We use a local canvas shop to repair our tents and replace zippers. We
get our zippers from Johnson & Johnson, who make Eureka tents. They're
located in New York. I don't have an address or phone number with me, but
I'll get it and post it ASAP.
The canvas shop we deal with specializes in boating. We approached the
owner several years ago, he agreed to do the work - but has yet to accept
any money from us. We supply the materials, he supplies the labor and
equipment. We've presnted him with a thank you plague, and each year give
him a couple of the Christmas wreaths the troop sells.
You shouldn't have any trouble finding someone in your area to do this for
