"You couldn't possibly get more beginner than me, I last used a sewing machine at school 20+ years ago - I also thought an online course could be frustrating for someone very inexperienced, however I needn't have worried!"
"It felt like Sophie was in my kitchen making the blind with me and every stage was incredibly clear - I am delighted not only with my blind but also, in buying the course, I have invested in a new skill I can continue to use both for my own home and possibly even for others too."
Each lesson will begin with a key presentation outlining the contents of the chapter and what equipment you will need.
This is followed by a sew-a-long video. We will each make a sample curtain at the same time, I will provide plenty of instructions and close-ups. There is no need to watch the videos in advance, sew along with me!
At the end of each lesson, you can download a prompt sheet, so when you go on to make more blinds, you have a quick reference guide to remind you what to do next.
Is ghostwriting cheating? Is it real writing?
That's where ghostwriters come in.
Some clients want ghostwriters to plan and write their books, while others have a manuscript in progress that they want edited for clarity.
Ghostwriters just help get you there.
How does the process work?
How much does hiring a ghostwriter cost?
After our initial consultation where we determine the scope of work, we put together a proposal outlining the fee for the project, as well as offer options at different price points.
Who is the team behind In Ink Ghostwriting?
Most of our team likes to stay behind the scenes--we're ghostwriters, after all--but below are some of the people who help bring books to the printed page:
do I need?
In addition to your starter kit, you will need...
It is not essential but we highly recommend that you purchase a quilting ruler too. This is probably my most used piece of equipment!
A sewing machine with a straight stitch.
Basic sewing kit - fabric scissors, needle & threads, pins
I think I'm terrible at sewing, will I manage the course?
How long do I have to complete the course and how long does it take?
You have life time access to all the course content. In total the course is around 5 hours; this is divided in to 6 chapters so you can easily pick up where you left off.
If I get stuck can I contact you for help?
Do I need a special sewing maching?
No! All you need is straight stitch to sew the rods pockets in to your lining and attach the Velcro, there is no need to rush out and buy anything fancy or expensive. The remainder of the blind is done by hand sewing.
