Do you want to go beyond the Big 4-Butterick, McCalls, Vogue, Simplicity - but you’re not quite sure if they are “good” or not? And then you buy them and they’re online and you don’t know how to get them printed? Or you’ve spent hours taping 8 ½ x 11 sheets into a full size pattern and never want to do it again? We’ve been there and done that so let us show you how to make sense of it all, including tracing those Burdastyle magazine patterns!!

Learn to make one fully lined, board-mounted roman shade. Bring in your window dimensions and the first class we’ll design the shades, cut out the fabric and lining and, if time allows, begin sewing. The following class will consist of assembling the shade and board mounting it. You’ll go home with a fabulous decorator shade and be eager to make more. Some sewing outside of class may be required.
