Ripped the Mainsail

Mainsail got caught on a spreader while taking it down on my first unsupervised voyage due to not having the boom sheeted over the centerline of the boat while taking down the mainsail - Didn't ruin the trip though - we had a wonderful sail with the family for the first time out alone - a long-time dream come true.
I'd like to patch the sail and use this one while going through this time of expensive learning curves. I have read that you can glue a sail patch over a rip with marine 5200 adhesive - but where can I get a 1foot patch? Please advise.
