Before an order is placed, I am happy to help with measurements to make sure your custom order is correct. I do not offer refunds for custom sizes. Contact me here with your requirements.

I know that what looks like one color on a computer screen looks different on another, so I am happy to provide a small sample of fabric for you to see the color for $1. For more information on this, please visit our Fabric Samples – Swatches category.

I am usually able to get my orders out within 2 weeks. If I have to special order fabric, it may take a little longer, but I will let you know the time frame as soon as I am informed. If there is an unforeseen problem, I will let you know ASAP.

I am asked about terminology often.

  • Length – up and down.
  • Width – across side to side.
  • Casing – the area where your curtain rod slides through, sometimes called a rod pocket.
  • Header – the small amount of fabric above the casing. This is sometimes called a ruffle.
  • Lining – lining fabric is added to the back of the curtain or valance to add extra body. It helps keep the sun from fading the fabric, hides the side and hem seams, and for full panels, helps to keep the heat and cold out.
  • Cafe Curtains or Tiers – cafe curtains or tiers are usually hung about half way up the window frame. They are designed to add privacy while letting in light.

Meet The Owner

My name is Cheri Lynch. I live in Parma, Ohio (just south of Cleveland). Living in a climate that keeps me indoors 6 months of the year gives me plenty of time to be creative. I have been sewing since I was 6 years old and have been crafting all of my life. I am honored to share my talents with you. When I am not cutting fabric or sewing, I am usually walking in the woods out in my backyard or cooking up something yummy!

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Warm Wishes,
~ Cheri
