  • Making pinch pleat curtains

    I'm not sure who it was who suggested this, as I can't find the original post. Someone suggested when machining pinch pleats to stitch from the bottom to the top, so that the bulk of the fabric was behind the machine - I'd never thought of doing this.

    I've just finished these six width, 307cm long curtains (interlined as well!). It took two of us to lift them. I put another table behind the machine to take the weight of the curtain and tried this. It was fantastic, and I don't think I could have stitched them my normal way, from the top down. So whoever it was, many thanks!

    Now all I've got to do is hang them....
    Kind regards

    Well done Pen!

    Much easier isnt it when you have long drops. I always machine mine from bottom to top with the weight on the table, once you master the technique its works really well.
    Suel uses this method too and a couple of other members but I cant recall who

    I bet the curtains looked fab!
