Hi Guys,

I am looking for a friendly canvas worker in or around Adelaide for a couple of projects I have - Basically an awning/tent that needs to be made up.

Have spoken to a couple of the larger canvas places but am really looking for a smaller/home operator that has lower overheads and is able to spend a bit more time on the job...

Anyone know of any good canvas tradesman in or around Adelaide that might be operating from home / semi retired etc?


Thanks


Dave

Have you tried Sar Major just off South Rd? I think it's in St Mary's. It's not a small backyard factory and they may be worth a try.

I appreciate the replys so far guys, but I really am not looking for the mainstream commercial guys. Cameron, Sar Major, Universal etc etc are all easy to find.

I am looking for the smaller operator.

Candy Canvas in Tintinara are highly regarded in this area. I know they are not close to Adelaide but maybe worth a look.

Depends how close it has to be to qualify as "around Adelaide".

Here in Kadina, we have a bloke who does excellent work... Kevin Slattery of "Canvas Concepts". Give him a call if you like on 8821 1513. We're only an hour or so from Adelaide; could be worth a drive. If you are coming up this way, let me know and we may be able to meet-up etc.

Cheers
