    Hi, I just wanted to thank you for a wonderfully clear, well-written tutorial. I have just hung my first ever set of home-made curtains, made according to your instructions,and I am thrilled with the way they hang and the professional finish. I just wish you had one for pinch pleat curtains as well!

    Thank you so much! We are due to move into our first home (owned) and the thought of buying a whole house of curtains daunted me. Yet with this simple guide I am in the middle of making them all. And I was quite an amateur seamstress to begin with. So thank you, because your fab tutorial has saved me a lot of money and meant I could have fitted curtains in whatever fabric I liked!

    1 down 11 to go!

    Thank you so much for this amazing tutorial. I really didn't think I would be able to do it but I did!! I never finish any project normally!
    I have started with a single hallway curtain but now have the confidence to do floor length living room curtains.

    Once purchased how long do you have to wait to see the videos?

    They will play immeadiately automatically if your browser is compatable, otherwise an email is sent immeadiately on purchase that contains a Passcode.

    NOTE: The passcode email often gets put in JUNK folders, especially if you have hotmail account.

    I have been told there is a video on your site which shows how to insert buckram for double pleats Where is it?
    Sew Helpful
    It is not on the site as we haven't made that tutorial yet (its close only a few weeks away).

    Google  "how to insert buckram youtube"

    and you will find it on youtube. 
    Thank you so much for this amazing tutorial. I agreed to my husbands suggestion that I make my first pair of curtains for our baby girls room on the proviso I could find a good online tutorial. And you totally delivered! I was so nervous starting out but I now have a pair of curtains hanging that's I'm really proud of. I definitely could do things better next time around, but I never thought my first attempt would turn out so well. Thanks so much for your generosity in providing so much information for free. Amazing!
    Fantastic instructions - thanks very much! I would recommend them to anyone. I have made curtains several times before but they have never looked as good as the ones I've just made following your instructions. I found the videos made things very clear, so I would say it's worth paying a little money to access them.
    Thanks a lot, i have just made a pair of curtains for my daughters twin baby boys room. Thanks to your tutorial and the excellent videos that make everything really clear. i have made of pair of really professional looking curtains. Great
    Just wanted to say a huge thank you for your tutorial. I made my first curtain and thanks to your guidance I don't think anyone would tell I was a beginner. I made a huge 220cm long curtain for 285cm curtain rail and used 2.5 fullness ratio and it looks absolutely amazing. Not only saved a few hundred pounds but also have got a lot of pride that I made it myself. I think you are a good teacher and your instructions are so clear that during the whole process I did not have any questions or confusions. I think you are great. Thanks!

    Thank you Maija for such kind feedback and comments. 
    Extremely clear and helpful tutorial, thank you so much. Please can you do one with interlining too? (And is it possible to add interlining to an existing curtain, or do I need to remake?) Thank you!
    Sew Helpful
    We are making the interlined one now. To add interlining to a curtain you would have to take it completely apart then remake it.

    Finished a lovely pair of curtains in a few days with your superb tutorial. Thank you very much! Another roman blind next:)

    Thank you thank you thank you!!!! Such a good tutorial, I have just completed my first set of pencil pleat curtains and am so pleased with the finish. I attribute this entirely to the excellent tuition through the videos (£10 very well spent!)

    I have made 2 pairs of curtains following your tutorials and am very happy with how they have turned out. These are not my first curtains but they are by far the best. The videos are so clear and easy to follow and I am now considering making a roman blind as I trust your tutorials. Thank you!

    These instructions were really clear and easy to follow, I am so pleased with how my curtains have turned out, I think they look professionally made, thank you so much.
