains to be . All windows and rooms are different and some windows suit long curtains and other rooms suit a shorter pair of curtains.
