Blind and cushion workshop

The weekends session went really well. 
Everyone who came managed to take home a finished blind made for their specific window or a selection of unusual cushions.
It felt like the first day of spring so we ate our lunch outside- home made quiche, salad and bread...washed down with plenty of tea and coffee and homemade cakes!
In the future I'll have a studio outside, but for the meantime I cleared the kitchen and set up work stations for everyone and sewing machines.

One of the ladies brought her own blind fabric, but wanted to brighten it up, so had a rummage in my selection and picked this bright yellow/green to compliment it. She's then going to add some bright buttons and tassles to make it really individual. 
Enjoying the fresh air and views over a spot of lunch! 
One of the lovely ladies left a review on my Face book page: 

'I attended Lucy's Roman Blind workshop as a gift to my mum for Mothering Sunday. Lucy was warm and welcoming and based her workshops in her unique home. She created an informal and socialable day delivering an array of experience in interiors. I loved the fact that each person brought a different idea of the same project to the table, which made it personalised. We all ended up with a finished product we were happy with and Lucy made it achievable. I really recommend that whatever your background or experience Lucy will be supportive and help you learn new skills that you will continue to use. Thank you so much for an amazing day! Plus the lunch was delicious and was lovely to eat outside looking out into the countryside. Thank you so much.'  Abbie 

The next workshop will be on the 2nd April 2016. 'A taste of Interior Design'
A day to inspire any interior enthusiasts, it'll be a mix of theory and practical tasks, and give you the confidence to be bold and brave with your own interiors.
