Northern CO Upholstery shop or Seamstress?

I need to have new curtains made for my 68 Globe trotter. I am looking for a recommendation for an Upholstery shop or seamstress/tailor that would do this kind of work in Northern Colorado (Fort Collins/Loveland area). The Upholstery shops I've talked to aren't interested in doing curtains and places that specialize in curtains are only interested in using their standard fabrics and materials.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks,

Wish I could help with a recommendation, but haven't lived in CO for many years. My Gma used to have an upholstery shop in Eaton. So I come by my DIY gene honestly. Our trailer came with some of the original curtains, nice heavy lined ones worth saving. I made them another color, with a non-traditional method. The rest of the windows have new blinds I made. Sort of a modified Roman Blind. They use basic sewing skills, an iron and a few tools. There is a thread somewhere around here called "Low-tech Blinds". You can check them out there if interested.
