              Thanks Sharon, I made these eyelets with tape and cut the holes in them, but I'm thinking of investing in an eyelet press as the curtain makers in the city here all use one and say the curtains would be much better.

                I have to agree also on thicker fabrics the plastic dont work as well or wont work at all. i have had a press for a couple of years now, its cuts the holes and fixes the eyelets. It also covers buttons too.

                  Hi Sharon, I've just this minute put in an order for the eyelet press, so hopefully it will pay for itself after awhile. I'll have to up my charges for eyelets I think lol What are the most popular colour eyelet as I'll probably need to order some stock in, and I presume the 40mm is the most popular size.

                    I have found that the antique brass, chrome, and satin nickel are the most popular ones that i have used. I only do the 40mm.
                    have fun with your new eyelet press, when will they be delivering it?

                      I don't have a delivery date yet but hopefully I'll have it next week, as I have a customer looking for eyelet curtains. I'll put her off for awhile until I am sure I can use it, and of course I'll need to know what colour eyelets she wants so that should give me some time to get used to it. Is it easy to use and do you space the curtain top first with marks of some sort, I guess I'll have plenty questions on site when it arrives.

                      Sharon what eyelets should I order for practising? Are the antique brass, chrome, and satin nickel expensive as I'll need to know approx price for customer

                          Hi well done the curtains look lovely ,iam sure you will get on fine with an eyelet machine ,we took the plunge and bought one a couple of years ago and it has more than paid for itself ,also you will be able to space your rings and pleat to pattern ,which you cant really do with tape
                          all the best

                              Hi,
                              There are different types of eyelet presses, so how to use it and how easy it is depends on which one you will have. I can only say what mine is like to use, which i dont think will be the one you have bought. With mine you have to adjust the pressure to make sure the eyelet is set sucurely, dont know if they all work like that. Once i got used to it i know find it easy to use. All the eyelets in those 3 colours are the same price so dosnt matter which ones you use to practice on.
                              good luck
                              sharon
