After many years working for an airline, I decided to settle down and started as an apprentice in the soft furnishings industry. I qualified in City & Guilds Level 2 Curtain Making, Level 2 Soft Furnishings and Level 1 in Interior Design. I worked for 3 years at G & H Soft Furnishings and a further 16 months at John Lewis as a curtain estimator, visiting customers in their homes in Hertfordshire.
I then decided to focus on my own business working from home. I started on the dining room table doing work for family and friends. Sarah Speak Soft Furnishings was established in 2009 in Berkhamsted where I had a lot of referrals and repeat business. In March 2021 I returned to my home county of North Yorkshire where I plan to grow the business again.
