Work Party Update – 12th May 2015

Tonight we worked on the half curtain. We threaded a rope from one side to the other so that when pulled, the curtain would open and close. With the first attempts to do this the effort pulling the rope proved that considerable effort was required. So much so that one of the large split rings failed.   We replaced all four rings with stronger shackles. This worked well and the curtains open and close well. Some effort is required as the curtains are heavier than the old ones. All four of the curtains have been pinned up and now require to be sewn by hand or machine sewn.

Next week we will tackle the rope work on the ¾ curtain.
