I got mine made up at Manor if you have one near you. It was quite amusing, my German was non-existent and I was explaining in broken french to one assistant who then translated for another into German. Mark up a little diagram on paper and you should be allright. Mine came out perfect.

No idea on relative value for money though, I was happy I managed to order curtains.

Re: Curtains made in Zug?

There are a few existing threads with some good information about where to find ready-made curtains or get custom-done ones. Here's a particuarly helpful one:

http://www.englishforum.ch/sale-want...ns-drapes.html

One place not mentioned on that thread is Moebel Pfister. They will come to your house for the measurements and deliver the curtains when they've been sewn, a service which probably costs more that department stores like Coop or Manor.

As for English, why don't you just give it a try? So many people in Zurich seem to speak at least passable English, and if you ask for help I'm sure people will try.

OK. Thanks for this. I will try Manor and then Intereo if necessary. I don't mind trying, on the whole I am always game..just sometimes it is nice to have an easy option!

Re: Curtains made in Zug?

I've bought premade curtains at Micasa. Not too bad for the price. They are located in Zugerland.

I've also bought them in Neuaegeri and for 2 small windows it cost me a small fortune- 500 fr which 80fr per curtain was for sewing. Lesson learned real quick!
