Basics of Curtain Making 1

Curtains can completely transform the mood of a room, and good curtains instantly lift any space.  Well-made thermal lined curtains can make a huge difference in keeping a house warm and snug.  Having them made is extremely expensive, but it’s not that hard to make your own curtains for most windows.

Basics of Curtain Making class1

In this class you’ll learn the basics of curtain-making: the different types of curtain tape, and when to use which one, the special sewing stitches that give your curtains the professional look, how to measure for curtains, three different ways to line a curtain, and when to use which type of lining.

Basics of Curtain Making class2

As we work through the class you’ll make one set of unlined curtains (these can be made from pre-thermal lined fabric), and one set of lined curtains using the techniques taught.

Due to the time and space constraints, there are limitations on how big the curtains you make in-class can be, but you’re welcome to sew your own larger curtains at home along with the class, and bring them in for advice with each class.

If you want to learn the skills, but aren’t ready to commit to your own fabric, we can supply a certain amount of curtain materials for you to practice with in-class, and the resulting curtains will be donated to the Sustainability Trust.  If you are interested in this, please let Leimomi know when you register.

Materials:  Students will need to provide their own fabrics for both sets of curtains (unless you wish to make curtains to donate).  A materials list will be provided upon registration.  The class fee includes includes up to four meters of curtain tape: if you need more, it can be purchased in store.

To register for the class (or to inquire about any class), please email Leimomi with your name, a contact number and the name of the class you’d like to be in as the subject line.

Level: High-Beginner.  This class is ideal as follow-up to Absolute Beginners Sewing, or a refresher for someone just getting back into sewing.  Students should be comfortable cutting fabric and operating a sewing machine.
