I have had to rip the pleater tape out twice already. The top (blue stitches) is stretching as I sew causing problems with laying flat. Any suggestions?!?? Getting frustrated... wishing I had just used buckram and stitched my own pleats...
A shopper on Oct 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: That's odd. We used this tape in one of our tutorials and had no issues with stretching. I don't know if it could have anything to do with the fabric you're using. We double folded the drapery fabric at the top so there were 3 layers of fabric under the pleater tape. This made it quite stable.

It sounds like your feed dogs may not be pulling all the layers through at the same rate, causing the top layer to stretch. There may be some adjustments you can make to the machine, like lowering the presser foot tension. Using a walking foot would help the layers go through evenly.
Can this pleater tape be used to make Parisian style pinch pleats?
A shopper on Aug 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: If a Parisian pleat is the same as a French pleat, then yes! We have a tutorial for pinch pleat curtains if this is the style of pleat you want: www.onlinefabricstore.net/makersmill/how-to-make-pinch-pleat-curtains-with-pleat-tape/
I want to use five pleater hooks per panel with the two end hooks. How wide should my panel be?
Sharon J on Aug 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: With this pleater tape, each pleat would use up about 6 inches of fabric and 5.5 inches is a common distance between pleats. With a couple extra inches on the sides, that would be about 60 inches. We use this tape in a pinch pleat curtain tutorial: www.onlinefabricstore.net/makersmill/how-to-make-pinch-pleat-curtains-with-pleat-tape/
Where do the seams go when attaching the pleating tape?
A shopper on Jul 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: There's dotted lines at the top and bottom of the tape that you sew along. This will not affect the pockets on the pleater tape.
If you don't have a sewing machine, could you attach this with Stitch Witchery, or would it not hold?
A shopper on May 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You'd probably need to use a heavy weight interfacing, or fabric glue.
How many pinch pleat hooks are needed for a window 45 inches wide?
A shopper on Apr 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It depends on how far apart you want the pleats, but an average amount would be 8 hooks. That's how many you would need if you spaced them out about 5.5" like in this tutorial: www.onlinefabricstore.net/makersmill/how-to-make-pinch-pleat-curtains-with-pleat-tape/
I am not sure how to calculate yardage needed to purchase this tape to make my pleats I have two panels each 94 inches wide ?
A shopper on Mar 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: If 94" is the width of the panels before they're pleated, you would need 6 yards of pleater tape.

Easy to use
These tapes are good but the only gripe I have is that they get caught and pierce through the tape if you are not very careful.
