Tina turned a hobby into a thriving business.
Tina Leese, from New Arley, had been making curtains for family and friends for years when suddenly she found herself redundant and looking for work.
After a suggestion from her husband, Dale, to advertise her handmade curtain service, the cottage industry simply took off.
Tina has since received commissions from village halls, schools, and hotels, and for complete house makeovers - including curtains and soft furnishings for 15 rooms in a listed rectory in Castle Bromwich.
Tina, who has opened the Curtain Workshop, said: "I can't believe that what started as a hobby has ended up with me opening my own shop. I love every aspect of the job, from the design and creation to finally seeing the whole concept in situ."
CREATIVE IDEA... Tina Leese opens her Curtain Workshop at Hatton Shopping Village.
