Our Services back

  • Blinds

    Bespoke blinds are more popular than ever, with a host of different styles and designs available.

    They work as an excellent solution for a multitude of situations from simple to layered effects, appealing to both traditional and modern tastes. They can work as a stylish solution for windows in small spaces. Roman blinds can be a cost effective alternative to curtains as they use less fabric. Their crisp folds can offer a more modern and contemporary look to a room. You may like to enhance your blind by adding borders,beads or just leave it plain allowing for the fabric to express itself.

    Forth fabrics blinds are made to measure blinds to the highest standards. All our blinds are handmade at the forth fabrics workshop.

    We make and supply the following :
    - Austrian blinds
    - Lined& interlined Romans
    - Lined only roman blinds
    - Sheer privacy blind
    - Roller blinds

    These are measured and fitted by Sheena's professional fitter who will ensure that they are fitted correctly.

Testimonials back

“We have been using the services of Sheena at Forth Fabrics for several years now, during which time she has made 6 pairs of curtains, 2 blinds, 1 duvet cover and a numerous amount of cushions for us. We are absolutely delighted with our most recent pair of curtains as, yet again, the high standard and superb quality is second to none. Add to this the friendly nature and eagerness to advise, we can’t recommend Forth Fabrics highly enough.”
Morag, Fairmilehead

“When we moved in to our new house in 2000 i was very pregnant with twins and wanted to get my house in order as quickly and painlessly as i could - Sheena made this happen ! She created all the curtains for us offering a personal and professional service.

She offered a bespoke service - coming to the house and advising on colours , fabrics and designs that she felt would compliment both our house and our individual tastes.

We had a variety of different furnishings made form fully lined curtains, to roman blinds and basic window dressings.

Each item was individually researched and fabrics suggested where requested. The result was that we had exactly what we wanted in each room without any stress!

Having recently moved house again this year we have been again been delighted with the service received.

Sheena supplied us with a large range of materials and options for new curtains we wanted and was also able to refit and redesign many of our loved curtains from our previous house to compliment the new house. This has meant we have been able to keep many of our favourite materials and fit them to new windows and rooms as we wanted.

The curtains for the new house have again been created with the utmost care and attention to detail, down to the last stitch!

Advice and fitting of poles is the icing on the cake. All in all the hassle of finding materials, measuring fabrics, fittings poles and hanging the curtains is all taken care of and means it is a pleasure to have something created for us which is both individual and beautifully made.

I would highly recommend Sheena's work without hesitation. The whole service offered makes it a pleasure to have new window dressings made - whatever you desire!”
