I love your videos they have given me the confidence to make my own curtains and blinds....Julie
Your videos are so good, thank you…..Alex
Once again, I should say that I think the video tutorials are extremely well done. Although I've been sewing for years I've learnt lots of techniques that are new to me and that give a much more professional finish........Heather
Thank you for such brilliant tutorials and videos....... ....Barbara
I have absolutely loved your videos for curtain making, I have learnt so much from you….Charlotte
What sewing thread do you use and do you special needles and where can you buy them
We use various brands of thread (quite often Guterman), we tend to focus
more on the colour match rather than brand or type of thread.
Regarding needles we like to use a long needle and usually use a size 5 Long darner. (we get these wholesale but you should be able to find them on google)
Do you ever use curtain weights?
Yes always, we inserted them at an earlier stage STEP 6b when we inserted the interlining in this tutorial.
You trimmed some from the length when cutting the fabric panels but at what point do you trim to the correct finished length?
In STEP 8 when you prepare the top of the curtain you measure up from
the completed Hem the finished length of the curtain then fold the
fabric over as you form the heading with buckram. You trim away any
excess fabric then.
