Decorating your home can be a fun experience. However, as things age, things rip and break. Classes at Durham Tech teach you how to sew and repair furniture yourself, so you can fix certain problems at your own convenience. Courses also are available for those wanting to make their home a bit more personal by creating their own decorative items such as window valances and cushions.
