Learn to make fabulous curtains in wonderful fabric, just like these

Blindingly Simple – we have just finished our 7th year and can’t wait to start year the 8th.  We have had an amazing time passing on our skills to people.

I just love teaching people how to make Curtains, Roman Blinds, Cushions and Lampshades.

If you love learning new skills and want to make beautiful hand made Curtains, Pelmets, Roman Blinds, Cushions and Lampshades, come a join us as we love teaching you.

With finances now getting even more  difficult we are all trying to save money, why not let us teach you to make your own beautiful hand made curtains, blinds and cushions.

Blindingly Simple Curtain, Roman Blind and Cushion Courses are aimed at both the beginner who wishes to learn the techniques to produce perfect soft furnishings every time or people who have a dream to follow and start up their own business.

Even if you have no sewing skills or experience we can teach you to make beautiful soft furnishings, please don’t be shy, we can teach you, all we need is your willingness to learn.

If you have a dream to follow and want to start up your own business we can help you with our ‘Become a Professional Curtain Maker’ course.  This course is just made for you, come and follow your dreams, you can make it happen and we can help you.  We understand that it can be ‘scary’ and you are uncertain but we will help you through it all.

We only take two or three people at a time on any of our courses so you will always get personal attention at all times.  We try to match people with similar skill levels so you don’t feel intimidated by anyone.

Our courses are run from my small informal workshop in Four Marks, Nr. Alton, on the Hampshire, Surrey, Berkshire border.  So come and learn the techniques in making perfect hand made Curtains, Roman Blinds and Cushions  in a small, friendly and homely environment.

You will make and take home  sample curtains and blinds that will be to a professional standard. Our Advanced Curtain Making course will give you the skills to produce curtains for those awkward odd shaped windows. You can also learn how to produce Roman Blinds, and to put the finishing touches to your room, learn how to produce beautiful Cushions and Lampshades too, all using our one day courses.

All equipment and materials (including fabric) is included in the price. Comprehensive notes on the do’s and dont’s will be provided.

Specialised haberdashery items for projects can be purchased on site.

When your learning is all done and you are on your journey to becoming a curtain and blind maker the support doesn’t stop there, you will be part of an exclusive ‘club’ -(people tell me they call it the ‘Penny taught me’ club) and you will be invited to come to ‘things’ we do – mainly we do  ‘get togethers’,  ‘mini meet ups’, ‘coffee mornings’ or ‘lunch’ for charity and over the last two years we have raised well over £3,000 for various good causes.  The last one was a Track and Polr day where we were introduced to all things ‘Poles and Tracks’, we raised an amazing £1,010.00 for The Brain Tumour Trust and the one before that was Christmas Wreath Making Morning which we raised £540.00 to help one of my ‘girls’ Mandy who is running the London Marathon for Children with Cancer.  Go to our Facebook page and look at the ‘photos’ to see us having a good time.


You will also be invited onto our private forum where you can ask all your questions, fine fabrics and loads of other information.  It is also a really good way of staying in touch with others too, so you know you are never alone, there is always someone that will help you.

This means that you get lots of support both from us here and also from others that have been on the same journey as you, so you don’t feel so alone while you are building your business.  Self employment can be very lonely road and we strive to try to make it easier.

We are just a phone call away
