Bonnie Hildebrandt, our Somfy tech, will teach this class. You will leave knowing how to put together a Somfy motor, attach it to either draperies or a roman shade, and how to sell it. I put together my first Somfy motor on a Roman Shade faster than a Rollease system!
You may order your Somfy motors through the Drapery Studio & we will attach them for you to your Roman Shades.
June 20 -- Perfect Panels
Over the years I've seen drapery panels made many different ways, some more successful than others. You will see samples of these. Then you will learn how to table and complete 2 of the most commonly used methods. You will also learn different pleats, how to figure for pleats, linings & interlinings, and how to fold your completed panels.
June 25 -- Roman Shades
Learn the Basics of Making Roman Shades! You will go home with a sample Roman Shade mounted on a board. You will discover how simple making a Roman Shade is, what sorts of linings are used, green aspects, how to sew on rings, weight bars, alternative headrail systems, how to attach valances, and reverse mounting techniques.
July 16 -- Tuffets & Ottomans
You may either bring your own garage sale finds to work on or purchase a tuffet from me. We will tear down your tuffet and rebuild it to learn basic upholstery skills. Then you will make a slipcover pattern to change your new tuffet for special occasions.
