On this course you will also learn how to:
- Measure your windows accurately
- Calculate the amount of fabric required
- Cut out and align those pattern repeats
- Learn about different heading tapes
- Choose suitable linings and interlinings
- Pattern match with confidence
- How to hang and dress your curtains.
- Practice different machine and hand sewing techniques
All materials are included for the making of the curtain samples etc on this course.
You will need to bring along your sewing machine and basic sewing kit for this course.
If you don’t have a sewing machine then I will gladly lend you one of mine for the day, just let me know in advance.
