I joined Denise for the one day curtain making course last week and thoroughly enjoyed it. As the only student I had Denise’s undivided attention and benefitted hugely from her wealth of experience. I hadn’t made curtains before but Denise’s calm, clear and relaxed method of teaching boosted my confidence and by the end of the day I had produced a professional looking lined curtain. I still can’t believe I made it myself (with a little help from Denise!) and am now looking forward to making curtains for my own home, armed with the skills Denise imparted as well as the notes I took on the day. Thank you again Denise, I really enjoyed the day and it was excellent value for money.
I have little sewing experience but I managed to learn how to make a professional looking curtain, Denise was an excellent teacher who was clear, concise and very patient. She showed me how to measure a window at different points to making each part of the curtain step by step and on a one to one basis. She welcomed me into her home and made me feel very relaxed and competent. I cant wait to start making curtains for my own home. Totally recommend this course for anyone starting out and wanting to learn how to make a basic curtain or just learn something new
I completed a one day curtain making course and had a really great day. Although I have some previous sewing experience, Denise is extremely knowledgeable and I learnt a huge amount. I came away with a professional looking curtain and full instructions so I can make my own. I would recommend this course to anyone interested in making their own curtains for themselves or others.
I would like to say a big thank you to Denise who gave me a class in making Roman Blinds. It was very informative and I got to take the sample Roman Blind I made home with me. I was also given written instructions with detailed drawings for me to keep and use in the future if needed. I would recommend this one day course to anyone who would like to learn how to make their own Roman Blinds as Denise's friendly yet thorough teaching method was perfect. Thank you
Superb day, fantastic outcome. Very highly recommended.
I booked this course for my daughter and myself and it was great. I have sewn before but my daughter is a complete novice but we both finished the day with a completed made to measure lined curtain with a weighted hem and pleated top. Despite us having differing levels of ability the course satisfied both our needs. I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to make curtains.
Thank you Denise for this great course and for welcoming us into your lovely home.
I'm looking forward to seeing you soon when you show me how to make a roman blind !!
I had a wonderful day that was very informative and easy to understand with a lovely teacher who was very patient with me. I hadn't made curtains before and not touched a sewing machine since I was at school, ( which was a long time ago). I was taught how to measure a window properly before starting to make the curtain, then I was taught step by step how to make a pencil pleat curtain from start to finish and was very pleased with the result. I am now looking forward to making my own curtains for my new home. I would recommend this course to anyone looking to learn how to make curtains either for themselves or if you are thinking of starting your own business. Thank you Denise.
