Best products for re-waterproofing bimini's etc

Picked up a 'new' used boat. The bimini's and a cockpit tent for it have been sitting in a garage for a long time. They are in very good physical condition, but when I had them up in the rain on a recent trip, I discovered rain came through them - not in torrents, but at an unacceptable level - drops at the seams, and occasional spatter elsewhere. Not sure what the fabric is, but feels like a light canvas. What have forum members found to be most effective product for restoring watertight performance? And where do you get it most economically?
In advance, thanks for your thoughts and experience.
