Recommendation for Canvas Work, Victoria, BC

My bimini,connector and doger all have sections of thread that are disintegrating and I would like to get them re-stitched. I am looking for recommendations for outfits in the Victoria / Sidney, BC area that are good and fairly priced for this sort of work.

Make sure they use sunbrella. Everything else fades.

Re: Recommendation for Canvas work, Victoria, BC

I was not planning on using special thread because the canvas probably only has 3 or 4 years of life left in it. Unfortunately though I have not yet received a single recommendation and I detest opening the yellow pages and tossing a coin.

Re: Recommendation for Canvas Work, Victoria, BC

I misread your post. I thought that you were asking for someone to make new cloth for you.

There are a couple of decent boat builders in the area; I would call them to get a recommendation. Or alternatively, call a local chandler and get them to make a recommendation.
