We have been planning on a similar project. I have been advised that
there might be an old parachute that had been converted to a tipi cover
around somewhere. If it doesn't turn up I will start looking into sources
of surplus parachutes or preferably sailcloth. Some of the local military
bases are preparing to close and have been giving away surplus government
property to local governments. I am hoping they will let the non-profits
have the next crack at whatever is left. Just think of all the tents!!!
Acres of canvas for the asking. Maybe a Troop transport or two.
