Default Day night shades restringing

How hard is it to re-string day night shades and can I buy the string locally or at a special web site?
Thanks Wheelhouse

I would look online if I were you but also I believe joannes fabrics may carry the necessary materials. It's een a while since i worked there but I worked for a van conversion co. and they used to get kits from the manufacturer. They included the string and grommets needed to restring the blinds they made. They aren't that hard to do but just time consuming. we wouldn't restring them if we could get new ones it wasn't worth it for the boss to pay the labor to do it for the price of the new ones.

If you can't find the exact same thread you need you may be able to use some carpet thread. It may be as heavy as the original.

I did most of the day/night shades in our RV. I would watch for a place that made or repaired shades and buy the string from them. The cost ran all the way from 0.07 to 0.25 a foot. When I couldn't find the right string, I tried some nylon string from the hardware store. I would dip the end into some wax from a candle or drip some was on the string so it wouldn't unravel. It all got to be such a pain that I went to Lowe's and ordered custom made shades.
