upcylced sailcloth?

Anyone know of anywhere that is selling old sailcloth, or offcuts? I'm having no luck with my google-fu, and I thought I'd ask here before I start emailing sailmakers. Thanks folks!

Australian Secondhand Sailing Stuff on Facebook might have something.
This makes me the first man to climb Mount Everest backwards, without oxygen...or even a jumper.

You can get small bits of sail cloth from this mob. I got spinnaker material and made two kayak sails for under $50 each including all the chandelry items. Super helpful if you give them a call.
