    Most PVC pipe is made to be somewhat flexible to make it eaier to install. I think the closet dowel would be a better choice. It is made to withstand more weight. Also a curtain rod would hold the weight. What an honor to have the quilt placed is such a great spot! Congratulations! and good job.

    I just found that out. :!: :D This is a learning experience for me! If we use monofilament line to hang it , how do we construct the sleeve in order to have support in the middle? Do I use a split sleeve or thread the line through the sleeve? I know nothing about hanging quilts so any advice is appreciated.

    I think the split sleeve would be best. If you try to sew the monofiliment through the sleeve, it might make the quilt hang wonky.

    I have stopped at the customer service counter and asked if they could kindly send someone to aisle ..... so that I could be helped by someone with knowledge in that area. Sometimes I even get lucky and there will be a contractor in the aisle who does not mind answering a few questions, too! :)
