Good evening Stephen

Just a quickie to let you know that the curtain pole has now been fitted.  It looks great and are delighted with it.  

Thank you so much for your help and advice.  It’s very rare but encouraging to find such excellent workmanship.

Best wishes,


Hi Stephen,

Earlier this year you made a 25mm pole for a curved bay window for me. It fitted perfectly and looks great, we’re really pleased with it.

Please could I order another two poles from you? Straight poles this time, both to the same spec:  


Many thanks,

Dear Stephen,

Thanks so much for sending off the new curtain pole – it arrived as planned midday Monday.  We had the pole fixed and new curtains up that afternoon.  We are really delighted with all the poles you provided, and would be very happy to recommend you to anyone.

Hi Stephen,
Hope you are well.
We have finally got all the curtain poles up that you made, and they are nearly all dressed with curtains now. We are delighted with the excellent quality of them and the way they perfectly suit the cottage. We would like to pop and see you with 2 more poles to order…

…Many thanks

Mark & Karen D.

Hi Stephen, you made a reasonably complicated pole for my bay back in March (it even made it into your blog)… just thought you’d like to see it in place! Need to pick the curtains now.

I’d say it fits the space perfectly, thanks for your ingenious idea with the angles and bends.

Best wishes


You are so kind Stephen. Thank you for delivering. It looks great. I will pass the word around if anyone needs curtain poles 🙂

We now require the following please:…

Best regards



Just to let you know that this arrived on Sat, and to say thanks for getting it out.

 It looks great, as usual!



Hi Stephen

I hope that you’re well. We’ve put the first bay window curtain poles that we ordered from you up and have curtains on one!

We are very happy with the poles we already have so please can we order 3 more? 2 are simple straight poles, 1 is for a 2 corner rectangular bay window…

HI Steve,

Had to write to thank you for the poles which are now up, looking good and fit perfectly to boot!  The  bay window pole is especially impressive considering the tricky shape… superb workmanship all round so thanks again for all your efforts.

Mike & Jane

Hi Stephen,

I meant to email to say thank you for the poles – they’re great.

So much so that I’d like to order some more for a client (not sure if I mentioned that I’m an interior designer?).

I’d like two Flared Ball poles in beeswax finish…  

…If you could get back to me with an invoice, I’ll pay it right away.

Many thanks.

Kind regards,



Just to say that the curtain poles look great — thank you. They’re not up yet but they are exactly what I was hoping for. So…

please could you do us some more???? …

…Thanks so much,


Thank you – we would like to go ahead with the order. We’re really pleased with the other poles you made for us last year…


Hi Stephen

Screws arrived today.  First pole up – looks great.

Many thanks


Hi Stephen

Just to let you know the pole is brilliant, really pleased with it. Husband managed to get it fixed over the front door and curtain hung just before the Beast from the East and storm Emma hit.

Thanks again


February 2018


Got my pole today. I’m so pleased with it. Thanks so much for your quality workmanship!


Dear Stephen,
Thank you so much for the curtain pole brackets which arrived today, you were so quick making them!
Much appreciated, and very nice they are too.

Kind Regards,


Hi Stephen

I have received the poles, very pleased!, we have an old victorian terrace  and so the brickwork is old, what length of screw would you recommend? to support the weight of the the poles any sage advice helpful



I would like to order a continuously curved curtain pole in 16mm, traditional black and with ball and collar finials.

The setting is below…

…By the way, I previous bought a similar pole from you (Stephen?) a couple of years ago. We were very pleased with it.

Many thanks,


Hi Stephen,

Many thanks for our previous curtain pole. It looks great.

Would we be able to order another?…


January 2018… Happy New Year!!


Could you let me know what you would charge for the following curtain pole…


P.S.  I bought a bay window pole from you a few months ago. It fits the bay perfectly and looks great.

Hello Stephen

You made a lovely bay window pole for us a couple of years ago, we have since moved and would like to replace all the old poles in our new house with some more of your poles.

If possible, we would like to place an order for 8 pole sets of the following lengths:…



Hi Stephen

Hope you’re well.

One more small order for now, though there will be several more over the coming months, once building work is completed on our house and a new build we are buying as a holiday rental! I wouldn’t go anywhere else for curtain poles…


Hi Stephen,

Just wanted to say how pleased we are with the poles you recently made for us which are now all wonderfully in place. They look lovely and are so stylish. We will be in touch for more soon!

thank you so much.


…we’re sincerely delighted with how fantastic the rails look! Alongside our Art Deco lighting, and the old cast radiators we had restored, they’ve fitted in perfectly. 


Many thanks,


Afternoon, Steven.

The poles are all up now.  And they really do look excellent.

The bay window pole went in without any problems.  Pretty impressive!



Hi Stephen,

Two things, firstly I ordered two double poles a good few months ago now and they look just as I had imagined hung on our wall, so thank you very much for the work you put in to them, I’ll definitely be recommending you if anyone mentions they are on the hunt for curtain poles!

Secondly, because they did look so good I would like to order another curtain pole for another room, this time just a single curtain pole:

1 x Curtain pole

Overall length: 1560mm

Finials: Stopper

Finish: Beeswax

Looking forward to hearing back from you.



Hi Stephen,

I trust you had a good Christmas.

The curtain rail arrived and has been fitted. We are delighted with it but think we will probably need matching holdbacks. What dimensions are the holdbacks you advertise?
