Question Canvas repair

Any recommendations for a decent place to have the stitching on my mooring cover repaired around the Lake or surrounding towns?

Thanks!

Default Canvas Guys

Lots of places around...

The canvas Guy's in Gilford do all of my work! They head south in November so call them soon if you decide to use them.

+1 for Canvas Guys.

As noted, they go south in a few weeks and they will be swamped in the spring.

For economical and does all the Formula boats interior work.

He also do classic and antique cars.

He did my canvas two decades ago. Lasted longer than the factory canvas.

I've called Bev several times only to get an answering machine.

Did they close up for the season?

another vote for Tim's in Laconia. He did all the cushions on my Boston Whaler and did a great job.

Last time I called him (last Spring) I had to leave a message and he got back to me.
I assume you too, left a message?

I had some restitching work done by Village Canvas this week. Bev took care of it while I waited which was really appreciated and saved me a second trip into town. His price was very reasonable too. Its always good to have a "guy" whether its canvas work, plumbing, auto repairs etc.
