  • For two years, the Spirit of Springfield has been singing the praises of Leisure Time Canvas. You and your staff have always been quick to respond and to repair the Bright Nights Snow Globe. This is important as it is only used 38 nights during the holiday season.Thank you, your staff and Leisure Time Canvas for your outstanding work. You have repaired the Bright Nights Snow Globe more times than we care to count. Each time, you returned an improved product.

  • "Just a brief note to let you know what a pleasure it was to have Charlie and his crew here at our house to rehang our awning brackets, remove canvas for repair. They were very thorough and professional. My husband Max and I want to thank them and you for the prompt repair and re-hanging of our canvas awning. Looks great, we washed + cleaned the awning brackets. It all looks brand new."

  • "The re-stenciled awnings look great. Good job, thank you very much."

  • "Burvee and I want to thank you so much for your diligence and patience in helping us find the perfect canvas canopy for our deck at our Lake house. We realize that this was a very difficult installation given the constraints that you had to comply with so that none of our windows would be obscured. We also want to compliment you on the professional workman that did the labor on our project. Charlie, Scott and Jeremiah worked very hard to complete our installation. They had great ideas to make this work and we really appreciate their fine work. Also, Carol has been so gracious in every conversation that we have had were her. Burvee and I are very happy to recommend your company to anyone who would like to speak to us about our experience with you or would like to come to our home to view your fine work. I know that Charlie took some pictures of our installation but I thought you may want some more so I sent you ones that I took. If you need any additional, we would be happy to oblige.Please let us know when the remote and the cord come in. Again, thank you. Burvee and I are so pleased."
