Read what our customers have to say about us


I am enjoying working with Liz. Liz is very patient and interested in making sure we end up with a look we're completely happy with. Sometimes, I am ready to order right away, and sometimes I need more time or to consider more fabrics. Either way, we're making progress! Liz has a ton of flexible fabric and design options, and she can custom design with ease as well. If she doesn't have something, she will find it.

I have known Liz Hawkes personally for many years. She is a very creative person and quite practical. I moved into a large house a few years ago. This year I was finally ready for window treatments. There was no doubt in my mind who I would have make them if I could. My issue was, I live in Alabama and she lives in Massachusetts. But with a few frequent miles at my disposal, my drapery consultant flew to Alabama. We went on a intense two day fabric hunt and picked out fabrics I liked. She came with a design program that could show me what my new curtains would look like with any fabric installed in my house. Her measurements were carefully calculated with fabric design in mind so I would not waste fabric.

So far two rooms have been completed and I love them. Because of our geography my husband did the installing and Liz sent him great instructions. The workman ship is beautiful. The curtains are a real reflection of what I like. Liz was very good at letting me decide what I wanted and did not try to influence me to go one way or another. Or if she did I was too dense to get it ;-)

Good workmanship , complete service and integrity. You will not regret selecting "Windows by Liz"

We had been thinking of replacing our Draperies for several years, but each time we looked at what was available at a retail store, or even using store’s so call custom services we were disappointed in the quality, and limited selections offered. We were fortunate to connect with Windows by Liz and order exactly what we wanted, without having to compromise on the quality and details we wanted and at a very reasonable cost. If you are thinking of new window treatments, you will be making the right choice going to Windows by Liz.

Windows by Liz was recommended by a friend. Liz presented us with many choices of quality fabrics to recover cushions on the furniture for our screen porch. The result was a fresh and new look and we are very pleased with the finished product. Her work is high quality and very professional.

Following a bathroom remodeling, I needed a window treatment that would provide ample light or privacy, as needed. At the same time, because the window is a dominant visual element as you enter the room, the window treatment needed to make a strong decor statement and tie together the other design elements of the room. I had struck out with ready-made options! Liz recommended a Roman shade design to meet my needs and brought a series of fabric samples to my home over the next couple of weeks until we found just the perfect look. The final product looks beautiful and works smoothly. I couldn't be happier with the service Liz provides and would recommend her to anyone needing custom window treatments without hesitation!

Liz not only made beautiful living room curtains for me but when I recently moved she adjusted them perfectly. I am so happy a friend recommended Liz to me.

The work we've had done by Liz is meticulously sewed and put together exactly as we wanted it to be and if its not she makes sure it is what we want. The selection of fabrics to choose from is terrific.

Hi, Liz, The chair covers are perfect! Fabulous fit – look wonderful! Many many thanks!

-- Mary Jo

I don't remember why I started working with you Liz but I can tell you that there are several reason why I keep coming back. First, you are easy to get along with and just do what ever I (the client) may come up with. You can do any style or any fabric. You are super convenient - you come to the house to design and then install, easily and quickly. Everything you have done for us still looks as good today as it did when you installed it and finally you are willing to bring samples and suggestions to try to get a project completed.

When I first contacted Liz about making a custom window treatment for my bathroom I wasn't sure what to expect. I had never ordered a custom window treatment and thought that it would be out of my reach financially. I had recently renovated my bathroom and had searched high and low for that perfect window treatment at countless department stores. I was frustrated and decided to call Liz and find out what she might be able to do for me.

Liz arranged an appointment to come to my home and take a look at the the window that I needed help with. She made a great suggestion to have the cornice match the same curve as my vanity top. I asked if she could then cover the cornice with the same material as my store bought shower curtain and Liz happily accommodated that request. She also allowed me to go to her workshop and help design how the pattern would be laid out.

The end result was PERFECT!!! I now have a one of a kind window treatment that looks AMAZING and I was pleasantly surprised at how affordable it was!!!

I have since hired Liz to make window treatments for my kitchen and living room. I always get great service and the workmanship is impeccable. I couldn't be happier and I look forward to working with Liz again. Five windows down...thirteen to go!!!

We would certainly recommend Liz and Windows-By-Liz, and will most definitely use her services again. She was very accommodating, and allowed us to take our time while making decisions. She listened to what we had to say, and gave us plenty of choices, both for fabric, design, and trim. Her computer-generated photos of what the completed product would look like in our particular room were most helpful.. She was very prompt in delivering and installing the finished product, and we were very pleased with the process and end result.
