I'd like to sew up some nice table coverings, but am I have a few questions....
1.  Do you or have you sewn the skirt to the top? or is yours two separate pieces?
2.  Do you have different table coverings for different sizes of tables offered at various shows or is there some way to adjust the covering to the various sizes of tables?

I"d like to put a tone on tone border on the bottom of the skirt .  I think it would look nice but not distract from the products (Tshirt quilts, memory bears, upcycled clothing .. )

Thoughts and guidance would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks!

I am not a sewer by any means.  I use flat sheets from Wal-mart.  My product looks best on dark colored background so I use a dark brown sheets.

As far as fitting different sized tables at different venues... where I live, south Louisiana, you are lucky, very lucky if they provide tables.  If the organizer provides them, they usually charge for them.   After renting tables 2-3 times you could have bought the tables.  I bought my own tables and bought flat sheets to work with what I have.

I have seen someone use a table "topper" that was flat with what looked like elastic around the edge to hold it on ... this topper did not hang down.  They had another part that had velcro on it to hold it around the edge of the table.  It looked good to me.  It is a matter of what works for you.

Thank you ! 
So far the shows I've been to are small local ones and they provide an 8 foot table.  I used a piece of linen yardage that was 60 inches wide for those, but I'd like something with more transportability KWIM? 

I really like the idea of the table topper with the velcro on skirt! 
Thanks again Smiley
