May i know whether you did full length curtain for your whole house..
I went to Jimmy Textile over the weekend and gotten the following quotation for about $1,200.. do u gals think that it is reasonable?
- Vertical blind (full height)for living room (4 std HDB window)
- Vertical blind (NOT full height) for common corridor bedroom (3 windows)
- roman blinds for another 2 bedrooms.. (4 windows and 3 windows respectively.)
How can i know whether the material given is good.. e.g. where are the material from etc..? Really know nothing about curtain .. heheh
i onli did full length for living room (3 panels)
the rest are 3/4 length -- dining, 3 bedroom
talk to lucas, u prob can negotiate prices a little. for mine they gave me a very very wide selection of material to choose from. so i was spoilt for choice. have to comments that the workmanship is good.
i find ur quote reasonable, cos i think roman n vertical blinds usually more ex than the normal type.
u can always call up a few to compare prices
u can ask Lucas (from jimmy textile) what kind of material he giving u...n how much these material cost per metre. (mine was ard $18 per metre type...) but again i did the normal tab top curtains so type of material might differ from your
i got from Jimmy Textiles already, didnt visit The Golden Leaf. Lucas served me and i think he was okay. his guys wil install the curtains on this sun. i can update you the workmanship later. cross my fingers now first..hee..
anyway, i think there are 2 more lady staff there. perhaps you can look for them if you dont like lucas's attitude? personally, i think he is okay. hope this helps.
thanks for ur prompt reply. I tot Lucas was quite nice the first time i went down. but subsequently his attitude change leh. I wonder is it coz i keep calling him up n change this n that. I asked for wallpaper quotation from him as well.. but waited for more then 1 mth, called afew times also cant get the quotation. I heard alot of pp like Lucas, wonder is it i too troublesome, so he fed up with me haha
i have day and nite (organza type) for living room and roller blind for bedrooms. their installation guys are friendly too...good luck..
leigoss, suggest u visit their shop..they will show u many samples..tell them ur color preference then they might be able to make some good recommendations and also save u the time from browsing thr the vast no. of samples they have..
Hi, I am new to this forum. I have heard that there are private seamstresses who would sew and make entire sets of curtains for a competitive price. They would come up to your house and do all the measurements and at the same time let you choose the cloth samples. Does anyone here know any contacts?
I am also toying with the option of going into JB to get my curtains done up but I have no contacts too.
Has anyone here did the above two? Thanks! I have read quite a bit abt Jimmy Textiles here. Is he that good?
i used jimmy textile too. Lucas served me and i tot he was rather friendly. not the extreme giordano-friendly type but nice enuff. he is more like the quite type hence maybe he may not seem enthusiastic enuff sometimes...
workmanship is good and they delive on time. eveything from measurment to installation is as per scheduled - no delays.
So i m pleased with them. I got jimmy textile's contact from tis forum so i m continuing to share the info hee
