    To Whom It May Concern—-

    My wife and I would like to make an awning material valance to attach to our patio aluminum awning. It will measure about 18′ across the front with each end measureing 12′ in length. The front will measure approximatel 15″ in the vertical measurement. The ends will be made to fit the slope of the awning and the bottom edge will be parallel with the ground. We would appreciate any thougth you might have relative to makin such an itme and as to how it could be attached to the aluminum awning. NOTE: The aluminum awnign consits of a “J” channel piece which acts as the frame of the awning…

    I’ll be making porch valances out of outdoor acrylic woven fabric, 2 questions:
    1. Are outdoor porch valances lined, if so what type of fabric it’s best to use for lining? I’ll be using bias binding.
    2. What type of thread is best to use as well as sewing machine needles? I’m an avid home dec sewer, but I don’t have too much expertise in porch valances.

    Thank you.
    Mrs. J. Scarola

    Hi Jeannette,

    Outdoor Valances are not lined. When choosing an outdoor acrylic, look for something that is a 9.25 oz weight per sq. yard. It should be a Marine/Awning grade fabric. Some outdoor fabrics have a softer finish which is more suitable for cushions.

    A bias binding should be fine. We use an acrylic braid.

    We use a Tenara Thread which is made by Gore. It has a lifetime warranty. You can also use a polyester thread which would be the next best outdoor thread. Choose the heaviest Poly thread available and use whichever large needle you will need to accommodate the thread size.
