Catha­rina is open­ing up the cur­tains

❝Any­thing to do with win­dow dress­ing, we can do❞

Kyabram Free Press - - NEWS - By Michael Mat­tingly — Catha­rina Sud­holz

NOT that long ago, Catha­rina Sud­holz was trav­el­ling the coun­try show­ing off her cur­tains and blinds at com­pe­ti­tions around the na­tion.

Her cur­tain busi­ness in Melbourne was boom­ing and 28 ex­hi­bi­tions a year even took her to New Zealand on oc­ca­sions.

To say it was suc­cess­ful would be an un­der­state­ment.

But when she was se­verely in­jured and in a wheel­chair for 18 months, she was forced to step away.

Now five years, on Catha­rina has set­tled in Kyabram and is three years into her new busi­ness ven­ture, Catha­rina’s Vin­tage Stitches.

For the past three years Catha­rina’s shop has been of­fer­ing all sorts of prod­ucts and ser­vices, but she had never quite stepped back into the cur­tain game. Well now, she has.

“I’m re­ally ex­cited to get back into it,” she said.

“It’s quite re­ward­ing when you see some­one smil­ing at their own house and happy with what you have done.”

Catha­rina said she saw an op­por­tu­nity in the re­gion and she wants to grab it with both hands.

“Any­thing to do with win­dow dress­ing, we can do.

“It is some­thing we are adding on to the busi­ness, none of our old prod­ucts will suf­fer from it and I think we are ready to cope with the ex­tra work.”

Catha­rina said Vin­tage Stitches will of­fer a free mea­sure and quote for in­ter­ested cus­tomers.

“I value lis­ten­ing to the cus­tomer, I hear them out about what they want and of­fer some ad­vice here and there but it is about what they want,” she said.

“Be­fore mov­ing here I had been do­ing cur­tains for about 30 years, I am no stranger.”

Catha­rina’s Vin­tage Stitches is lo­cated at 141 Al­lan St and can be found on­line at cathari­nasv­in­
