Topsail Canvas


By appointment only.

Topsail Canvas was born in 1991 when a local conference needed simple canvas bags for their event. Martha and Maggie took up the challenge. Their exploration of different size bags, pockets, drawstrings and zippered tops led to more bag styles. Our work was juried into the New Brunswick Craft Council in 1994. Kate joined the sewing team in 2002 and Sadie began sewing bags in 2003. New designs continued to evolve as we experimented and customers requested additional features. Kate and Martha always sewed on treadle powered industrial machines; their homes being off the grid. We worked out of our homes until 2012 when we completed a new studio building in Sadie’s yard. Currently, Topsail Canvas is run by Sadie Gagner, the daughter of founder, Martha Bryan.
