I tried Falcon East(FE14300-4) Antique Satin Bone but I need a width of about 64" as the customer does not want a seam. Any useful suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Tim
 
Sing to the customer, "You can't always get what you wan-n-t..."

<font size=1>oh, sorry, you said useful suggestions</font size>

You might try a wholesaler for drapery fabric: I know they used to come 96" and antique satin is from ancient times so it may still be around...kind of like some of us.
 
"Let your fingers do the walking...."

Give area fabric shops and upholstery shops a call. I think our local Joann's has rolls of fabric that are at least that wide.

I also did a google search for fabric 64" wide and came up with quite a few hits.

Good luck

"Ok Mrs. Jones, we can't get an antique satin bone that long. You'll have to settle for a seam in your bone or no bone at all, that's the way it is!"

Now THAT makes perfect sense to me.<a href="http://plugin.smileycentral.com/http%253A%252F%252Fwww.smileycentral.com%252F%253Fpartner%253DZSzeb008%255FZNxmk788YYUS%2526i%253D36%252F36%255F1%255F27%2526feat%253Dprof/page.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/36/36_1_27.gif"

Tim, We at Frank's have FE14300-4 much wider than that. In fact I believe it comes about 150yards wide; but it only comes aobut 54" high. How high did you need it?

Substitute a pongee silk bone and run horizontal. The pongee has no dicernable grain. Or is this something larger than 54"x54"?

Antique Satins all come from the same mill and vendor and are the same width. Unless your customer wants to pay for a splice reweave... Last time I had one done was about 20 years ago and it was only about $70 a foot . . probably wouldn't be much over $200/ft these days....

Pongee.
