I have sewn curtains in the past, but never grommet curtains. It doesn't look to hard, but I am a perfectionist when it comes to sewing and was wondering if anyone had any tips. Does it matter whether they are plastic or metal grommets? Does anyone know where I can buy them rather reasonably? Thanks, Janet

The metal ones require a grommet setter to crimp the metal. The plastic ones just snap together after you cut out the circle. I believe Joann Fabric carries them. Or you can mail order them through Rowley ( I buy all of my curtain supplies from them.
