Keeping your home cosy warm when it’s cold outside can be difficult and expensive. One way to keep the draughts out and make your home more energy efficient is with thermally lined curtains.
The video tutorials are presented by Lauren Guthrie, finalist of BBC2’s Great British Sewing Bee 2013, and were shot at Southwood House Farm holiday cottage at the National Trust’s Calke Abbey Estate.
Lauren, owner of Guthrie & Ghani haberdashery in Birmingham, said: “It’s surprising how much difference thermally lined curtains can make in keeping the warmth inside your home.
“You don’t need to have advanced skills to have a go at this project – all you need is some spare time and a sewing machine.”
