        Hi Ali

        Price & Co have a good selection of regency stripe - Not sure if they sell upholstery weight though.

          I have just looked in my Price & Co regency stripe sample book and it is an upholstery grade fabric. Polyester Viscose mix . It's definately an adequate weight for the job.

            Update on that fabric from Price & Co. I was advised NOT to use it for curtains but only for upholstery as it is a woven stripe and goes off grain quite badly (they told me that!).

              Thanks Sue - - - That's good information. Personally I don't like the fabric and would only use it for foot stools and the like but one needs to know the facts. I need to talk to the fabric purchasing manager in Southampton this week so I will put that on my list of things to discuss with him.

              Technically this off grain patterning can not occur as the fabric invariably comes off the loom with the warp and weft fibres square to the frame. The problem usually arises because of the distortion which occurs during the continual rolling and re-rolling that goes after looming and prior to you receiving it as a curtain maker. Much can be done on the bench to correct this aparent off grain distortion as long as the pattern is loomed in as it is in the regency stripe and not embroidered or printed in afterwards which, as we all know, is a whole different ball game.
