So we have had a run out to our favourite fabric and sewing shop, Mermaid Fabrics, in Catalkoy, to get everything chosen and ordered. The shop is an amazing, huge Aladdin's cave of all sorts of fabrics and trims and it is run by a Turkish Cypriot family who hail from London. There are a couple of senior ladies in charge who are just so helpful and know all there is to know about re-upholstery, curtain and blind making. As well as selling the fabric they have a workshop to make everything and it is a fraction of the price it would cost in the UK. Even with the falling pound.
They were their usual helpful selves and we had a great time choosing. They will send their van to pick up the chair and cushions on the 7th November after our last guests have departed and then about 10 days later we should get it all back again, recovered in spanky new fabric. Plus our new curtains of course. Can't wait to see that, so expect pictures. When we come back next May (probably) we'll update curtains and blinds in two bedrooms and also the kitchen and that will mean we've done the whole house in the last couple of years.
