"Elizabeth, from Stitch Above The Rest, LLC did the window treatments in my breakfast room, great room, dining room and my daughter's room in my brand new home. She also reupholstered 2 antique chairs for me. She did an outstanding job. The window treatments are beautiful and Elizabeth was so easy to work with. She is a professional who truly knows her job and knows what will work and won't work in a house. She understood exactly what I wanted and worked to create that look. I could not be more pleased. Great Job!!!"
– D. Cooke, Marietta, GA


"I am very happy with the custom made king-size bedspread, shams, and pillows Elizabeth designed and made for me and my husband's master bedroom. By listening carefully to us and asking the right questions, we received exactly what we were looking for. The colors and fabrics she chose to match cornices we already had at our windows were just right. We love the new look of our room. I highly recommend Elizabeth and plan on hiring her again."
– N. Rivers, Kennesaw, GA


"Elizabeth from Stitch Above the Rest made roman shades and valances for 11 windows in my basement. She also made six coordinating pillows. I could not be any happier with the finished product. When I first met with Elizabeth, I already had some fabric choices and a basic design for the valances in mind. She was quickly able to add to my ideas and came up with a plan I was very excited about. She was very knowledgeable on what would work and what would not work. Elizabeth was easy to work with and kept me informed along the way. The roman shades she made for me work perfectly and look great. Each one of the eleven shades function exactly the same and the folds and slats line up precisely with each one. Everyone who steps into my basement for the first time immediately says, “Wow!” I know the custom window treatments and pillows really tie everything together. If you want perfectly constructed window coverings and pillows, you are in good hands with Stitch Above the Rest! I will definitely be using Elizabeth again for my next project."

"A stitch above the rest has done an AMAZING job for me over the years! From custom baby blankets for baby gifts...to my own baby's crib bedding, sheets, and valences for the nursery---her work is quality! She also made a custom upholstered fireplace seat to protect my little one from bumping her head on the sharp bricks. She is currently doing curtains and a window bench cushion and some custom pillows! Elizabeth at A Stitch Above the Rest is truly talented in her craft! Highly recommend!!!!"
– J. Falls, Woodstock, GA


"Elizabeth did a great job on the draperies for my living room. She was patient and helpful in my selection of fabric and style (especially since I knew I wanted a change but wasn't exactly sure what that would look like). The whole process went so well, even the installation was quick and painless. Most importantly, I love the new draperies! They have totally updated and upgraded the room. I would definitely use Elizabeth again for future projects."
– D. Adams, Lake Allatoona, Canton, GA


"Elizabeth is such a gem!  Not only does she make a quality product, she is such a pleasure to work with.  She is dedicated to customer service and is an excellent communicator.  You can tell she takes great pride in her work and pays close attention to the small details.  My curtains, roman shades, and pillows turned out amazing! Can't wait to do another room with Elizabeth in the future!"
– Cathy Zedd, Druid Hills, Atlanta, GA


"Elizabeth is amazing. She came to my house and helped me to decide the best window treatment and fabric for my decor. The valances she made for my living room and dining room are beautiful! Then she made 3 lovely pillows from the leftover fabric! I enjoyed working with her so much, and I am sure I will use her again."
– Cheryl Moates, Marietta, GA


"I have used Stitch Above The Rest for several different projects from pillows to ottomans to table runners. Elizabeth's attention to detail and quality are impeccable and she always has a fast turnaround time. I would highly recommend a Stitch Above The Rest! "
– Gabriela Eisenhart, Atlanta, GA


"Elizabeth has worked on several projects in our home and we have been beyond satisfied! She did such a wonderful job and we receive so many compliments from everyone who walks in our home. The window treatments and decorative pillows brought our home together and has made it complete. Not to mention our daughter's nursery, which is absolutely stunning. Not only is her work superior, she is a joy to work with. She made the process easy and fun. I would highly recommend Stitch above the Rest! "
– Chason Garcia, Marietta, GA


