This course was great – I was initially a little anxious taking on such a large project, however I had been on one of the lampshade courses Jacqueline has run in the past and she was so encouraging throughout that I thought I’d give it a try. She showed us step by step and was on hand to answer all our questions. I have left the weekend with a beautiful blind ready and confident to begin designing ones for our spare room!
Response from JSInteriorsUK:Fantastic, you now have all the skills to tackle larger projects. I'm looking forward to seeing the new blind in your spare room. Please send me a picture when your project is complete.
