For a canvas cover, I believe it is number 8 canvas. Be sure to get them to sew double seams. I've been told ordinary seams tends to come apart.
When you have the canvas cut you can also have them put in grommets. You can buy the canvas and have it sewn/cut to size.
Traditionally dojos have used sailmakers, but I've found the guys who make canvas tops for truck covers to be cheap and reliable. Check your Yellow Pages.
