Re: Good prices on Sunbrella?

If you're going to invest your time and effort into doing your own canvas work, why take a chance on some unknown product. The savings are mostly in your sweat equity. Products like Sunbrella have been proven over time and are worth a few bucks more than brand X although some of their prices are out of line with reality. Same with sailcloth. Why skimp on something on which you're going to depend?
