What To Do With Unwanted Curtains?

We are replacing some of our 'made to measure' pencil pleat curtains.

In their day they cost quite a bit but we no longer want that style.

What can we do with them as it appears most charity shops aren't interested.

The condition is pretty good with little fading on the linings plus they are not some god awful pattern.

Any ideas please?

Hi, I run sewing classes for a mental health charity where we upcycle things that have been donated like old curtains. There might be a similar project in your area you could maybe donate them

Ask your local schools and nurseries if they have a use for them. They might be repurposed for costumes for a school play or used in an outdoor classroom.

My children's nursery had a story room - nice big wooden shed - decorated with old curtains and cushions donated by parents and grandparents.

Some good ideas so far thank you.

As an ex Tradesman I have loads of dust sheets so don't need them for that. Plus although I currently have a skip on the drive I am loathe to just sling them.

At worst rag bag for charities, they get to weigh in. Womens refuges tend to need this kind of thing. If they dont go on eBay you could try freecycle

I belong to a sewing group and we have just started to be involved in making cushions, quilts etc. for young people leaving care homes and starting out on their own. Might be something similar in Toms area. Could get lots of cushion covers from curtains.
