What sewing thread do you use and do you special needles and where can you buy them
We use various brands of thread (quite often Guterman), we tend to focus
more on the colour match rather than brand or type of thread.
Regarding needles we like to use a long needle and usually use a size 5 Long darner. (we get these wholesale but you should be able to find them on google)
You trimmed some from the length when cutting the fabric panels but at what point do you trim to the correct finished length?
In STEP 8 when you prepare the top of the curtain you measure up from
the completed Hem the finished length of the curtain then fold the
fabric over as you form the heading with buckram. You trim away any
excess fabric then.
