General Discussion / RV accordion front drapes
May 28, 2012, 05:30:33 pm
Does anyone know of a supplier of the drape carriers for the accordion style front drapes?
I know, it isn't exactly upholstery, but I was hoping someone would know.   All I can find on
the net is the camping world and Blindsparts.com sites.

Thanks for any help you can give!

Well, the Bible does state that "A day is as a thousand years and a thousand years is
as a day."

Interesting quote but do you think god really cares about the relevance of time. Time is a man made concept.

That is kind of what I was getting at.

One of the first points that a Bible skeptic will always raise is "Why aren't there any Dinosaurs mentioned in the bible?".
Apparently, those first 7 days outlined in Genesis 1 were REALLY lo-o-o-o-ong days.

Well, the Bible does state that "A day is as a thousand years and a thousand years is
as a day."

I, being very poor at the time, used hog hog rings to fasten my seat covers on the Plymouth.
They were even the "anti-root" hog rings with the extra bar welded to them.  It was all I could
find in the shed.  Of course my hog ring pliers worked out great because they WERE for hog
hog rings. 

I just pitied the poor person that went reaching under that seat for something!
I know I have no right to say anything on this site because I'm not a pro, just a DIY'er
for myself, but I have learned a LOT of information here on the craft of upholstery.
I for one would miss hearing all the ins and outs of the business end.  I truly hope
you will put up with me on your wonderful site, otherwise I will be quite sad!

Have you tried putting the screwdriver in the slot then tapping on the end of the handle to possibly break loose any
lock tite, then turning the screw?

You might change the "you" to "your" where it says " the camper top provides shade and rain

Next sentence where it says "camper enclosure panels......" the word "curtians" is spelled wrong,
it should be "curtains".

Just trying to help, not being picky!   

P.S.    Yes, it should be whether.

It is a beautiful ship!   I tried to find out something about it but came up blank.  I hope Grebo will
go visit the ship and ask her name and heritage!!
I would love to know about it.

I wish I could get a demo on the machine, but I can't even get a call back right now.  I know you guys are against it, but I think given the cost of the industrial machines and my already maxed out budget I'm going to have to at least try it on my home machine.  I have a walking foot for it and spent some time last night trying to get the tensions right to work with the heavier thread and vinyl, looks like it will work out ok....probably not as good as an industrial machine, but at least good enough to let me know if I can handle the job.  I really appreciate the advice I've gotten on here and since I have to go against it I will try to keep the questions that could be answered by "Get a good machine" to a minimum.  That being said, I'm still going to start a progress thread to keep you all posted as I work through what I'm sure is going to be an awesome experience.

I will tell you that I recovered both front and back seats on my '68 plymouth on my old Kenmore zig-zag machine.  It wouldn't feed the vinyl at all so I sewed them completely by just turning the wheel.  I never used the electric!  It can be done, but is a real PAIN!!
