What is the horizontal and vertical pattern repeat of the "Wellington" fabric?
Marie LaHara on Feb 4, 2016
Horizontal is 6-3/4" and vertical is 10-1/2"

The Wellington pattern is 6.75" wide and 10" long. This fabric is offered in a 90" width so most tablecloths will be seamless.

Wellington is an all-over pattern; the center medallion you see in the swatch is repeated in offset horizontal rows separated by the pattern you see surrounding it. don't know if that makes sense; I've tried to attach a photo from the cloth on my table to show a larger size of the pattern, but I don't know if it will submit photo.JPG
I am looking for a white tablecloth (round) to use in a nonformal setting. I do not want one that is shiny. Suggestions? Thank you!

I bought this in ivory and think it's great. it's not the shiny material. I would recommend it for nonformal setting.

It is shiny, but not shiny like satin, it's very classy. We use them for Embassy functions and they look very attractive.

All of the damask fabrics have some shine to them it is typically the background that is shiny and the pattern that is matte. We do have other fabrics that are solid colors like the spun polyester, cottunique, and twill that are not shiny at all. Here is a link to view these fabrics: http://www.brightsettings.com/table-linens/Fabric-Samples-S5.html We can also send you fabric swatches so you can take a look at the actual fabric and color before ordering to ensure it is what you are looking for.

Brenda, as I recall, the fabric is like a lightweight damask. The way it is woven gives it a sheen to enhance the pattern. It would be too formal for your non-formal setting.

Wellington, as I recall, was like a lightweight damask and appeared to be formal. It does have somewhat of a shiny surface because of the way it is woven Would not be good for a nonformal setting.

I ordered it in gold but also didnt want it to be shiny. White could be different. I recommend ordering the sample. I did this. The pattern is a little shiny, but depending on the light in the room, it isn't too shiny.

I ordered this pattern and there is a slight sheen to it but not overly so, I also ordered the plain and it was more matt. Why don't you ask for a fabric sample..

I ordered two of these in different sizes. It isn't shiny, however, the damask pattern has a soft sheen; the background is matte white. It basically loos like a white tablecloth. If you want less formal, you may want to consider more of a geometric pattern.
I need a black square formal tablecloth for my dining room 72" ROUND table. I would like there to be a nice amount for the drop so I am hoping that a 90" square would be adequate. I never did like a round tablecloth on a round table unless it went all the way to the floor, which would not be good for my purposes. Any suggestions ? Look forward to heRing from you. Bobbie

Bobbie, I used the Wellington fabric for banners needed for our garden club's display(lined and with interfacing) You have a very wide table, so I would imagine that it will be pieced. If so, I would probably piece down the middle or on one side - your choice. Depending on how nice this is to be, I would make a regular seam pressed open for flatness, but since the fabric will fray, you may consider pinking the edges or some other finish.(what ever new machines offer) Since you will have no bias parts to hem, you will be avoiding ripples. A regular size stitch, experiment with stitch length, should be adequate. Instead of turning corners I would probably stitch the sides separately. 1/4 plus hem is adequate. Fabric should drape nicely, it is not heavy.

I wish I could help but we purchased all of ours to hang right down to the floor as they are used on folding tables. All I can say is that the fabric is wonderful - washes really well - and the tablecloths are beautifully made. Good Luck!

Hi Roberta: According to my calculations, a 90" square would give you a 9" drop at four points around the table. This seems fine if you are only seating 4. I usually use a 8"-10" drop at each place setting but I normally use a round tablecloth on a round table. The Wellington fabric is very nice. It washes up stain free and wrinkle free. Good Luck with your new tablecloth.

Get an inexpensive round tablecloth in a complimentary color as well (generally add 60" to the size of your round table to get a round cloth that goes all the way to the floor) and then put the square formal cloth over it. Then you will have a cloth that goes to the floor covering the legs of the table in addition to the square over it, which is what your guests will see mostly on the top. That way the size of the square is less critical, and 90" should be fine (9 inch drop from the top of the table all around).
Valerie Paley on Dec 5, 2013
On a 72" round table the 90" square tablecloth will drape the 9" on the fullest part of the round but the four corners will drape down about 18-1/2". The 90" square in the Wellington Damask fabric will also be seamless. The 90" square is a recommended size for a 72" round table when a customer prefers to use a square tablecloth on a round table.
Eileen Douglas Staff on Dec 5, 2013
I bought the Wellington to use for a formal table setting, and it is very elegant looking. But I ordered mine with a 9 inch drop all the way around. I think your 90 in square is going to leave you short in areas and long in others, try using the table size chart on the fabric page if you haven't already. Good luck on your selection, you will like the Wellington fabric.
It is impossible to tell the quality of the fabric from the website. I would have expected a little better quality for a special order. Also, the table cloth came in too long and I didn't realize that there was such a steep restocking fee. By the time I paid the re-stocking fee and the return shipping, most of my money would be forfeited.
