Recommendation for interior cushion fabricator in Grenada or Trinidad

Presently in Grenada and are wanting to get new salon cushions done. Have looked through the threads, but can't seem to find anything specific on fabricators in either location. Like everyone, want best value but as we're hoping to keep them for 10+ years, want quality and are willing to pay the piper.

Anyone out there with first hand experience in either location that would like to share?

Thanks to all.

Cheers,
Sharna

Doesn't look like you received any answers - we're now in the same situation. Can you share your experience?

Re: Recommendation for interior cushion fabricator in Grenada or Trinidad

We had side curtains done by Carlos in Trinidad and he did a simply lousy job. Be very careful of work done in Trinidad as some is good and some is very bad. They always promise "just now" and never show up and then the stitching was not very good, the fit was off just a fraction and that fraction makes it very difficult to put them down when underway and struggle when at the dock. It got so bad with Carlos that I complained to anyone who I thought could help and no one did. I finally threatened to go to the police and claim theft as I had paid and no action. That got them finished but like much of Trini the work was second grade and we will have to have them redone this year in Turkey when we winter over there.
