2  TPS Message Boards (requires ID & Password to post) / In Search Of.. / Red velour drape needed on: February 23, 2012, 03:57:12 PM
We are looking for a red velour drape with dimensions that are roughly 16' h x 19' w for our upcoming production of The Mystery of Edwin Drood that will be staged at the Intiman in April.  The drape could be with fullness, austrian style, or just a big ole' piece of red fabric we could drape, swag, gather, etc.  Larger would work if we can play with the way it is hung.  Borrow, take off your hands or potential rental.
