Beading Q and A: Beaded Curtains (3/2/2011)

2011 March 2

Helen asks…

Where can I find the mounting tracks for making beaded curtains?

I am interested in making some beaded curtains for my living room, but don’t know where to go to get the beaded curtain mounting tracks. I’m not sure I am calling them by the correct name. The beaded curtains I want to make need to be somewhat full in order to block pedestrians from being able to see inside the home. I read one article that said I should use eye hooks to attach all the beaded strings, but I think they would have to be spaced more than I would like them to be in order to screw them into the curtain rod. If there is anyone that has any advice I am all ears.
Thanks a million~

BeadGal answers:

Instead of mounting the strings of beads onto a rod, sew them onto the bottom of twill tape the width of the opening you are making the curtain for. You can sew the strings of beads as close together as you want. Then on the top of the twill tape, sew cafe curtain rings. Then you can just put a curtain rod through the curtain rings.

Carol asks…

Where can I find patterns for beaded curtains?

I’ve looked at a few sites. They don’t offer any decent patterns. I’d like to make a beaded curtain with a cute pattern on it for my boyfriend, as one of those silly gifts. I don’t have a credit card, either, so buying one online is not an option at the moment. I’m sure there are some free online patterns out there somewhere… I just can’t find them.
:(
Any help would be appreciated.

If you want to make something more elaborate, you may have to improvise.

Hope that helps

Mark asks…

Where can I find beaded curtains online or in stores?

I am trying to re-do my bedroom, I have a walk in closet that is 72″ by 80″ and I would like to cover the doorway to the closet with beaded curtains. I don’t mind how the curtains look, I would just like to know a store or an online website where I could buy these at.

Thank you.!

BeadGal answers:

World Market has lots of beaded curtains. If there isn’t one in your local area, they have online ordering, too. Also, Spencer’s has beaded curtains too.
