Excellent, have had Nina doing jobs for me for a few years now. I look forward to using her services again soon 🙂
Nina provides a great service at a competitive price. She is friendly and reliable, and offers good advice. Enjoy this business to business relationship 🙂
We have 13 windows in our new house and I got Nina to make all of the curtains. She did a great job and did it quickly. they look fantastic!! She is very nice and accomodating. You will get a great product.
Nina did an amazing job converting two long drop curtains sideways into one longer, shorter curtain! She managed to hide the seam under the tape.... I am very happy with a truly professional job.
