    Please post clear pictures showing where and how the swing seat is damaged. Then we will be able to see the style of mesh it is, and how the mesh is attached to the frame. Without knowing these particulars, it will be hard to give suggestions particular to your individual situation.

      hi flipturn,

      thanks so much for taking the time to answer my problem with the mesh swing. I have been sewing the seams together with fishing line as a way to extend the life of it but as you say, it does deteriorate. I haven't seen any of that mesh around, I remember it being used a long time ago on lawn chairs and have been looking for it here in Canada. good ideas that you gave here, thanks

    If you are in Canada, then US sources that sell the webbing might be not practical as the delivery/duty costs will offset any potential savings from doing the project yourself. (if they even deliver across the border!)

    However, I have ordered other sewing/craft supplies in bulk on ebay.ca (ebay.ca should have costs listed in Cdn $) directly from HongKong or Malaysia, with delivery to Canada. It does take a little longer to wait for your order to arrive, as most orders come over by cargo shipping, but if you can wait, then savings are way below any retail. Plus, if you are getting the webbing in large rolls, you can custom cut your pieces to fit what you are repairing, rather than trying to fit together many small pre-cut pieces, which can be ineffective and frustrating.

    You might want to check Amazon.ca as well. I am not familiar with their offerings or delivery policies, but I do know that they are building more distribution centres in Canada.

    If you have any other questions, keep asking; we are here to try to help.
