"The Bible" for curtain makers,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Encyclopaedia of Curtains (Hardcover)
If you're after ideas and inspiration and want lots of colour pictures then this is not the book for you. More than half the book is taken up with detailed, stitch by stitch instructions on making curtains and blinds including measuring up, dealing with awkward windows, what types of fabrics to use in what situations and how to form handmade pleats. It's the best and most professional reference book around if you make curtains properly but it's really not a general interest or interior design book.
