Source for camo curtains in the metro area

14 posts in this topic

My online searches are only coming up with shower curtains. I need curtain panels for smaller windows, Mossy Oak or Advantage prefered. I'd rather find already made panels, I know nothing about sewing.

Single? Or can't convince the wife that sewing curtains for the ice shack is important? grin.gif

I have found many sources on the internet that sell camo fabric in all the popular camo patterns. But then you'll have to figure out a way to sew them together.

Use camo drapes instead of camo curtains for your search on the internet. You will have better results.

I think drapes are gathered with the hook and close & open with the sliding track via pulling a cord.

Curtains use a rod. The curtains would get threaded through the rod.

Maybe I got that backwards, I don't know.

Buy material twice width of your window the make your own.

Or you could go with the swag look and not even do any sewing. Use a big ring at each corner of the top of the window. Slide you camo threw both of rings and let hang.

Use a seer curtain for that layered look.

Worse thing that could happen is you have a bunch of camo for duck hunting.

This reminds me of a buddy that wanted a camo orange hunting suit but was too cheap to buy one. First he sewed orange pants and top and then added round blotches of green, black and brown. He looked like a clown. ROTFLMAO.

I'll try the camo drapes search, thanks. Cabelas only has shower curtains and curtain hardware. Man I didnt think this would be that difficult confused.gif

So you guys are telling me there are still wives out there that sew? grin.gif

Yes I'm looking for curtains not drapes. I want to use a plain rod not hooks. These are for the new deer shack, perhaps I should contact Ice Castle they have camo curtains.

If you go to Michael's or JoAnn Fabrics they have camo fabric you can buy by the yard. They may know of some people that sew by the hour of something, that is where I would start. I was in there looking for foam rubber to make a seat cushion and covered it in camo fabric and use it on the deer stand.

Aw heck, this will show my sensitive side wink.gif Go to Mills End Textile in Brooklyn Park (I think it is there, do a search) they have TONS of camo choices, good prices and helpful.

Then sew it yourself! It ain't rocket science smile.gif Actually, I worked as mosquito research biologist for about 5 years, and we would have to make our own traps, etc., some of them used humans as "bait" - so some traps were giant! You should have seen the ladies at JoAnn Fabric when a grizzly dirty looking young guy would go in and buy like 70 yards of bridal viel material! hahaha, that was what we used for mosquito trap netting, as you can't just goa nd buy mostquiot traps off the shelf wink.gif Hehe, it actually was kinda fun. I even sewed my own custom decoy bags once upon a time, but haven't touched a sewing machine in a few years now.

There... now you can send me back to the kitchen in bare feet wink.gif

Thanks for the tips. I'll give Mill end a try. I already tried Michaels and JoAnn but they only the generic camo. I'm looking for mossy oak or Advantage.

I am sorry, that is actually the place I meant to say - the Mills End was one nearby to me and I got mixed up. Thanks RiverWader, that is an important correction. HARRIS is the place.

      Hit the secret beach on the sippi for a couple hours today with some crawlers. wind was pretty crazy. smally bit first then a sucker. then caught 4 eyes and decided to leave. a young guy came down while I was fishing and was casting a spinnerbait and I asked him what he was after. he said bass so I let him know that it is illegal to target them and eyes till next month and that the game warden watches people in the area quite often. He said he had no idea he could not fish for them, thanked me and said he wont cast anymore. nice young guy. I bet he will be down again with some crawlers.

      Go down to MG and they will steer you in the right direction.  I know that  different release is used for braid.

      Sorry if I was didn't make myself clear.   What I meant was can  a place like the landing make a living from the people who come to the higher end resorts and want to go out to eat?     Clearly Ludlow's has a target market and does very well with it.  Whether that same target market can sustain the landing is another question.   Seems like maybe not...     I still wonder why they don't put the menu online.... In this day and age,  I am used to checking out a place online before walking in the door.
