  • Home Furnishings Workbook - Maureen Whitemore

    A brilliant and clear handbook - not so much for inspiration, more for the little 'how to' bits and pieces you are trying to get right.

    I woudln't be without this book on my shelf.

      Hi All........loving the site, so many topics available when will I get any work done??
      I make for a shop as well as having private customers and I really liked the technique she shows for tidying up the ends of pencil pleat tape, simple but effective.

        Yes I like that too. When you twist the ends. Its a lovely way to finish them off professionally.

          Had a quick look on Amazon, there appear to be two, are they the same ie hardback or paperback, or is there one in particular you would recommend. Got lots of knowledge but am always willing to improve techniques.

                    Hi Cat C.,

                    I can't remember whether I bought my copy from Amazon, Abe books or Ebay. I've just checked Abe and they don't have any listed, but Amazon do, priced from £10.00.

                      I've been searching for the above book for ages and spotted a copy from a U.K. seller for sale on Amazon tonight - went ahead and bought it only to discover they will not dispatch to Ireland address. I could buy it from the U.S.A. but the postage is very high. Are there any book stores in the U.K. that any of you could suggest I try.

                              Enid, I think it is the same book, called Home Furnishings Workbook, just different editions.
                              Kind regards
