Frequently Asked Questions
What is covered in a Guide?
All the guides are written in a clear and easy to understand style. They are aimed at people who have already mastered basic curtain and blind making and are looking to move on to more challenging techniques. Where applicable they share detailed, up to date information and instructions which have been gathered in real workrooms based in the UK.
Where a guide is described as ‘how to make...’ it will include instructions and photographs to make the item yourself. Other guides do not include actual instructions, but describe the choices and options available on a certain item or topic. Wherever possible, colour photographs are used to illustrate the information.
How long are the Guides?
The Guides vary in size from one or two A4 pages to 8 or more. The number of pages depends on how many photographs are included, and the complexity of the topic.
