Before we get started, please take a moment to familiarize yourself with this fact about Fabric:
Many Fabrics have a distinct and noticeable “grain”. This term refers to the heavy threads that run across the face of the Fabric, from edge to edge. It is also known as the “weft.”
In keeping with draperies and wall coverings, it is generally preferred to have the “grain” running from left to right on framed pictures, rather than up and down.
--- Please keep this in mind when ordering fabric because a tall piece will require more fabric than a wide piece of the same size. Of course, if the fabric is smooth and tightly woven and the grain is not noticeable, this instruction does not apply.
