I am in need of a wingback recliner to be recovered and have the fabric (Sunbrella). Is there someone on the island that any of you can recommend? Thank you.

Chap on middle street opposite Lourdes shop and the Papuseria is good but not great with Sunbrella, done numerous for me. Also chap selling pans etc at old Dready's bar near DJ's in Boca, his father does upholstery.
Good luck.

Kate at Sew What knows how to work with Sunbrella. Check to see if she does this kind of upholstery?

Kate's been abfab with the stuff we've brought her. The only thing she couldn't do for us was a large sun umbrella that had lost its fabric long ago. Without the fabric to act as a pattern it would have been folly. Kate's been doing this long enough to know what sails and what fails...now i just have to learn that.

We had Futon cushions made with Sunbrella By Kate @ Sew What and she did a GREAT Job. Would recommend Her Highly!!!

Wonderful as the chair still has fabric on it that she can use for a pattern. Thank you for her name. Would you mine PM me how to contact her?

I emailed her and after receiving her quote, which was from $1,000bz to $12,000bz and yes I even verified it, I think I'll keep looking. She may be great, but the span between is a little more than I can handle. Looks like she has enough work already to write back and give this kind of a quote. No worries, for that money, I'm thinking of going to Hummingbird and get a chair for $6,000bz.

Sunbrella isn't cheap and if you're ordering a pattern that they don't stock you're going to have to pay for a whole roll.
