  • New member saying hi

    I thought it was about time i introduced myself
    My name is sharon, surprise surprise........and i live and work in the west midlands. I have been making curtains for about 3 years now, i work from home, have the garage converted.
    I have been a member of CHF for quite a while, which is where i know Liz, Mary Ann and Penny from.
    I work with a designer and also have my own clients and get referalls that way. I love what i do most of the time, although i have had a testing week, trying to get too much done is when i make mistakes, i missed a flaw in some fabric, after i cut it!!! and made a roman blind 1" too short so have said i will re-make .........oh well i'm sure i'm not the only one these things happen to......
    looking forward to getting to know you all.

      Hi Sharon

      Welcome to the forum - I work from my converted garage as well - my garage is external and gets cold in winter - so I work slower!!! well thats my excuse.

      The forum holds a great source of information Sharon and is addictive!

      Look forward to hearing more from you.

        Hi Sharon! Yes, we have crossed paths on the CHF forum a few times! And don't feel bad - a few years ago I made a roman shade about 5" too narrow (apparently forgot to measure for it, and used the measurement from another window). So yes, those kind of days do happen for me too!

        Talk to you soon.

                Hello & welcome Sharon

                My dad had a great saying "he who never made mistakes, never makes anything". Funny how often I find myself saying it

                  Hi Sharon,

                  Have you ever been thinking about curtains so much that you left the gas hose in your VW Beetle and drove off..ripping the hose right out of the pump? (I guess some of you call it petrol instead of gas?) Or left the notebook of measurements that you just absolutely had to have today on the back of your husband's pickup truck so he could drive off and scatter them across Texas?

                  Not that I know anyone that has ever done that...just wondering. (sheepish grin)

                    Thanks everyone for the lovely welcome.....
                    Kathy, My garage is external also, except for one wall attached to the house, and i know what you mean about the cold. I did have a radiator put in, and i have used interlining to put in the gaps in the roof, but i wouldnt go back, i love my space.

                    Liz, i suppose we have to look on the positive side, when it comes to roman blinds we are not talking about too much fabric to replace!!!!

                    Hi Pen,
                    I reside in the lovely 'Black Country', just outside of Dudley, Birmingham is about 15 miles from me. Why did you decide to change location?

                    Jane, i like yours dads saying, will have to try and remember that one....

                    Mary Ann i think we have our crazy moments because we have too much going round in our heads,i just pray i dont have too many too often, just now and again is enough.......

                    Sharon

                      Hi Sharon,
                      Sorry, didn't see your answer about your location before. I didn't decide to change location, my husband did - wanted another building project so we've bought a barn to convert with a live/work unit that will be all mine!!

                      Regards
                      Kind regards
