Re: info: Seeking local source for wide canvas

Andrixos -

You sent the following to *me*, not the Atlantia list. I doubt you'll mind
my forwarding it all on.

It took 25 yards, I think, to make my 10'x10'x11' viking tent with doors. 
For a larger viking tent, I recommend a 14' or so length, which allows one
to do it in three sections of canvas (the additional foot being used in seam
allowance).  For spiffier effect, one can dye the alternating panels and
have a striped tent.
