Replace fabric in cellular shades?
have a number of fabric cellular (also known as honeycomb) shades in my house. They are single celled and there are tears in the fabric of the majority of the shades due to age, and after many years in a country house, they are dirty. The mechanics of the shades work just fine, but I would like to replace the fabric. Any ideas?

You can't, must just order new
I agree with Kelli. I can’t imagine how.
Select Blinds has them for about $15 each. I’d bet there are even better rices out there, tho I’ve dealt with this company.
Your alternative is to take them apart and experiment, using their hardware, and making a fabric shade, maybe like a Roman shade. If you’re going to toss them anyway, what have you got to lose?
best of luck with this.
The thickness and density of fabric in cellular shades depends on price and brand. However, unfortunately, this style of window coverings does have a 'shelf life' that eventually expires.
Time to get new ones.
If you honeycomb blinds are fabric, I have washed those in the tub and bleached them to get them back to white for clients. As to tears, you could try some iron-on interface from the fabric store..... they have many variations of fabric density and weaves to choose from to try and match the blind fabric. You could also try some stitch witch on the backside and iron the top.
Hi Kay, you can buy the fabric at Home Depot and many other places, so it must be possible to to replace the fabric on the shades. Hope this helps you out,
