    I know Maureen Whitemore does videos the ones I have go back to the 1990's so they are really out of date. Methods of making and styles have evolved since then.

    I am sure there are experienced folk here that will be able to enlighten you as to how they tackle their blinds.

      Thanks Eileen,

      I've made a few roman blinds, but just from picking up little bits here and there, and everytime I attempt to make another I'm lost as to how to space the tape at the back.

      I have one on the table as we speak - material and lining together. It's 50" finish length and I've pencil drawn the lines at the back. 4 x 11" apart and 1 x 6" for the bottom. I'm using a bought track. As it's for myself it doesn't matter if it's not correct but for future I'd like to learn the proper way of constructing and spacing etc., and if there was a video it certainly makes it easier to see how than to read instructions.

        Hello Ursula
        I would suggest that you get hold of a copy of the Merrick and Day book "Blinds, Curtains and Cushions".
        It has everything that you need to know about making Roman blinds even how to work out the correct spacings.
        It also has some excellent pictures inside to illustrate the contrauction and fiiting aspects.

        I think there is a link on this forum to their web site.
        Kindest Regards
