    Hi all,

    I'm restoring the interior of an '82 Peugeot Tabbert motorhome, and the curtains are pretty much falling apart. I know zilch about fabrics and sewing and suchlike so... Can anyone recommend a good company for doing this? One where I can send the measurements (or even the old curtains to copy) for them to run up new ones with no fuss?

    I'm sure this question has been asked before but I'd like to know if anyone has recent experience. It's something that needs to be done but I just want to farm it out as anything that isn't oily or electric is beyond me.

    Cheers.

    Can't help with your curtain problem - but this reply will bring it back to the top of the page.

    Cheapest way is go to wilkinsons get large pair of lined curtains to the colour you want and then find a seamstress and ask her to make the curtains to fit your measurements works a treat.

    there must be a small independant business/shop locally to you who offer a sewing service.

    look in the yellow pages....we have three shops doing it.:thumb:
