Pencil Pleat or Eyelet Headed Curtains

Curtains and Blinds
Love the look of Roman blinds, but never thought you could sew curtains or blinds

Now you can learn to make your own Roman blind or curtains. With The Little Sewing Works, you'll not only complete your own project, but you'll have the skills you need to make more curtains and Roman blinds in future.

Some sewing classes only teach you to make a sample, but with us you'll make a complete curtain or Roman blind, giving you a much better understanding. That's why our workshops get booked up so much in advance!

Classes are limited to 2 students, so you'll get personal attention
You'll leave with at least one finished curtain or blind, in your own choice of fabric
You'll go home with detailed instructions so you can 'go solo' at home
Our brand-new, fully computerised Janome sewing machines save you bringing yours
Use the lovely bespoke cutting table to make preparation easier,
Choose to bring a friend for a totally bespoke session
Refreshments are included!

what should you bring?
The cost of this sewing class doesn't include the fabric you'll need, or any blind-making kit. When we receive your payment, we'll send you an information sheet which guides you on how to measure up for your curtain or blind, and contains a helpful shopping list:

For curtains, the shopping list features fabric, lining, curtain header tape and thread. Choose to bring standard header tape or pinch pleat header tape.
For Roman blinds, it features fabric, lining, thread and where to source the Roman blind kit.
what skills do you need?
This course doesn't cover the basics, so ideally you'll have attended a Saturday Workshop or a 3- or 6-week course beforehand. You need to be confident with a sewing machine, and able to cut accurately in a straight line.

what should you plan to make?
We recommend you choose to dress a small window, so you can complete the whole task - perhaps a cloakroom or kitchen window. If you choose to learn to make a curtain, you'll sew a standard gathered, headed, lined curtain. (The tab-top curtain in the photo above was completed in the second curtain workshop). We'll send you details of how to measure up, and what you'll need to bring, once your payment has been received.
