Roman Blind Making: Customer Updates!

Updated: Feb 10

If you’ve been tempted by the roman blind course but not sure if it’s for you, take a look at how some of the other students found the course.


If you’re a total beginner like Gemma, this is the course for you!



“This course has been brilliant, very well guided, and easy to follow with its broken down chapters, even for a complete beginner. I have never made anything like this before and it feels like a huge accomplishment during this time - it has been such a brilliant way to switch off. Sophie guides you through all the steps, also giving great hints and tips along the way. I am so proud of my finished blind, and honestly didn't think I could make such a professional looking blind. A huge thank you to Harris & Rose, it's been so enjoyable and a brilliantly put together course - sign me up for the next!”







Philippa messaged me with lots of questions and hesitation about joining an online course after being away from a sewing machine for many years, but didn’t regret signing up either.







“Having bought some well made blinds previously, at high expense, and looking for a creative project I came across Sophie's course and thought I would give it a go. 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.”

Suzanne also aced the course, and treated her Mum to her first handsewn blind.


“I have just finished the course and am delighted with the result. The course was excellent - I learnt so much and can’t wait to start putting all my new found skills in to practice. Thank you Sophie.”


You may have made blinds before but think they could be better. This is easily done with some fresh tuition, and a layer of interlining! Genny is a convert to adding this fluffy layer of fabric to give some oomph and luxury to your blinds. She is also a whizz at pattern placement which mustn’t be overlooked when making blinds!



“Absolutely thrilled with my blind. Thank you Sophie for the brilliant course I can honestly say I have produced a perfect professional blind. The drape is gorgeous...being interlined in naturally falls into beautiful folds. Can’t wait for the curtain making course.”


I was delighted when Helena joined the course. She messaged me to say she’d followed an online course to make a blind with blackout lining and wasn’t too impressed with the result, and could my course possibly give better results? After seeing some pictures, I was more than confident that my method would teach Helena to make a professional blind that she could be proud of.


The blind on the left is covered in machine pin holes, not ideal when you’re trying to make a blackout blind! And the folds are not evenly spaced which makes the blind look wonky and messy.


Helena decided to completely start again and buy new fabric; the new blind fits inside the window beautifully and has perfectly even folds. My method of adding a layer of blackout lining also means you’re not left with hundreds of tiny pin holes to let all the light through!
