    If you’ve ever wanted to make your own home furnishings then this is a great place to start. In this 1 day workshop you will make a sample size Roman blind and a Piped cushion!! You will leave with your makes and full instructions as a reference for when you make lots more at home.

    In this workshop we will discuss how to measure and calculate your blind size and fabric requirements.

    Basic sewing skills required, you need to know how to thread a machine and sew a straight line.
