Working with Sunbrella Marine and Awning Fabric

September 3, 2018

Regardless of where you live, now is always the perfect time to make repairs to your existing canvas or bring to life the hundreds of canvas ideas you come up with over the summer. If ever there was a time to sew…it’s now!

We often get questions from beginner sewers (and new to Sunbrella sewers!) about working with Sunbrella’s Marine & Awning Fabric. There are a million different ways you could use Sunbrella, but the basics are always the same. From marking and cutting to stitch length and seaming, our new Working with Sunbrella Marine Grade & Awning Video sheds some light on the basics!

Sit back, grab a hot drink (I particularly enjoy hot apple cider), and check out these great tips for working with Sunbrella fabric.


We love Sunbrella fabric and choose to sell it for a lot of reasons. Here’s what you should know about Sunbrella and a little bit about the different Sunbrella fabric collections.
