I am a retired teacher, very active in our local historical society and our community is celebrating it's bicentennial this June. As part of the committee, I would like to offer to make the patriotic bunting for our celebration. I have found the red, white and blue by the yard at a fairly reasonable price, but have tried all over the net to find directions. It seems so simple, but everything I've tried doesn't look right. Also I need to have a guess-timate on the yardage to buy. Help! can anyone steer me down the right red, white and blue road? Thanks!!
