Lynne and I agree it was the most carefully wrapped item we have ever received and we shop for lots of items online.

We will have no hesitation in recommending you to our friends who are interested in vintage items.   Lynne and Jim

 

'Thank you so much for sending through the lampshade.  It was perfectly packaged and I absolutely love it :) If I ever need another lampshade in the future I’ll definitely come to you – it’s nice to have a one-off item that other people don’t have'   Andrea

 

‘Jane, I’m absolutely delighted with your work, it’s amazing how happy a lampshade can make me, it’s brilliant. Thank you so much for your advice, patience and wonderful work’.  Shirley, Cheshire.

I take commissions from you whether you are an individual, a shop or the trade - I make shades in all shapes and sizes - using modern laminate backings with your choice of fabric attached, or the traditional soft shades, hand sewn and tailored to suit - either stretched across the frame or gathered or pleated. I am based near Reigate, Surrey in sunny south of England but take mail order commissions from all over the UK. Please see the Contact page for current time slots.

In the small shop here, there are a few shades for sale - vintage, hand sewn or drums. Please ensure you sign up to receive our newsletters to hear about new stock, news and events.

In my workshops I teach you how to make them to a professional level either to set up your own business - or just for fun, for you or your friends. Please see the workshop page for more detail. I am based in sunny south of England and can travel!
