Anyone know what works for patching holes in canvas?

Duct tape.
There are some canvas tent repair kits out there, which work pretty well. You can find them in the camping section of many stores. They come with a needle and thread, fabric and glue. Also, most of the tent and awning stores offer repair services, so if you aren't a master tailor that may be the way to go.

Darn mice huh?

I've patched my canvas holes with matching canvas cut to size cemented down with vinyl cement.

Good luck!

Something that an Iron Worker told/showed me was to go to a store like Runnings (or similar) and in there canvas/tarp section you should be able to find a product with a name something like "Tear Grease". It's in a squeeze bottle. You just cut a patch of canvas a little bigger than the hole and spread (work) the tear grease into both pieces of material. Does an excellent job, heck, it works great on jeans, carharts, etc. Just make sure that after you goop up the pieces and stick together that you place the canvas on some newspaper or plastic so you don't stick more than the patch and hole in canvas together. Beats a needle and thread any day!! Good Luck!

    • The US doesn't have state controlled media at all. Well, didn't have. Now we have Bannon and Breitbart in the White House, and of course at Trump's press conference there was only a single reserved seat: front and center for Breitbart.   As far as psychological manipulation: you are subjected to it daily, but usually for commercial purposes. You can easily go the whole day without seeing anything politics related, but good look avoiding advertising for a day.
    • Worst buy I ever bought. I sold it the next week. I like 13 products but not this line of products
    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.