"I contacted Elizabeth to see if she could create a window treatment similar to ones in a photograph and found her to be very willing to tackle what I considered to be a difficult undertaking. She delivered and installed the order on time and it was everything that I had envisioned. Her work is beautiful. Elizabeth is very creative, professional and reasonable. I highly recommend her and will certainly use her in the future. "
– Bobbie Hathaway, Atlanta, GA


"I looked at Calico Corners and Stitch Above The Rest. The quality of work was well-matched w/ both merchants but the attention you get w/ Elizabeth, the quick turn-around and the price were all significantly better. I can't say she was the least expensive merchant I've looked at but when you're putting a piece of heirloom furniture in someone's hands, you don't always want to go with the cheapest provider. Her attention to detail is impeccable and her workroom --- wow! I liked that the piece(s) stayed on site with her and weren't moved to an offsite location to have the work done. And I got my chairs back in less than 2 weeks. Beautiful. I'll be using her for drapes in my dining room, upholstery work on my couch in my family room and some projects when the kids start moving rooms!! "
– Nancy Lochman, Roswell, GA


"Elizabeth Gerdes spent 5 hours over at my home repairing and sprucing up our two couches. Not only did she do a fantastic job but she took extra measures to ensure the couches stay beautiful for as long as possible! If you have ANY needs for drapes, pillows, or reupholstery, call Elizabeth at Stitch Above The Rest! You won't believe the difference she can make!!!!! Thank you for giving me back a living room to be proud of again Elizabeth. You Rock! "
– Kathy Thompson, Woodstock, GA


"Elizabeth's work is absolutely perfect in every way! I love her attention to detail and that she worked with me every step of the way to make sure I was completely satisfied! I will go to Elizabeth for all of my future needs. "
– Kala Bennett, Adel, GA


"I highly recommend Elizabeth for all your custom drapery, bed linens, and more! She made five pairs of custom draperies for me; they are beautiful and well-crafted. We even designed a pair together and had so much fun! She is super to work with, and always drove out of her way to meet with me and bring my items. I look forward to working with her again. "
– Melissa Krost, Atlanta, GA

"Elizabeth can turn the ordinary into the extraordinary! She has made us beautiful drapes, cushions, valances, tableskirts, and pillows. She really takes time to think of the best way to show off the fabric, and has some very creative ideas that make each project extra special. The goblet pleated drapes for my granddaughter's room are so beautiful...she was able to put a castle in each pleat. They are just fabulous! She listens to you, her attention to detail is amazing, and she produces a quick turnaround. Elizabeth is just a lovely young woman to work with...I'm hooked!"
-JJ Carter, Marietta, GA


"Because of her work at Rocky Mount Elementary School, I had her make curtains for my dining room and replace the curtains in my den area. Both jobs were high quality! She is good at collecting material samples that compliment one another. She listened carefully to the effect I was trying to create. AND...she was so patient with me when I couldn't make up my mind. She wants to ensure that her customers are 100% satisfied with the decisions and the workmanship! She succeeded! "
-Beth Peery, Marietta, GA


"I enjoyed working with Elizabeth. I chose her because I saw the great work she had done at Rocky Mount Elementary. She made me feel at ease by providing options and then taking care of the fabric shopping. We went over the fabric choices, and then she made the most beautiful custom drapes and pillows for me. While I can certainly sew, I could not have done such a fabulous job myself, and I am very pleased with the results. We have had a lot of great comments on the decor. I highly recommend her! "
-Bonnie Garrett, Marietta, GA


"Wow! I'm really enjoying the bedskirt and pillows. It's beautiful. Thank You so much. "
-Christel G., Atlanta, GA

-Kristi C., Blacksbur, SC


"STARS AND STRIPES FOREVER! What a piece of art! This beautiful quilt made by Elizabeth Gerdes pays tribute to the Grand Old Flag with student's original flag art. Thank you for generously donating your time and talents to support my daughter's school. This priceless keepsake received rave reviews at the Auction (and raised $1600). It was such a pleasure to work with you. "
-Linda M., Roswell, GA
