Ohhh Kay! Here's another prize that is being added to the U-Handblog End of Year draw in which 1st prize is a smashing Janome sewing machine. The draw opens tomorrow!!
This book is 1 of 2 just published craft books that we are giving away! Both books are published by David & Charles - the same folks who are publishing my tome.
The 2nd book to be given away is reviewed here.
First up we have a clearly written book on curtains and window treatments. It's written by Wendy Gardiner who is the chief editor of Sewing World Magazine (the magazine I usually write for - when I don't have books to write). So rest assured that Wendy knows a sewing thing or two about a sewing thing or two!
With bespoke curtains costing squillions (and shop bought not always coming up to the mark) why not make your own. My Mum does (Hi Mum!) and she always makes fab matching cushions too.
With a fresh clean look, the 144 pages will explain many of the most difficult parts of curtain production in a clear, no nonsense way. Take one window, add a sewing machine, throw in some fabric, mix well.... it's curtains for the days when you didn't know how to make curtains!
Wendy Gardiner's new book: The Sewing Bible: Curtains
Very cute tab tops on these cutains
Graceful country style pinch pleat curtains.
