Guide to Roman Blind making

Choosing the Made to Measure services of department stores, specialist makers and web retailers to make and supply your window dressings can be really expensive. Friends recently requested a shop buying quote for two sets of curtains, lined, with eyelets designed to fit a couple of average sized windows in their home and were quoted over 2000 GBP. By shopping around, and choosing a lower priced fabric per mete-rage they were able to order to specification at a cost of 800 GBP. But still, a costly outlay. We can see why, there is no quick way round the process, and to do it all properly is really a labour of love. If you have an understanding of stitching work, and a sewing machine and some sewing essentials to hand, and a few free hours over a couple days to work at the making, then you can save a lot of money. This week we made two Roman Blinds showcased in the photography using Laura Ashley fabrics. The fabric was recently selling at a 50% discount, …

Featuring Dulux Matt Emulsion Paint – Denim Drift

  Whether you are convinced or not that depending on the colour of your painted walls can either help or hinder the way you feel when you are inhabiting that space within them, then perhaps it is worthwhile to consider putting blue shades back in the home. Not for curious and experimental reasons but because blue is (depending of the shade of course) everybody’s colour! There’s no disputing that the subtle duck egg shades have been popular for a while in interior design and home furnishings. Denim Drift is a versatile grey-blue shade and when twinned with deep and dark blues for example we think it can scream for attention in its own special way. Dulux revealed earlier in the year that Denim Drift is their colour favourite for 2017.  See how the Denim Drift shade balances and unifies the use of strong blue colour in the pic below Denim Drift Retail and Trade Paints Retailers such as B&Q retail 2.5 litre pots of Denim Drift. This matt emulsion version can be used in all …

THE BRITISH HOME STORE (BHS.COM) is TSS Business of the Month for November 2016

The British Home Stores (BHS) chain enjoyed the penchant type following of the British public for decades, successfully selling factory-made goods across many departments: fashion and accessories, children’s clothing; lighting and textiles; home and garden; as well as toys, stationery and confectionery, until it fell into administration in April of 2016 under circumstances steeped in controversy. Subsequently, it failed to attract a buyer which resulted in the closure of all of its UK stores this summer (2016) However, there is another thread to the BHS story happening right now. In recent months Qatar based corporate business the Al Mana Group has acquired the BHS Brand, the International franchise business, plus BHS.com for online retailing purposes About Al Mana Group: has a diverse portfolio of businesses and represents many large and successful brands worldwide across the luxury goods, beauty; fashion; home interiors; watches and jewellery areas of retail. TSS can confirm that Al Mana has a new company called BHS International which is now operating BHS.com It is our understanding also, that the Al Mana Group has bought …

Breaking the origami rules somewhat because of the inclusion of the use of quick -drying glue, and some cutting techniques. Described as multi-modular origami creations in fact.

Project papers by Caroline Gardner, Minerva Crafts and others. Follow Esther Thorpe’s step-by-step instructions and you can make home decorations that are strikingly unique.     More about the book: • Hardcover book with clear presentation of the projects.
