We are very pleased with the pew cushions, and attach some photos, as requested. I am sorry that it was not possible to install them yourselves, but our flower arrangers were in the middle of decorating the church, with a lot of greenery and water around!
We are now wondering whether to finish off the rest of the pews, and would like an estimate for the following sizes, obviously in the same material (Tivoli Jade) and no piping....................
Photographs from customers always look better than ours! Perhaps our Kodak Brownie needs an update! Thank you for your kind words...............

We delivered to St Andrew's in Letcombe Regis, Nr Wantage, Oxon.
A picturesque thatched cottage village, with this lovely church in the centre.
Like St Joseph's at Cromer, they also chose Chancel Red.
Thursday 19th November
St Luke's in Kew chose our Textured Superweave Terracotta. The church has been subdivided into a community centre, so there was lot's of activity when our driver & wife arrived. A very welcoming group of helpers soon saw the new cushions in place. In fact the driver & mate afterwards spent a very
happy afternoon at Kew Gardens which was only half a mile away. The Parish Administrator being a member at Kew Gardens very kindly presented the driver with Day Tickets, saving him & his wife a small fortune.
Wednesday 18th November
Sheringham in Cromer has the beautiful St Joseph's Church. It is the only listed building in the town.
Here they chose our Chancel Red, like St James in Poole. The Stations of the Cross were all brought by car from Italy, avoiding Nazis attention on the way!

Wednesday 14th October
We delivered to RAF Alconbury, Cambridgeshire. The base chapel is used by USA Airmen and they chose our Ravello Navy. It was an exciting trp for our driver. He saw a fighter jet at the entrance and needed a security pass to enter. Luckily he has a good past record.

Pictured above our Salamander Navy/Caret, at Bignor. The ladder in the church was being used to fix up lighting for the concert. Our driver asked us if he could stay for the concert. A negative response was our decision!

Thursday 16th July
A trip from Somerset to Poole found St James Parish Church to be all that has been written about it. A fantastic church. We supplied the main body of the church with our new plain red fabric. It looked very good and was especially comfy. The church chose 2.25 inches thick foam for extra comfort and plump appearance.
The pictures below are from our mobile phone and don't do the church or the covers true justice.
There is a chance of us quoting for the side pews, if we get the job we'll take the camera next time! We got a lovely approval letter from Mr Scott. You might like to see it. Look for August letters in Customers' Comments
Thursday 16th July

Saturday 21st March
The first day of Spring saw our white van man down by the seaside on a beautiful Spring morning.
St Andrew's Church in Hove ordered our Ravello Navy Blue 2 inches thick without piping. A beautiful rich blue, befitting for the Patron saint of Scotland. St Andrew's is locally known as "the church by the sea". The picture below shows why! The sixty pew cushions were unloaded in almost 60 seconds! A strong man team greeted our weak white van man! Message already in on Tuesday 24th from Mr Spence at St Andrew's. ( Re the new cushions) "
yes, they do look good on your website, and the cushions are already receiving so many compliments!"
White van outside St Andrew's, the sea is there just above the van! (Picture taken by our driver) All the rest of the pictures (brilliant they are) came by email from the church.
Friday 20th March
Delivery to Tabernacle Baptist Church, Wolverhampton.
The pews here are unusually and beautifully curved. The solution for cushions was to have individual smaller cushions, thus overcoming the difficulty of making patterns for all of the different curves. 2 inch thick foam in our Manhatten Chenille Navy without piping, the cushions go so well with the carpet. The greeting party were delighted with the new cushions.
Spring Daffs make a welcoming entrance to the Church.
Thursday 12th March
Delivery to Muiravonside Church in Falkirk. We were greeted by a working group of helpful unloaders for this big order.

Monday 2nd February
The worst snowfall for nearly 20 years saw our intrepid white van crew battle their way to Tonbridge. The images below show it was all worth while!
The pictures above are from the Tonbridge Parish. St Peter and St Paul church is one of our biggest orders for church pews.The beautiful Textured Superweave, Rich Terracotta blends so well with the timber of the pews. The helpful greeting party were pleased with the new cushions and the vicar also said that he liked them.We got this email from the church on 12th Feb. Thank you again for a job well done.
We have had many compliments from the congregation and all are delighted with the new comfort you have supplied. Everyone was impressed that you managed to beat the weather and deliver the cushions in such difficult driving conditions and I was relieved that all the measurements worked out OK. I can stop worrying now!
Best wishes and I hope all goes well for you in the future.
Our Paris Check Aubergine fabric seen above on our very own church pew.
Saturday 24th January we delivered to Harmby Methodist Chapel in the beautiful North Yorkshire Dales. The fabric is Ravello Navy and was chosen without piping.
The images below show the pews, the altar and the outside.
We got an email from the church on the Monday after delivery.
The cushions are very comfortable and everyone liked them. The visiting preacher remarked on them when he came in and his sermon began about a preacher who used to preach such boring sermons that he was told to spice them up and not use so many platitudes. He then went on to say that he hoped his sermon kept us awake on our comfortable seats. It was a really good service, held in a warm and comfortable place and everyone came out of chapel happy.
Thanks for all your help, God bless, Jennifer
Saturday 17th January, Saw us delivering to the beautiful St Curig's church very close to Cardiff airport.
The images below were taken on a mobile phone and don't give justice to the quality. The fabric is our popular Textured superweave Rich Terracotta. See better image for the quality, lower image was taken on a different pew, not at St Curig's.
We got a note from the church warden soon after the delivery.
The congregation were delighted on Sunday morning when they saw the new pew runners. They said it was the most comfortable service they had ever attended! Payment is on the way. Is there a possibility of purchasing a metre of the fabric to cover 2 chairs which are in the sanctuary? It would really finish it off. As a PCC we would be glad to recommend your products and would commend you on your customer service. On behalf of the parish of Porthkerry and Rhoose a very big thank you.
Elizabeth Davies Church Warden
