Customer Feedback


Most of our clients come from word of mouth recommendations, but don’t just take my word for it. This is what some of my clients have said about me: 

"I recommend Nicola's work to everyone. She has made several blinds and curtains for me all of which are beautiful, fit perfectly and look fabulous. Nicola's work is professional, accurate and creative. Thanks Nicola."
J. Quinn. Therfield

“The roman blind Nicola made for my son’s bedroom was better quality than the previous John Lewis one we had made – and at a fraction of the cost. Nicola provides a great service and I would not hesitate to recommend her."

“Nicola Black is efficient, professional and courteous to work with. Nicola has made roman blinds for my home on two occasions and both blinds were a perfect fit, worked well and looked great! In addition, I feel the blinds were excellent value for money. My blinds were made very quickly and were very well made. Nicola gave me really helpful advice on choosing fabric for my blinds, getting the size right and locating my chosen fabric for the blinds. I would not hesitate to recommend Nicola to anyone and I will definitely use her services again!”

Mrs. W, Hare Street

"Nicola made Roman Blinds and Dress Curtains for a front room bay window. They are made so beautifully with every attention to detail. What I thoroughly appreciated was Nicola's keen eye for colour and design and her advice on what materials to purchase, curtain poles to buy etc. You simply do not get that service from a shop! I am extremely pleased with the end result and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her service."

Tina Kleiner-Mann

Mrs. F, Therfield

"We love our curtain!"

Mrs.G, Buntingford

"Thanks again for our fabulous curtains." 

Mrs. H,  Meesden

"Nicola, I am really pleased with the work you have done for me. You have covered a cushion pad for a particular chair. The cover was very precisely made in a box shape with piped edges and a zip. You centred the fabric design to provide the best effect. You also carefully arranged the fabric design on a small separate scatter cushion cover which also looks very pleasing.


I have been very impressed with the speed and efficiency of your working. On another occasion 2 pairs of curtains that had shrunk in the wash needed to be lengthened. You worked very quickly and professionally and drove 18 miles to my house at short notice to make sure I had the curtains on time and the curtains had been finished beautifully."
Mary Dickenson

'I contacted Nicola to shorten a pair of curtains for me. On meeting her, she was so knowledgeable and professional that I asked her to amend two more pairs of curtains as well!  She fitted the front door curtain with a thick fleece lining, as well as fitting medium linings for the dining room and lounge curtains.

Nicola did all of the work within the timescales that we agreed, she was happy to rehang the curtains with me, and I am over the moon with the end results.  I can highly recommend Nicola as providing a quality service that is value for money."
Mrs. P, Aspenden

"After moving house and being an inconvenient distance from shops Thread & Thimble's contact details were given to me by InMaterial sewing shop in Buntingford, as I did not know anyone who made curtains.

The friendly service and professionalism in measuring, styles, types of finishes (a portfolio of previous work was shown) and advice on how much material I needed to purchase was prompt and easy to follow.  Nothing was too much trouble with my numerous questions, particularly when I found material and pattern repeats had to be accurate!

Three sets of lined pinch pleat curtains arrived on schedule and we are thrilled with the result and highly recommend.  We asked for another window to measured and for a quote so we could get another pair made once we saw the results.  Thank you very much."
Mrs. N, Wyddial
