getting curtains made?

Anyone ever get curtains made?

Looking for a certain design on blackout curtains but cannot find them (at least not ones I can afford). I have found them for around $60 something a panel.

I found PERFECT fabric at JoAnns. But I can't sew. Anyone know of anywhere to bring fabric to have curtains sewn?

TIA

Re: getting curtains made?

just an FYI, custom window panels are VERY expensive ..........

If you have a a friend or family memember who can sew a straight line, you might want to solicit their help.
Also, you have to consider how much fabric you need for the panels. Sometimes that runs into $$$$

There is a place I always see on the LIE service road going east right before the exit for Rt. 110. I forget the name but they have a big sign on the building saying that they do make custom window treatments.

Lots of bloggers make their own window panels using no-sew tape that you iron together. If you google, I am sure you would be able to find a tutorial.

I really want to learn to use a sewing machine for basic simple things like this!

AGREED! I want to learn to use a sewing machine! The curtains would be hung up by now. Chat Icon

I want to try the "no-sew" method, but DH wants me to try to get them made. He doesn't trust my crafty skills! Chat Icon

Thanks for the input everyone!!!
