ON SAFETY: As of November 2, 2011 our shades are in compliance with the Window Coverings Safety Standards with the use of an encased cord. The case is sewn into the shade which does not allow the cord to be pulled away from the shade. Read more about it on our November 2nd post on our facebook page where you will find pictures of the new casing and also how the shades look with this alteraion.

ON OUR CORDLESS FUNCTION: Our cordless function is designed to be affordable and functional. There will be brass rings sewn down the back of your shade at about every ten inches. You will be provided with hooks to insert through the brass rings at whatever height you want your shade raised to. This is a safety feature we offer, but our cording system is in compliance with window covering safety regulations.

ON FABRIC: There are appropraite and innapropriate fabrics for window treatments. Please include a link to your fabric selection so we may approve it. I have accepted light weight materials in the past because the buyer had their "heart set on it." I made it clear the problems that come with light weight fabrics, but they insisted. And as a result their treatments ended up exactly as I had warned and I was unfairly given bad feed back as a result. Since I cannot risk my good name anymore I will no longer be doing treatments with light weight materials. If you "heart is set" on a fabric that is light weight I would invite you to look at other etsy vendors who might willing to take on the project.

ON BLACKOUT LINING: Our blackout liner is white, ivory or ecru. We match it to your fabric upon arrival. There is an insulating material in the lining that is black. When the blackout is sewn with the sewing machine the needle will remove the black insulating material. This means that when light is coming through the window, the holes the sewing needle created in top stitching will not be blacked out and the seam will be visible. This seam s only visible in direct light. Additionally, the blackout can be removed by the needle and deposited on the fabric.

FABRIC RECCOMENDATIONS: I recommend canvas, duck, medium weight linens, medium weight cottons, etc. Please include a link to your desired fabric or a description. If you would like help selecting a fabric I am happy to help!

FABRIC SITES: Please check out the right collumn of our blog windowsbymelissa.blogspot.com under "Buy Fabric For Your Custom Window Treatments" for fabric selections.

About

Keeping Mothers Home With Their Children

Melissa here! I started this business as a way to make extra income for my family while staying at home with my young children. After developing a solid reputation of quality craftsmanship, beautiful products and outstanding customer service, business boomed and I decided to share! I created a team of talented seamstresses. I asked friends and family to connect me with talented seamstresses that they knew. I put them through a trial period and then trained them on our patterns. The ideal candidate was to be a stay at home mom. Our mission is to provide moms with work so they don't have to leave their homes to find work. This effort is meant to keep moms at home with their young children where they belong. I believe in a strong family unit and believe moms are a significant role in that. We have a wonderful talented team of women who care about what they do and have a strong desire to provide our clients with something they can enjoy in their homes for many years.

Shop policies

Last updated on July 2, 2015
As these are custom orders and unique to your windows there is a no refund/no return policy except for valid defects. Any defect must be reported to me within two weeks after receipt of the completed order by the purchaser. The order may be returned for alterations at owners expense. If items need alteration I must be notified within two weeks of the date of arrival and they must be shipped back for alterations within three weeks of the time of receipt.

SAFETY: Our cording system is in compliance with window covering safety regulations. Our cord is covered in a cord shroud that is sewn to the back of the shade preventing it from being able to be pulled away from the shade and formed into a dangerous loop. Additionally, we use a cord locking mechanism. Additionally, the cord falls behind the shade where it is out of sight.

CORDLESS FUNCTION: Our cordless function is designed to be affordable and functional. There will be brass rings sewn down the back of your shade at about every ten inches. You will be provided with hooks to insert through the brass rings at whatever height you want your shade raised to. This is a safety feature we offer, but our cording system is in compliance with window covering safety regulations.


HOW TO MEASURE YOUR WINDOWS: http://www.youtube.com/user/windowsbymelissa

DISCLAIMER: All treatments will be received within one inch of the desired measurements.

ROMAN SHADES: As Roman Shades are a flat panel, they are difficult to get exact and both width and length will be within one inch of desired measurements, if not exact.

SWAGS AND JABBOTS: Width will be the measurement given by the purchaser
while lengths may vary.

ALL OTHERS: All other shades will be received within one inch of desired length, if not exact.
In the event a client cancels an order, WTBM will refund the purchase price of the order less the costs incurred or reasonably anticipated to be incurred by WTBM at the time of the cancellation for supplies, shipping, and contract labor.

FABRIC YARDAGE: Once fabric yardage has been cut an order can not be canceled or returned for a refund.

ALL quotes are based on the assumption that client purchased a 54" wide home decor fabric. Window Treatments by Melissa will not refund the cost of materials purchased for an order if a 45" quilters cotton has been purchased and the order cannot be completed. Client may find a 54" home decor fabric to be used in the place of the 45" quilters cotton should this mistake be made.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Money Order
  • Check
Payment
Paypal, personal check, debit and/or credit. Payment should be received upon service request as we need to acquire the materials to make your product.

No Refunds if a cancellation occurs as I incur the debt of purchasing the materials unique to your window size.
Shipping
USPS 2-day priority. Can upgrade for additional cost.

Purchasers are responsible for any and all duties, taxes, and/or customs charges that may be incurred.
Refunds and Exchanges
As these are custom orders and unique to your windows there is a no refund/no return policy. They may be returned for alterations at owners expense.

FABRIC YARDAGE: Once fabric yardage has been cut an order can not be canceled or returned for a refund.

ON BLACKOUT: Blackout liner can be used at customer's request. We carry it in white, ivory and ecru. The liner has an inner layer of insulation that is sometimes pulled out by the needle and deposited on the fabric. This cannot be removed and leaves small pin sized black marks on the fabric. Additionally, it removes the blackout from the liner and small pin sized holes are made where the needle sews that light can be seen through.

EXPEDITED ORDERS: If an expedited order ship date cannot be met due in fault to WTbM, 50% of the expedited fee of the item or items that do not ship by agreed date will be refunded. This would be in the case of a mistake in construction and fabrication or personal issue of the creator of the item that prevents the order from shipping on agreed date. 50% will be refunded as the item will still be made top priority upon receipt of the replacement fabrication items or upon return of the fabricator of the shades. Situations that are not the fault of WTbM are as follows, but not limited to, customer shipping out fabric later than agreed, fabric being held in shipping process or fabric manufacturer delivery time.

In the event a client cancels an order, WTBM will refund the purchase price of the order less the costs incurred or reasonably anticipated to be incurred by WTBM at the time of the cancellation for supplies, shipping, and contract labor.

Items requiring alteration due to customer negligence will be repaired at owners expense. Negligence includes, but is not limited to, improper mounting, hanging, removal of any stitching, removal of hem, or removal of any other product intended to make the product function. These products include, but are not limited to, eye hooks, cord locks, brass rings, cording or dowels.
Additional policies and FAQs
ALL Custom orders!

PLEASE DO NOT SELECT A LIGHT WEIGHT QUILTERS COTTON. This fabric is not appropriate for window treatments. Please stick to home decor fabrics.
