Comments: Directions are difficult to follow
I've purchased this book and have found that the directions are not at all easy to follow. Details are left out, and diagrams are few and far between. I wouldn't recommend it.

Comments: Save thousands of dollars making your own shades
This book was my primary reference while I made shades for 13 windows, saving thousands of dollars over having them made by a workroom. Not only did the book provide inspiration by use of many pictures, I found the instructions to be more than adequate.
