I am making curtains for a clubhouse where music of all types is played.
Any thoughts on the best lining to use to help minimise the echo ?

Hi Lindsey, I've only worked with cotton and polycotton linings before but would have thought the heaviest linings would dampen echo best - maybe blackout linings?
A better option would be to ensure that the main fabric is heavy.
If the main curtain fabric has not been chosen already, I'd recommend chenille - I have that in my lounge and we noticed a big difference when the curtains were hung.
If the main fabric has already been chosen and it is not heavy, then I would interline the curtains - I think that would have a bigger impact than the lining fabric used.

You could use and interlining .This sits between the lining and the fabric and would be the best bet .
I had a curtain making business and this is what I used in such instances .

Would you be getting the materials flameproofed ?
I never knowingly cause trouble !

I would get some that are very thick. Perhaps if you can fit it an actual foam square or rectangle pad that you can stuff in you window would work great. http://www.claremontasphalt.com.au

I think you should go for thermal lining. Its best and long lasting.
