Used Sailcloth?

Does anyone know how to obtain used sailcloth, or does anyone have an old sail they're looking to get rid of? I am looking to use one for a project for my kids, though I'm unsure where to look to find one. Thanks!

There are several used sail dealers online - google used sails. Sail lofts also sell used sails. Ebay usually has some listed as well.

Try contacting a local sailing club connected with a community or university. They are frequently given "old" sails and then try to figure out what to do with them.

Excellent advice. You have both the option to get it offline or online, and in any case you can go look for and get it through some of these dealers online or just go look for it on good old ebay.
