"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?

Ghostwriting is not "cheating." In today's publishing marketplace, few non-fiction books on the shelves are actually "written" by the authors. You'd be surprised how many works of fiction were written by ghosts, too.
Experts in their field often want to publish a book demonstrating their knowledge, but simply do not have the time or inclination. Many people find writing challenging. That's normal — if writing were easy, everyone would do it!

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. You are the expert. Your ideas are on each and every page.

Ghostwriters just help get you there.

How does the process work?

Each project is different. The first step is crafting a book plan and determining the scope of work. Then we draft your plan and how your book will take shape. Once we've finalized the book plan, you are paired up with one of our expert writers who will write your story in your voice.

How much does hiring a ghostwriter cost?

Every project is different.
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: Founder Barbara Basbanes Richter has written over two dozen books for politicians, pundits, scientists, CEOs, professional athletes, bankers, professors, and other ghostwriters. Some of these books have been and New York Times bestsellers, and one is currently being optioned for film. In addition, Barbara writes a weekly book column for Fine Books & Collections Magazine and covers literary culture in all forms for Literary Features Syndicate, High Country News, The Sewanee Review, and other outlets. Barbara is a voting member of the National Book Critics Circle and is currently under contract with Bancroft Press for a forthcoming translation from French to English of a novel written by a onetime bestselling, now-forgotten French author. Senior writer, editor, and translator Erika Hearthway studied translation and localization management and oversaw large-scale, multilingual translation efforts before shifting to content creation. Erika has written and edited books for scientists and entrepreneurs. When not geeking out over choosing the perfect turn of phrase, she can usually be found exploring her current home, New York City, and trying out the latest fitness trends. Senior editor and proofreader Shannah Hogue ensures every word is the best one for your book. She lives with her family in a big blue house in Ohio where her favorite things are books and taco salad with home-canned salsa. Our team also includes publicists, foreign language writers, audiobook readers, and book designers.

I think I'm terrible at sewing, will I manage the course?

If you have the inclination to learn then absolutely yes! The course has been put together so it’s easy to follow, there are lots of close ups and verbal instructions too. I will be making the curtain at the same time so it feels so though you’re in the workshop with me. Whilst you’re waiting for your kit to arrive, practise threading your needle and you’ll be away in no time!

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?

The course has been tried and tested to make it as watertight as possible, so hopefully you won’t have any questions! Once you enroll on the course you will become a member of the Harris & Rose forum where you can chat with myself and other students and also share pictures of your finished blind.

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.

Come and join me in my workshop, from the comfort of your own home!

and get started on making your house a home.
