Date and Time

This course will teach you the techniques to make a roman blind.  We will be making a small scale version of a roman blind to show you the processes involved.  You will learn how to cut the fabric and lining, work out where to place pockets, hand-stitching including stab stitches, and finally a demonstration of how to string a roman blind.  At the end of the course you will have a basic understanding of how to make a roman blind and how to use the hardware so you can make all your own blinds for your home.

Please note you will be making a sample blind to our measurements.

A sewing machine – if you need to use one of ours please let us know when you book

A basic sewing kit – scissors, pins tape measure etc – we do have a supply of these if you need to use ours.

Just to let you know I have finished my first couple of blinds following Sarah’s fantastic blind making course 10 days ago. She made it really clear with lots of insider tips! Can’t wait to tackle the rest of my house!

Why choose us?

A small business giving the best customer service


Thank you so much for my necklace and earrings. My sons were quite bemused that a vendor knew me by name and your personal touch made us all feel good. So much nicer than the faceless Amazon or even the posh mens clothing stores that I frequented (virtually) over Christmas.

I love the necklace and earrings - you were right they do match and I will share your site with friends

Myself and my daughter came in to choose a pattern to get us back into sewing again. Lizzy was so helpful, talking us through all of the patterns she has and what fabrics would suit the pattern and our skill level. We are so exicited to get started and thats thanks to Lizzy's patience and help in the shop. We can't wait to come on one of your workshops.
