WORLD RECORD! The largest and heaviest single drape that we have ever made was for the Guiness Book Of World Records? Event producer, Steve Solomon of Upstage Right selected Sew What? Inc. to create the giant terrycloth towel for the record-breaking event. Measuring in at an incredible 131 feet by 78 feet, the towel displayed giant graphics for sponsor Nabisco Toasted Chips. With over 1,200 yards of fabric and 7,300 feet of thread, the towel literally covered the sands on Hermosa’s beach from strand to ocean. At a whopping 1500 lbs, the drape was moved with industrial forklifts to get it out of the sewing room, into the truck, and then onto the sand!  Want to read the press release?
