Have been looking forever for this type of canvas and in this size. Price was right and service was great including sending me samples of a number of similar canvas.
I don't have an industrial sewing machine but was able to sew this material on my Brother just fine. So nice to get it preshrunk so I didn't have to mess with washing it first--and it is so nice and straight it was easy to sew very long panels. Haven't tried it outside yet but plan to hang my awning up from May-September so we'll see!
This was a great canvas. Other than a smell, I was pleased with the way it handled. I made a cage cover and had no problems sewing the seams and assembling it.
