Hole in the Wall Curtains News
Throughout the past year Hole in the Wall Curtains (Walsall) have been lucky enough to play a part in an extensive refurbishment programme that has taken place at Rodbaston Hall, in Penkridge, Staffordshire
For some, the fast approaching Autumn/Winter of 2012 is a depressing thought… However, here at Hole in the Wall Curtains the dark, cold and frosty nights signify the start of a very exciting time!
Why, well here’s the reason…
Having spent the final few months of the summer developing, and subsequently ordering, a brand new range of products to reflect the upcoming trends of the Autumn/Winter 2012, the Hole in the Wall Team finally start to take delivery of the fresh new designs!
Now, we don’t want to come across as show offs, but we were so pleased to receive this lovely thank you message recently that we just can’t resist sharing it with you…
In response to our much valued customer feedback, the Hole in the Wall Curtains Team have spent the past few months researching a brand new range to further enhance our haberdashery department, The Drapery,…

It’s amazing what can be achieved with time, skill, hard work and some imagination… Take a look how children from St Anne’s Catholic Primary School, Streetly, (with a bit of help from Mrs Acton) created a magnificent handmade banner celebrating the Olympics using fabrics (and other crafty bits) from the Hole in the Wall Curtains!

The challenge has been set… Clark and Clark, one of the fabric industry’s leading suppliers, are currently running a competition for the ‘Best Dressed Window’. So, not being one to turn down a challenge, we have decided to enter!
Once completed the window will be dressed with a flat pelmet, roman blind, curtains and tiebacks all of which will be custom made in our own onsite workroom. The coordinating fabrics used to create our ‘masterpiece’ will be taken from the Clark and Clark Maritime collection, here’s a little bit more about the range:
