Demo/Sew along via zoom
If you've been shopping for drapes/valances any time in the last century you know the phase "One size fits all..." is just not true. Instead of giving up on your home dec dreams, why not learn to make them a reality. Literally! This workshop is designed to teach you how to create lined valences or draperies quickly and easily.
