From the Publisher:

Offering a comprehensive guide to all aspects of curtain-making, this volume contains information on a range of styles, materials and techniques that cater for the beginner and more experienced alike. Designs range from no-sew easy options to the more complicated headings, valances and pelmets.

From the Author:

Curtains in all the designs and styles you can imagine are enjoying a revival, but it could be argued that traditional curtain making skills are a forgotten art. Life and curtains are never dull - there is always something unusual to explore and exciting to discover. The methods we outline here have been adapted from those developed in our own workroom but there is no reason why you shouldn't in turn adapt them to you your own situation and expertise, benefitting from our hard-earned knowledge, eliminating guesswork and enjoying timesaving shortcuts and professional techniques. These are the tips which, at the beginning, we would have given a fortune to know. Curtain making encompasses many different skills beyond the sewing machine, from using rubber bands, to pattern cutting, to a little carpentry and a lot of enthusiasm. Rather than limit the instructions to a few projects, which may or may not suit your needs, we have given careful outlines of techniques which can be applied to an infinite number of styles and designs. Treat the book like a pick-and-mix counter; take what you want and come back fro more when you've found out how satisfying it can be to look our at the world through a well dressed window. Throughout the book, no matter what your experience or skill, we hope you will find what you need, whether it's the simplest seam or the most elaborate swags and tails. Because we have included a great deal of detailed information, the make-up instructions are coded with a series of needle and thread icons, from one to four. They indicate the level of skill needed,from the very easy to expert. But be encouraged; almost all the techniques, even the four needle ones, depend more on your patience and time than on years of experience. Getting started is all that it takes to begin. Catherine & Rebecca, Redbourne 1996
