I would assume any fabric store would have burlap – Joann’s, Hobby Lobby, etc.  That’s probably where I’d start.  If it were me, and I had to make that many table runners by hand, I’d use the no-sew stuff that you iron onto the seam instead of sewing it by hand.  Or use a machine.

We are doing burlap table runners too, and have 23 6ft tables to outfit. Believe it or not, we are getting our fabric from Joann’s. The fabric is $2.99/yard, and then Joann’s always has that 40% off coupon. It comes out to be pretty cheap.

A girlfriend of mine is doing the same thing.  WE found it from denverfabrics.com for $2.50/yard, but its an apolstry bolt, so you can get two runners width wise.  it makes it half as expensive as walmart!

I’m doing a similar thing, and found it for $1.80/yard online, here.  That’s what I’m ordering.

I feel like this is a dumb question, but is all burlap the same? Do they come in different weights / thickness or differences is how tight the weave is?   We’re considering going for a DIY burlap runner as well, but I’m wondering if I should be aware of different types of burlap I might end up with if ordering online.

I have a super small wedding budget.  I too would love to have burlap runners.  I found some bulk material at Uline.  http://www.uline.com/BL_227/Burlap-Bags

Has anyone ordered from here??

The rental company we’re going through has them for 3 dollars a piece…it would be slightly cheaper to make them, but I really don’t have the time…

I also am looking for burlap table runners, I love the ones with lace on the ends. How much have people been paying for their burlap? What type is best for the runners?

@Mander:  I will be purchasing the burlap from Uline in the next week or so. 

I realize that the burlap will not be the highest quality.  I am working with a $4,000 total wedding budget, so the Uline price is right for me.

Where are others buying their burlap?

Thanks
