Learn how to Sew Curtains

Curtains can be very expensive to order, so why don’t you learn how to make them yourself?  You will learn how to make pencil pleat fully lined curtains.

You will see how to measure the window correctly, square off the fabric, add the lining and attach the header tape, as well as lots of tips and tricks.


You will make a sample curtain in this class to take away with you.  All techniques will be detailed in hand-outs with step by step instructions for you to refer back to with the aim that you will be able to make your first pair of curtains at home with confidence!  Please bring along a sewing machine with spare needle.  All other materials will be supplied.
