  • What type of fabric to use as a tablecloth at a craft fair?

    I've taken the plunge and arranged to attend my first event - sorted out my display stuff but am stuck with the tablecloth - I want to use a coloured fabric, but I don't know what type would be best or how much I will need. I don't have specific measurements but I'm guessing there's an 'average' size people have. Have a few weeks to go but sorting out tablecloth is now at the top of my to do list.

    I use black single bed sheets on my stalls, one sheet will cover a 6ft table.

      I bought a huge cotton throw in from Argos. The Living Diamond one, the fringe makes it look really nice

        I bought 3m of a 1.5m wide crushed velvet fabric. Big enough to cover the large tables at some events I go to and it never needs ironing. I can just shove it into a bag then take it out at the next event.

          Flat sheets everytime! I use a white one and have a quilt draped over that to add a bit of colour.

            Fantastic advice - I already have ordered some crushed velvet but I want a plain colour underneath - I'm off to the supermarket for a flat sheet (you've all saved me tonnes of money and unnecessary sewing) - and strangely enough i was wondering how I ironed the velvet..even better news that I don't have to!!

            Thank you all very much.
