Re-string them yourself.

X2 on restringing them yourself. Pretty easy actually. I brought a piece of the cord to get the right diameter to a fabric store and they had it. I used the drawings O.C. provided above to do mine years ago. Might as well learn how because you might need to do it again. Here's some links for you:

If the shade falls by itself, the string tension is to loose. Each string is attached to the wall on a plastic thimble/spool. Loosen the thimble/spool screw slightly and turn the thimble (or spool) 1/4 turn in the direction which tightens the string. Then tighten the mounting screw of the thimble. This will provide the resistance to keep the shade up. Repeat an additional 1/4 turn if you want more resistance.

The shade pulled my thimble right out of the wall, it's only 1/8" thick. had to move it over an 1"
