Annapolis, MD sail loft?

Does anyone have any recommendations for a sail loft in Annapolis? I'm just looking to have my genoa cleaned and was hoping someone might have some recommendations.

Thanks in advance!

Not sure whether or not they do cleaning, but I have always found Bacon and Associates really helpful (and reasonably priced).

Leith (rhymes with teeth) is the port of the City of Edinburgh in Scotland. A Leither is someone who comes from that area.

I must go down to the sea again, to the lonely sea and the sky - I left my shoes and socks there, I wonder if they're dry?

Our sails are currently at North in Annapolis getting "cleaned up" (restitching, new UV cover, reinforcement in a couple of places and a 3rd reef point). I'll let you know how they are in 2 weeks.

Thanks for the responses so far! Feels better to get personal recomendations rather than just looking through the phone book...

I just heard from North on pricing... seems reasonable for a "name brand" loft (which doesn't necessarily make them better - just means they have a name brand). For slightly under $1k they are: Fixing stitching on all needed corners on both main and genoa (3 of them need work), reinforcing the batten pockets, repairing the UV cover on the genny where it rubbed against the spreaders and the sprit, adding a second layer of sunbrella to the places where the genny rubbed, replacing all of the telltales and adding a third reef point. I think there were one or two other things they were doing too. I expected it to be higher, and I know I could have gotten it lower at a different loft - but the sails are North and I wanted to bring them home. I'll let you know what the quality is when I get them back.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

North.. Annapolis..

I've been pleased with the service from North.

I've bought 5 sails from North in 3 years. 2 had problems (not from Annapolis Loft) but the Annapolis Loft corrected them immediately. I appreciated their level of service and will give them future business.

The sails are awesome btw.

Ooooh look Trophies!
Wait.. is this my out loud voice? YAYAYAY! North = Fast

UK sails have always been a great place for me. Have bought 3 sails from them.
