I bought four books in my quest to learn to properly sew curtains and drapes.

I bought four books in my quest to learn to properly sew curtains and drapes. I find the illustrations not too good and in most cases too difficult to follow. Guess what? That leaves a person having to figure it out on her own - guess I could have done that without the book!

I bought four books in my quest to learn to properly sew curtains and drapes. I have been sewing since girlhood, but simple curtains and throw pillows are the farthest I've gotten into home decorating sewing. (I'm a grandma now).

This book only got 2 stars because of the lack of photos, not of finished window treatments, but of projects in the making. I find the illustrations not too good and in most cases too difficult to follow. Guess what? That leaves a person having to figure it out on her own - guess I could have done that without the book!

In fairness to the author, this book did have something the others did not. This book has fairly extensive sections on fabrics, types, colors, usages, care, colors. Also, the back has yardage calculator charts which no other book has. Unfortunately, I would not buy this book just for that.

I think if this book were to be published with photos instead of difficult to follow illustrations, it would be a must-have for my sewing library. As it is, I cannot recommend it.

Although I do very little sewing anymore, I loved this book and it was invaluable to me in making a valance with some very expensive fabric.

It's good to have sewing experience when taking on these projects, but instructions are clear and concise. We have used this book as a visual aid for those choosing window treatments, combined techniques to create one of a kind treatments and mixed and matched treatments to accomplish the perfect projects.

I recently received this book and I have read it over. It is full of information on fabrics and curtain styles. There are a lot of beautiful photographs for inspiration. However as a how-to book it is intimidating. The instructions are written for advanced sewers. As someone who can only sew a straight line, I think I need Curtains for Dummies.

Perfect book for the sewer who is beginning to sew various window treatments. Arrived early as well, great service too.
I borrowed this book from the library to take a closer look before purchasing and am very impressed.
I found ideas in this book very inspiring. It has page after page of color photographs, with excellent color illustrations on how to achieve the curtains of your choice. Author has clear running commentary throughout the book and the projects' instructions are in a "recipe" format; what materials you need, how to take the measurement, and step by step instructions. I notice on the copyright page it was originally published in 1993 in Great Britain (there is a english country style about it), yet looking at the timeless, classic fabrics and designs of the rooms in which these curtains appear show no signs of dated materials. That's what I think good decorating style is all about.
The Complete Home Decorating Book by Nicholas Barnard would be an excellent companion book. These two books seem to share the same design sensibilities.
