Hi I've got some pin hooks for my interlined pinch pleat curtains (1.7m long) i've made following your tutorials, they are about 2.5cm in height however your pin hooks in the video look bigger about 4cm. Would you advise getting larger pin hooks and if so any advice where to get them online? I can only seem to find the 2.5cm ones. BTW your tutorials are wonderful, i am a curtain novice to curtain making and I have also not done any sewing for 10+years. As a complete beginner i am pleased how they have turned out and will be ever thankful for your calm, methodical and detailed lessons which gave me the confidence to have a go. Thank you so much.
Ours are approx 3.5cm long, we buy in bulk from a wholesaler, you could try Merrick and Day. We wouldn't use the smaller ones.
Why do you insert 2 pin hooks per pleat for interlined curtains but only 1 for lined curtains? Is it due to the extra weight? And do they both go through the same curtain ring?
We use 2 to help reduce the loading on the pin on heavy curtains. Both hooks go through the same ring eyelet.
Thank you for your fabulous tutorial! Your videos were easy to follow step by step and I would not have managed without them. I now have beautiful interlined double pinch pleat curtains hanging in my living room and I am so pleased with them.
Your tutorial was invaluable. I’m thrilled with the fully interlined triple pleat curtains that I made for my mother. I still can’t believe how fab they are. Thank you so much. I’m very happy to recommend the course for anyone unsure about going ahead.
Thank you for the kind comments
