IFAI member company Signature CanvasMakers

People who belong to the Marine Fabricators Association (MFA) are incredibly supportive and collaborative. You can go to members and ask a marine canvas- or business-related question and they’ll freely give you the answer.

We’ve toured many other MFA members’ marine canvas shops and have since incorporated different aspects of what we’ve seen into our own business. Our shop layout is a result of taking snippets of ideas from other members. For example, our tables and sewing machines are all on wheels so we can configure them in different ways depending on the demands of any given project.
