Pick a great Ikat print and get sewing! January is a great time to dive into a project.

I love this. What kind of shade is that under the valance?

I want to sew two valance designs, however my windows are larger than the maximum pattern width. How would you recommend increasing the width? One design is Symmetrical (#5286) at 182" and the second design is Asymetrical (#6299) at 114". Thank you.

Hi, sorry about the delay in answering. Hopefully you have figured it all out on your own, but if not - #5286 you can just use your board width and in Step 2 of the Pattern you can determine the width of the box pleat and then doing the math determine how many box pleats there will be for your size window. The width might have to vary a little to accommodate the total width of the window. And in #6299 in the video we explain how to add a center pleat to accommodate wider width valances.

Hello Sue and Ellen, I am not sure if from here is that I suppose to write you. Can you please tell me what styles of valances will I learn with your class? I know I will learn the box pleated valance, I want to know what other styles will I learn. I want to take your class. Thank you.
