Our Curtain Makers Answer Your FAQs

We often get asked similar questions from our customers about the services we offer for bespoke made-to-measure curtains, blinds and accessories. So here our curtain makers answer your faqs. We hope you find the answer you are looking for. If not do not hesitate to ask contact Sophie Sews with any question or query you may have.

Do you do home visits?
We prefer to measure all the windows ourselves as there are always variations and problems that don’t seem obvious to the untrained eye! We can therefore point these out and advise accordingly. 
How far do you travel?

Quotes under 10 miles of Woking, Surrey will be free, 10-15 miles will be £50 and over 15 miles will be £80.  If you go ahead with a minimum of £700 worth of the work quoted, then it will be refunded. All evening quotes will be charged at £50 plus the above charges if applicable.

Do you have a price list?
We work from a set price list however as our work is bespoke we prefer to give you a personalised quotation to illustrate the costs involved. 
What payment methods do you accept?
We require a 70% deposit for all work undertaken.  No fabric will be ordered or any work started until we receive this deposit.  The 30% balance needs to be paid on the day that the work is delivered and/or fitted. Sophie Sews accepts cash, cheque or ideally, a bank transfer.
What are your waiting periods?
All Sophie Sews curtains and blinds are made-to-measure by our team of local professionals, hand finished with great care and attention, and delivered to your door within 4-8 weeks. This is very favourable compared to many high-street names that take 12 weeks. There is also a seasonal rush at certain times of the year.  We will always advise on an approximate time scale on quotation.
Do you hang and/or fit the work that is made?
 Yes fitting poles, tracks, blinds, as well as hanging curtains, is itemised on your quote. You can remove this service if you are looking for ways to keep costs down.
Where can I get fabrics?
We can bring fabric books to our initial meeting for you to look through.  We always ring beforehand to try and get a feel for the sort of fabrics and look that you are seeking. We can obviously only bring as many as we can carry! However, we have a larger range of fabric books for you to view at our shop.

We can also work with your own fabric if you have already found what you like.

“Sophie sews is definitely a company that I would recommend…In fact, I don’t normally write things good or bad about companies however, I’m so happy with the time, care and personal touch that Sophie has given to me whilst doing my curtains and blinds that I just had to…There is still a lot more that Sophie sews is doing for me but so far so good (in fact excellent) and I’m confident that will be the case the whole time. Thank you Sophie!”
