Received my first order from Ahna this week. A beautiful valance for my teenage daughter's room. Process from start to finish was super easy and Ahna was just lovely to work with. She even handled the challenge of working with the rhinestone fabric we sent. We were very restricted with the space we had to work with for the valance and this worked out beautifully, and very easy to mount. Really looking forward to ordering more beautiful items from Ahna.

New arch top style box pleat with contrast fabric bottom edge. It's a new twist on an old classic!
This customer purchased a king size Pottery Barn duvet to have me make 4 box pleat valances to match her bedding. Beautiful bedroom decor!

Give your furnishings a facelift.

I never dreamed I would be doing something so satisfying and creative as a job. I thought I would be teaching middle school Language Arts for 25+ years. My mother-in-law likes to remind me that when I married my husband and started my career as a teacher, I informed her, " I don't sew, don't cook, and have no desire of doing either." Over fifteen years later, I have had to eat those words (no pun intended). I've grown to be a decent cook and my occupation revolves around sewing daily. And I love it!!
After my daughter was born, I started sewing every single day. It became an outlet for my creativity after leaving the classroom behind to stay home with my daughter full time. Sewing clothing for her or things for our home, I was sewing anything I could get my hands on during her nap times.
Soon, a friend of mine suggested I start my own business sewing home decor items after completing a small project for her. Not long after, I decided to open an Etsy shop. I felt there was a void in the Etsy market for those buyers who liked to select their own fabrics. My listings and offerings revolve around helping customers achieve a designer look using fabrics that inspire them. Here, you won't find a handful of fabrics to choose from. The fabric world is yours to explore! I want customers to realize that the process is "Easier Than I Thought" to get quality custom home decor to suit their lifestyle.
When customers send me pictures of finished installations from all over the country, I feel an indescribable sense of pride and accomplishment for all my hard work. I am at my machine daily creating and designing. It's what makes me happy. Let me make something for you and your home!
