I saw this really neat 'disappearing' design wall at a recent quilt show. It consisted of a thin fuzzy backing material (the white backing on a vinyl table cloth) mounted to a pull-chain-operrated (as opposed to a spring loaded) roller shade tube. The entire roller shade assembly (side gear assembly and top brackets was mounted inside a valance-style box which could be wall or ceiling mounted. When not in use, the 'curtain' can be rolled up and out of site, saving wall and floor space for shelving.
I have heard bad things about the vinyl table cloth backing material--that it isn't really that 'sticky.' Can anyone suggest another material to test that could be mounted to a roller tube and rolled up and down without jamming?
