  • Hello everyone

    Thought it would be nice if I actually introduced myself before I started posting, having just joined.

    I currently do sewing for a living but not curtains. I used to make curtains but stopped doing them many many years ago, partly due to lack of space. Anyway I have over the last few months been getting more and more enquiries about making curtains and have finally decided that I would start making them again having just secured a job making curtains which came via word of mouth. This job will entail making full length curtains with hand pleated tops, floor length for three rooms in a wonderful old 1710 house. So I'll be fishing out all my old notes and picking your brains if you dont mind as all the curtains I have made have been for myself in a run of the mill three bed semi, not floor length and all made using curtain tape, sorry if thats a nasty word to some of you.

    I've been looking at previous posts over the last couple of days and my what alot of information I have gained its making me quite inspired to get started on the curtains.
