  • 301653936?profile=RESIZE_180x180Thank you, Virginia, for your review at www.artshowreviews.com.  We really appreciate your help.

  • Virginia, I forgot how much I paid per yard for the fabric, but I'm sure you can Google and find a provider. I do remember with everything included, conduit, etc it was a fraction of the cost for Flourish mesh panels.

  • Hi, Virginia.

    The mesh panels were made from Textilene #80 fabric. It comes 61" wide. You can get it from your local awning company or search for it on the internet. If you can't sew the edges, an awning company can do it and place grommets or eyelets around the perimeter. It's a great fabric and very tough. I used 3/4 inch rigid conduit for the "stay bars." You can drill through the conduit and tent legs and secure with a nut and bolt, or use conduit straps to secure the conduit to the legs. I recently cut my conduit into 5' lengths and once I hung them with plastic tie wraps I used conduit connectors to connect them. I also use tie wraps to secure the fabric to the conduit and the tent legs. You may be able to see how I configured it below. Hope this helps.
