Hi Sandi! Thanks so much for asking. I use a special little object called a "Tenter Hook". I buy them from Rowley Company in NC. They are a drapery supply company. But if you don't need to buy those in bulk like I do (it is an L shaped, brass piece that is pointy on one end so you can nail it into the wall or woodwork and place a drapery pin right on top of it.... or if I don't have one with me at the time of the install... I also have used a small, thin nail that has enough of a head on it that the drapery pin (hook) won't slip off when you rest it on it. I've also tried using decorative tacks but that only works if the fabric is thin. The tacks are not long enough to go through a thick valance like the one in this picture since I used an upholstery weight fabric, thick interlining (bump) and lining... and in this seam allowance would also be the bulk from the welt selvedge too. I hope this helps!. Michelle Jamieson /

Hi Helen! Unfortunately I do not have that information because this client already had the hardware, I made the window treatment and installed it on her rod. It is beautiful though isn't it? Thanks so much for your interest.
