    Default Help Needed Regarding Large Eyelets.

    Hello all,

    I'm posting here to seek the advice of people vastly more experienced and knowledgeable about crafts than myself.

    I'm reasonably capable with my hands, although I don't have any of the tools required to make curtains myself, hence I'm seeking your counsel regarding the best way to solve a problem I have.

    I have an abnormally large diameter curtain pole (50mm) that I need curtains for. The curtain requirements beyond this are nothing special - 230cm drop x 240cm width, but I cannot find anywhere with eyelets that are 60mm or greater. I'm specifically looking for eyelet-type blackout curtains. Does anybody know of a product I could purchase, or alternatively somewhere I could get a 'normal' eyelet set of curtains (eyelet circa 40mm) altered to have a larger eyelet diameter?

    I suppose what I'm asking on a forum such as yours is whether the equipment to modify the too-small eyelets of an off the shelf pair of curtains exists, and if it's commonplace. Are there likely to be craft-spe******ts in the area that might be able to help me out with such a request as a paid service?

    Thanks for any advice or direction you're able to give me.

    -Austin.
