Glue Sticks

mygaley | Posted in Equipment and Supplies on

A great big thanks to all of you for your advice and the encouragement.  I have been wrestling with a roman shade made of silk dupioni, lined with self-healing blackout lining.  The problem was that any stitching line would give a light strike when on the window.  Today I took another piece of lining, pressed the edges under and glued it in place all around.  I only had to remove one row of rings, and I used a very loose slipstitch to secure the lining to the shade.  The rings I sewed back on held the layers in the center together.  The glue kept me from ripping yards of stitching from a fabric that really wouldn’t hold up to it.  Thanks to all.  Galey

    you know the other thingto do is to make a shade which just has the loops and not the batons. This makes a quick and very nice soft Roman shade

      Thank you, Mem for reminding me of that.  This time, however, I was trying to help my friend the decorator "salvage" a project that had gone wrong--neither the original design nor the fabrication began with me.  Tonight the shade is installed and three out of three people are happy:  The customer, my friend, and me!
