DRAPERY

An important part of any decorative project is the drapery fabric you choose. Beyond simply selecting the right print and coordinating colors, decorating with drapery fabrics also entails purchasing the correct yardage. Failure to do so can stunt a project before it gets off the ground.

The following charts offer some estimates on how many yards you may need for specific window treatments. These charts are not intended to exhaustively treat every possible drapery project, but rather to give approximate yardages for some of the most common. Furthermore, as these charts are guidelines and not definitive statements, they do not eliminate the need for you to make exact measurements before purchasing fabric. Some members of our staff have over 40 years experience in the retail fabric industry, so if these charts do not satisfactorily clarify your questions feel free to send us your inquiries to info@bettertex.com.

BEDDING

Fabric for bedding is often overlooked because of a lack of variety or because of the expense associated with department store prices. However, Bettertex carries an extensive selection of fabrics that are appropriate for bedding. These are designer fabrics at discount prices that are ideal for bedspreads, pillow covers, sheets, blankets, duvets, dust ruffles and so on.

The following charts offer some estimates on how many yards you may need for specific bedding projects. These charts are not intended to exhaustively treat every possible bedding project, but rather to give approximate yardages for some of the most common. Furthermore, as these charts are guidelines and not definitive statements, they do not eliminate the need for you to make exact measurements before purchasing fabric.
