    Thanks Tessa, you need to get off your knees young lady and stand up at a bench. Dining room tables are almost as bad as working on the floor and will give you chronic back problems with continued stooping over a low surface. Home curtain makers always have problems with bad posture. You need to have a surface which is at least the height of your kitchen sink so that you can stand erect and straighten your back.

    Good luck with your project Tessa.....................Clive

      Hi Clive, Was this thread continued elsewhere? I've got as far as "stitching bottom hem" Really useful, Thank-you.

        OH dear Heather, I think a lot of weekends have passed since I wrote that last comment. Very remiss of me I know but I will get round to finishing it soon. If I don't get round to it on Saturday then I will mail you and send you the PDF document of my lesson notes which goes a lot further into the instructions. Having said all that if you PM me with your email address then I will send you the PDF anyway then you're a bit safer with the job.

        Kind regards Clive

            Hi Clive,

            this is an awesome thread/tutorial you've started here. I've started following it too and my mitres look beautiful thanks to you. I really wanted to do it right first time.

            Thankyou very much for all your time and hard work: I just had to join the Crafts forum to let you know that.

                sorry to resurrect this thread after so long.. Have just joined and it is fantastic information. Is there any way to view the pictures which were originally posted along with the instructions? I appreciate that they may now have been removed from where ever they were stored..

                  Good morning SpitSpot. It is quite a while since I started this thread and it brings back many happy memories of my early years in teaching the craft of curtain making. I am afraid I don't know what happened to the pictures that went with the my earliest posts but I am sure that I have them somewhere. If you email me at [email protected] I would be more than happy to sent you training notes and pictures which may help you. I notice that you have suggested, in one or your other posts, that you are considering starting a curtain making business and again I would be pleased to help with any information I can. I also have a blog, I am sure it is Ok to mention it here. It is https://classicalgenesis.wordpress.com . I have more or less retired but still run courses now and again to help those who want to obtain the highest accolades in the craft. Kind regards ~ Clive
