My name is Jane and I am a lampaholic.
I started making shades in 2004 when my sister and I saw beautiful reproduction victorian lampshades on vintage lamps at a nearby antique mall. They were exquisite but out of our price range. I found shades on the internet too, but they were even more expensive.
I sleuthed around, did some research and discovered that I could make my own shades and taught myself how. Now both my sister and I have beautiful shades for all of our lamps and my house is overflowing with the fruits of my labor.
Each shade is fully lined and painstakingly hand sewn with 2 or more layers of fabric. The rosettes are all hand made as well and the trims are sewn on by hand, with only a small amount of glue in difficult to reach areas and to secure the ends...
