I have been looking for a current book that will provide specific instructions for making window treatments. I have looked at my local Barnes and Noble. They dont seem to have much on the subject and if they do its an outdated look... Any one have any book suggestions?

I purchased an awesome book called "the window". It was put together by two interior decorators. They show ideas for windows but no instruction on how to make them. The styles are very current...I just wish I knew how to make them!!!!

Try Amazon or BooksAMillion (if you have one)..B&N never carries quilting/sewing books that are current.
I like Amazon for current books and they have TONS.... has over 7600 listings under draperies.
