This class includes a choice of McCall's pattern #5286 or #6299 that are mounted on a board. I chose the 6299 for my project. This class is taught by Sue Sampson and Ellen DeLucia. They explain all the measuring details extremely well and their personal tips to make this project go smoothly. There is a class instruction page that gives the details for accurate measurements then deciding on your style of valance and board length. There are more instructions to print off for directions for your pattern choice and complete instructions for lengths longer than the standard measurements. Instructions are included for choosing the board and how to prepare it. A complete materials list is furnished as well as tips on choosing lining fabrics. The class goes into detail about your tools and what equipment is needed. Lastly they provide a resource list. This class was presented very well. I suggest watching it all the way through and take notes first. Gather your supplies and take your measurements then start the lesson again and complete each step with the class lesson. I was very pleased how my project turned out and highly recommend it.
