Need inexpensive canvas work on Long Island

The top of a salon cushion need to be replaced. The canvas shop at the marina wants $395 to do the work. Yikes!!! It's only about 4' x 2' in size.

Also the dock monkey's stepped on my folded dodger last fall when they moved the boat to another slip, in cold weather. (No evidence here, just the only logical explanation.) This tore two Eisenglass windows (20"x28" and 20"x48"). The cost to replace them is estimated to be $300.

I can easily dirve these to another canvas shop. Does anyone know of a good canvas shop on Long Island that doesn't charge so much?

Regards,
Brad

Brad,
Are those quotes from Brewer's or the little canvas shop outside Brewer's on Shore Rd.?
I used that canvas shop for a new sail cover about 5 years ago. Good product and convenient but I would not call them cheap exactly. It can't hurt to shop around a bit though.

How about an auto upholstery shop nearby? Usually much less expensive. Sometimes you have to supply the marine grade material.

I've had zippers installed, seams redone, etc. They keep asking, "what is this thing?" and I just tell them it is a cover and they just sew it up.

Brad-
A little out of your way but you might try McCoy Manufacturing Corporation -6914 49th Avenue, Maspeth NY (718) 458-5800.
I mention them because back in the 90's I need some extensive upholstery work and found they were possibly the last actual auto upholstery shop left in all of the metro nyc area. Rates literally half of the few other places that were in the yellow pages, top quality work done on premises. If they have a fabric in stock that comes close enough for you, it should be a piece of cake for them to install one new panel in the cover.
It's been a while...but they earned a place on that Real Short List, and I'd shopped out to Nassau and Westchester counties without finding anything competitive.
the alternative would be to try some of the fabric shops down on Canal Street or the Lower East Side if they are still around, most of them used to refer customers to reasonable upholstery shops to make up simple cushions and bolsters. A local Fabric Barn or similar place might have some local referals for you too.

I use Sailor's Choice in Amityville. The owner (Jim) does nice work and is quite reasonable (I just picked up some repaired canvas from him this weekend).

Great responses all. (Just got back in from making the wind genny tower. It's been a lot of work. I did learn how to tap and have the whole thing bolted together.)

Looks like I have some calls to make.

Caleb - it was Capt Nunzios, inside the Brewers "compound".

Regards,
Brad
