About Liz Hawkes, Owner of Windows by Liz

Liz, who hails from England, first discovered she had a talent for sewing as a young child when she created an entire wardrobe for her Barbie dolls using her Mumís hand cranked Singer machine and a fabric sample book! Over the years, she has progressed to full size dressmaking, earned a degree in Home Economics, and started making window treatments for friends and family. In 2005, the time was right for Liz to realize a dream and Windows by Liz was born.

Liz believes that the best tools, materials and techniques make the best finished product. As such, she has always embraced educational opportunities in the window treatment industry. She is an active member of the Window Coverings Association of America and is a past board member of the local chapter. In 2006 Liz completed a course of study and earned her Certified Window Treatment Workroom status. She regularly attends conferences, classes and seminars and is an alumnus of the Custom Home Furnishings Academy. In 2010, Liz was a winner in the CHF alumni showcase and her work was displayed at the Vision Conference in Las Vegas and published in Design and Drapery Pro magazine.

Over the years, Liz has amassed a great collection of equipment and tools. Her workroom, which grows a little each year, now fills much of the lower level of her home. She has a large library of fabric, hardware and trim sample books and has built relationships with trusted vendors to bring you the best products available.

Liz is looking forward to hearing about your curtain project. Call her at 978 456 8358.
