  • Does anyone know where I can get a piece of sofa foam from in the LG area ?

  • We ordered from Textile Sur in San Juan (on the main road).
    Took a few days to arrive from somewhere else on the island. Good luck.

  • Yes - that's the only place in the area that I thought would be appropriate to try.  On previous visits i'm aware they have none in the shop but I could order some I guess.  Since my post I have (via the net)found a shop in Adeje that sells sofa/seat foam - will try them as well.  Thanks

  • there is a place in Vagilia Park that does upholestry - so thay may have off cuts. Also there used to be  an upholsterer in San Juan as well. There is a lady who does alterations in a garage on Crab Island and she also gets foam, infact she had a roll of it when I passed the other day as I want my dogs bed re-foamed. If you know the size she may order you a piece

  • Thanks tlc - that's really helpful - could you be a little more specific as to where this Crab Island garage foam lady is ? - as there are a few garages on Crab Island.  An offcut is exactly what i'm looking for - will check out Vigilia Park as well, although I cant recall seeing a shop in the arcade that deals with foam or the like !!

  • The shop in Vag Park is actually in one of the streets just above, not sure if it's the 1st or 2nd street, they have advertising boards outside saying what they do.

    I saw the garage lady today and she does have foam and can also order it. She is more or less opp the gravel path that runs along side Tipsy Terrace, there is a Telefonica phone booth more or less outside her garage and the door is always open - hope this helps.

  • Any update on the sofa foam?

    Certainly the most exciting thing to have been happening over the last few days...

  • Well, just to keep things lively (!) we went to see Diane the foam lady in Crab Island two days ago to get the frill of our blind repaired and she did it whilst we waited for such a reasonable price.  Any reupholstery, curtain making or anything needing a sewing machine she does extremely well. So keep the thread going. Sad aren't we ???

    Thanks for that info Angie - firstly i'm delighted you have told me her name as I was expecting to knock on a few garage doors asking whether the "Crab Island Foam Lady" lives there.  At least I will be able to ask for her by name.  I will give you an update in a few weeks, as i'm over in LG next week - and i'm starving hungry   ;D
