|A few years ago.. well more than a few!! I was introduced to lamp shade making. I've always loved those fancy Victorian Lampshades but was too tight to pay store prices for either new or genuine antique.
Now it isn't something you can do in a hurry, it takes me about 6 weeks to make one, but its very satisfying. Mind you do need cast iron fingers, sewing by hand against metal wires has the needle in my fingers fairly frequently, causing blood loss and a halt in proceedings. Silk and blood don't go well together!!
