Applemoon Interiors

I really wanted to share with you, my day I had last week at Applemoon Interiors. My sister in law saw on groupon, a voucher for a Curtain Making course, so as you can imagine I jumped at the chance !

As soon as I arrived I knew it would be a lovely day ! Kim, the lady taking the class was so welcoming, so we felt right at home - I could so totally move in !

 
 The workshop is held in the most peaceful setting in a gorgeous little barn.



 
Look how gorgeous everything looks ! There was material everywhere and gorgeousness all around !

There was even free flowing tea and coffee and biccys throughout the day.

Kim started by talking us through the different types of curtains and finishes and how to measure your window ! We then got to start on our own mini curtain !



Kim is so lovely and helpful and she was really good at showing us what to do ! She didn't even mind when I had to be shown twice !

So off we went... I have to say, I didn't know there was so much hand sewing in making curtains, so that was a nice new challenge for me but I think I did OK!



We had a lovely spread for lunch including some gorgeous little cakes and more tea !

Annnnd.... here is my finished curtain, impressed? I was !! Look - it has ruffles and everything !



So, if you would like to find out more visit the website here and check out Kims Facebook page & Twitter here ! All her workshops are listed on the website.

I can't recommend them enough - and I will be booking on my next one very soon ! Thinking cushions with zips next !

Thanks Kim x

  1. Really cool!! I want to try making curtains - I'm just learning to sew and I posted a patchowrk cushion I made and next up is one with a zipper too! Zippers seem tricky!
