Craft Expo: Pipe and Drape, Tent and Table Rental FAQ


How do I rent pipe and drape?
Pipe and Drape may be ordered online at when you purchase your booth or at any point until June 23. We will tally the requests, and if necessary, put you in touch with General Rental (Ed W.) who will contact you directly by phone to discuss any custom configurations.

Can I pay for the rentals offline?
Although we would prefer that you order them on, you may order tables or pipe and drape by contacting Guilford Art Center and pay by either cash, check or credit card.

What color do the drapes come in?
Black, Royal Blue, Ivory/Beige, Red, White and Sea Mist Green. Please email us with a first and second choice after you purchase the pipe and drapes online:

Can I rent just pipes and not drapes?

How big are the pipes?
Pipes are 8’ feet high and 10’ long with a diameter of approximately 1.5”. If you are sewing drapes to fit, make a 2” pocket to be safe.

Do I have to put the pipes together?
No, General Rental will assemble your pipe and drape set up for you. They fit together with a hook and slot, and can be taken apart to slide drapes onto the pipes.

Do the pipes have a base?
Yes, the pipes have a 1’ square flat steel base at the bottom for stability.

What time will my rental materials be delivered to my tent?
We are planning to have pipe and drape set up during the day on Thursday, July 13.

How do I rent a table?
Tables may also be ordered on at any time before June 23. Tables will be delivered to your booth by Guilford Art Center staff.
