    Best Etsy purchase ever! The process was easy and I got the valance within the given time frame. I could not be happier with the results. I’m tempted to do this to all my windows now lol

    These valances were perfection. As a person who sews, I was please to see that all three valances had the diamond pattern exactly the same so that they would look perfect when seen together. I am a repeat customer.

    Ahna was a pleasure to do business with. The fabric I chose was not that easy to work with but Ahna made sure I was aware of changes needed to be made in order to be able to produce a product that would meet my expectations. I am very happy.

    FABULOUS...! I can't describe how great my experience with Ahna was from start to finish. She was so professional, helpful, informative and a quick to respond. She helped me with fabric choice, yardage, sizing and more. The finished project is perfect. I saved over 75% from what my local drapery stores quoted me. I would recommend her to anyone. Thank you Ahna at 'Easier Than I Thought'

On Etsy since 2011

Give your furnishings a facelift.

I never dreamed I would be doing something so satisfying and creative as a career. 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 or cook, and I have no desire of doing either." Over fifteen years later, 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 her full time. I sewed furiously during every naptime. 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 instead of choosing from a handful of stock fabrics and pre-made items. My listings revolve around helping customers achieve a designer look using fabrics that inspire them.
As a business owner who offers a custom product, quality construction and fabrication is important to me. My 500 square foot in-home studio equipped with industrial machines and filled with professional materials is a testament to this. All of my products are made to the guidelines established by the Window Covering Association of America. I use quality drapery linings and carefully consider pattern placement for all fabrics used in custom orders. My dedication to continued education keeps me well versed in new techniques. This helps me design new window treatments that are on trend and installation friendly. It is my goal that you can confidently say ordering custom window treatments through me is, “easier than I thought.”
