I thoroughly enjoyed running the first of my Roman blind making workshops last Saturday. Four enthusiastic sewers arrived and set to work. They all made such lovely blinds (Becky & Kerry pictured below). For more images click here. I’ll be running more soon, so if you are interested, keep an eye open for dates coming up on my calendar.
Spring will soon be here and my thoughts are on redecorating my living room! This will include new curtains or blinds. That in mind, I thought I would share with you, my 2o years experience in soft furnishings! New for March & April this year – I will begin the first of my curtain and blind making workshops!
I spent the whole of last weekend busily preparing for the first of these, using a friend as a ‘guinea pig’ to ensure I could fit in all I could in a day’s workshop! I am still working on producing my little guidance booklet complete with hand drawn diagrams! This should all be ready in plenty of time for the first of these – curtain making which will be taking place on Saturday 16 March. Roman blind making will be in April – date yet to be confirmed.
Have a look at the workshop page of my website under ‘Which workshop is best for me?’ for full details. Contact me if you would like a booking form.
I have to confess I have a passion for tweed! The moment winter arrives I begin to make new bags for my shop from this versatile fabric which never dates. Hence the Harris tweed ipad bag I currently have in my shop! So this weekend I decided to make another tweed bag, in Scottish tweed wool – the one shown here – for my Etsy shop. Made from a lovely thick brown/khaki/ stone checked tweed with a splash of rich turquoise and a border edge of khaki linen.
Hope you all had a lovely Christmas and like me looking forward to a fun 2013!
I have planned dates for my January & February workshops. You will find these posted on the Workshop Calendar page.
Enjoy a cosy afternoon or evening of crochet, or come and have fun making your own unique lined bag you can proudly take home with you!
NEW for 2013
I am excited to be running the first of my Curtain and Blind making workshops beginning in March with curtain-making for beginners and in April a beginners Roman blind making course. For more information email me (firstname.lastname@example.org).
