Farewell, Roman Shades T-Ring Gun
The Roman Shades T-Ring Gun was a staple in many tool boxes
for the artists who made Roman Shades. Many couldn’t live without it. It was a tool that inserted a plastic rings
into Roman Shades and saved the sew-ist many hours of sewing rings by hand.
The first T-Ring gun was made in the United States with
metal gears. It was substantial and sturdy.
But, the factory burned down one fateful day and the owners decided not
The Rowley Company, an upholstery and hardware company in
North Carolina had this beloved tool made in China. And, for a while, the
drapery world rejoiced. But, the new
T-Ring gun was made with plastic internal parts and was not as rugged as the
original tool and had quality issues.
And for that reason, the Rowley Company has pulled the T-Ring Gun, the
rings and needles off the market.
It is with great sadness that I tell this story
to my customers who have been frantically searching for the last T-Ring Gun,the last needle, and the last ring. I have sold every gun in my inventory, down to the last ring.
I will continue to search for a product like this. I will list it when I find something like it. Until then, have a look through my website and contact me with questions or suggestions for products you would like for me to carry. I would be happy to be your 5-star supplier!
All the best,
