    Hi Stephanie,

    Do you mean that heavy, weather and sun resistant canvas that's used on outdoor umbrellas?

    I found some under the brand name of Sunbrella for a replacement awning I made last year. Calico Corners had it for $22(?) per yard. I also found some at a local fabric outlet store at $11/yard. I can get you the number of the local outlet store if you want to try mail-ordering from them.

    Calico Corners has a web site that might help you in finding a close by store:

    hope this helps,

      *Sunbrella is the best out door fabric. High UV. You will need to use a high and heavy UV thread. It is used for canvas covers on boats and the large out door umbrellas. If you are talking about the mesh stuff that lawn furniture cushions are made of, that is Textiline, Sunsure,or Phyfertex. All the above products are durable for outdoor use for 5 years. Check Marine Canvas stores and awning companys for supplies.
