Melanie made several canvas items for my 28' O'day that I recently purchased, including a new UV cover for the jib sail,  mainsail cover, new bimini and bimini boot, and a small compainionway cover.  All of it turned out great and I'm so hoappy with how my boat looks now!


Melanie is definitely the person you should hire to handle any canvas work for your boat.  She created a custom cover for my Stingray to keep it protected from the sun.  Melanie took the time to listen to me and understand exactly what I wanted, and the results are fantastic.  Thank, Melanie!


I bought my pontoon boat about a year ago and had Melanie replace the old worn out bimini top with a new one. Boy, what a difference! The top looks great and was definitely a worthwhile upgrade.  Melanie is great to work with.  She ensured the color choices were discussed in detail.  She communicated well and delivered on time. The quality and fit look amazing. I would absolutely recommend her.

I run Central Tennessee Marine Service in Hermitage, and I hired Melanie to make a full cover for my Sunesta power boat.  I was very pleased with the quality of work and have already given her hame out to other customers needing canvas work.

The custom dodger Melanie created for my sailboat looks fantastic and fits great.  I'm exceptionally happy with the dodger and the price was very reasonable.

It was a pleasure having Melanie complete the canvas work for my Harris deck boat.  The bimini and cover she made for the boat have a fantastic fit.  If you're looking for great custom canvas at a good price, you should definitely contact Melanie.  


Melanie made a cover for my SeaRay power boat, and it looks great!  Everything was completed on time and with professionalism.  Thank, Melanie!


I became aware of Melanie’s services when I had Sailors Moving Sailors transport my sail boat from New York to the Nashville area. The transport went seamlessly, and Melanie has created a couple of great items for me over the last few years – with real attention to quality and style. She made me a custom bimini frame and canvas for my sailboat, and also made a great cover for my 8’ hard dinghy. I’m thoroughly satisfied with all services from Melanie and Sailors Moving Sailors. –Steve O.

Having Melanie make a new, high quality bimini for our pontoon boat was stress free we couldn't be happier with the results.  Melanie kept in communication with us throughout the process and did a fantastic job.  I would definitely use her services again. 


I’ve been sailing my J-30 in the Nashville area for a few years now, and I was thrilled to find a sail repair shop here in the local area.  Melanie is 100% professional and reliable.  She replaced the luff tape on my genoa, and the bolt rope on my main.  The work was completed in the time frame she said it would be, and all the repairs turned out great.  Don’t hesitate to call Melanie for any of your sail repair needs!

I heard of Melanie's excellent reputation for sail repair and canvas work, so when I purchased a new (used) sailboat with a heavily damaged head sail, I traveled all the way from Alabama to have her repair it and install a new UV cover. She also repaired a companionway drop cover for me. Melanie kept in communication with me throughout the process, accomplished the work on time, and for a reasonable cost.  They  both turned out great!  I would definitely trust her again with any sail or canvas work I need."

I recently purchased a sailboat and wanted to really make it look nice. I asked Melanie to make new cockpit cushions and to re-do the interior cushions. She helped me pick out fabrics and colors that really made a difference - the boat looks fantastic. Thanks for the great work!

We lived in the Nashville area for years enjoying our 1988 Catalina 27 sailboat on a local lake. Just like anything on a sailboat, canvas items and sails occasionally need to be repaired and replaced. All of our canvas items were showing age and needed to be repaired or replaced. It didn’t take us long to be informed by other sailors that Sailors Moving Sailors, a sailboat transporting company with an excellent reputation, also offers custom canvas and sail repair services. They have over time replace our numerous worn out canvas items including – bimini, cabin cover, binnacle cover, and sail cover. They also repaired and restitched my sails on several occasions. Most recently they transported my boat to Southport, N.C. Sailors Moving Sailors are terrific people and I wholeheartedly recommend using their canvas and transport services. -Jerry R

We decided up update our Catalina 22 with completely new cushions. We looked into buying them from Catalina, but found they were quite expensive and very limited on color choices. Looking further, we found Melanie with Sailors Moving Sailors and discovered she could offer a reasonable price for the same cushions and use any fabric we chose. She made a full set of interior cushions and cockpit cushions - new foam and all. We chose a multi-colored striped fabric for her to work with. The end result was exactly what we wanted - a unique and bright interior. All the stripes matched up where they should, and the cushions fit just right. I highly recommend Melanie’s services."

I would highly recommend Melanie for any canvas or sail repair projects.  Melanie has skillfully and affordably accomplished multiple custom items for me over the years - sail repairs, custom hatch covers, life line covers, cushions, sheet bags, winch covers....and more. You can trust Melanie to do the job right."


I brought two main sails to Melanie that needed some rips reparied and hardware replaced.  She did an excellent job in fixing everything, and even identified some damage that I wasn't aware of and fixed that, too.  She's very professional and has very reasonable pricing.  I would trust her with my sails again anytime. 


I asked Melanie to create a custom cabin cover for my Catalina 22.  She did a fantastic job.  The cover looks great and is made to last.


I ordered a custom bimini from Melanie for my pontoon boat.  I was extremely pleased with the quality and the price of what I received.  Also, the color she selected was a perfect match with my new upholstery.  Great work.
