Curtains anyone???

Now I am not sure if this will work out or not, but I know many of you have questioned about getting new curtains for your Sunnies...I have just finished updating mine and thought maybe someone out there who doesn't sew might really need some help. I don't want to start an avalanche (LOL!) but if I can help you out, PM me and we'll see what we can do. I know shipping can be expensive but compared to the big camper stores, I know this would be cheaper...we can explore anyway..and I assure you, I am not out to make a fortune--I am a retired seamstress but I do still "dress up" used RV's for a local dealer when he needs me...it's a thought....Jan P.S. couldn't get the editing feature in Photobucket to work so couldn't flip one pic....sry..look sideways!!!

Very nice work. My Wife Cindy just finished making new curtains and valance covers for our camper bedroom too. She does the inside crafty type things and I'm the metal and wood guy....

Thanks for sharing, again very nice.

John

If we didn't have a new TT I'd be calling you! Nice looking job - I like the sheers under the valance - really nice touch!

How do you replace the valances, they seem glued to a wood frame. Also the curtains hang on little curtain hooks under the valance. What type of fabric is good to use? Thanks

Re: valance question

Hi bcak....Most valances on Sunlines are NOT glued on but rather they are stapled (sometimes they used fabric spray adhesive for a nice smooth fit in the front). However, could be that your valances 'feel" glued because the fabric is stretched nice and tight. First of all, you should remove the curtains..then remove the valance (screwed into the paneling) and you can then apply new fabric right over the old..(the easiest way!). You can use staples again, spray fabric adhesive, or even hot glue, whichever you find easiest for you. As for the curtains,depending on your level of sewing experience, you may find ready made easier to work with and just alter them to fit. Otherwise,fabric selection is a matter of taste--I often use sheets from Dollar General which are inexpensive and nice to work with.Soft fabrics hang nicer than drapery fabrics for longer at-home windows.Hope you find this helpful...Janalee
