This is why we do what we do

  • Katharine has done a number of projects for me including upholstering headboards and a sofa as well as making roman blinds. Always a high standard of work, friendly service and good advice.”

  • For far too long I put up with my beige sofas.  They were in very good condition but I wanted and needed colour and now I have two amazing sofas beautifully upholstered by Katharine Ellen Arnkels-Webb, Cloth Works in Halesworth.  Right from the start I found her to be totally professional and extremely helpful.”

  • Katharine has been an absolute godsend for us. After a devastating house fire we had to replace all our soft furnishings – a project which would have been incredibly daunting without her help. She was endlessly patient with our slow decision-making and even though we weren’t always sure ourselves, she somehow understood exactly what we wanted. Interior decor has always been well outside my comfort zone but Katharine has made it all so enjoyable and the immaculate, professional results speak for themselves. She also employs first-class fitters (when she isn’t doing the fitting herself), all of whom have been a pleasure to have in the house. We’re thrilled with absolutely everything she’s done for us so far – and there’s more in the pipeline. I couldn’t recommend Katharine more highly.”

  • These are beautiful curtains and blinds! Katharine has made all the curtains and blinds in my new house in Suffolk and in my flat in London. She is meticulously professional at every stage of the process, from discussing suitable fabric to the final installation. I have used several different makers in the past but now would NEVER use anyone else. The finish is immaculate. She has the highest standards; some of the fabric we ordered was faulty and she ensured we were sent replacements. I have found her to be incredibly helpful and pleasant – you can rely on her expertise!”

  • It is a pleasure to work with Katharine and we have worked with her for several years at Adnams. Her understanding of colour coupled with an extensive knowledge of quality fabrics makes her a real asset to our team. She has helped create some exciting room schemes at several of our pubs and hotels. Her upholstery is always excellent quality and we are confident she will do a great job. She has created a range of curtains, cushions, chairs and headboards for us.”

  • Katherine has worked with us on our home and on a large holiday house and we would heartily recommend her and her company.
    It’s easy to form a good working relationship with Katharine. She is good to talk to, sympathetic to your needs and has the knack of quickly understanding the styles you prefer. You’re kept up to date with progress and helped with adjustments after fitting.
    Cloth Works has a huge range of fabrics available and Katharine will always search out different products she thinks might interest you. Our curtains and Roman blinds are very attractive and beautifully made. Katharine is positive and creative. We thoroughly enjoyed working with her and are delighted with the results.”
