Having built my first yurt frame many years ago it has been in storage as I have been unable to manage sewing the cover, walls etc. I am staffing a kids camp in the summer as a volunteer and would love to be able to use the Yurt, so Iam hoping someone out there can help me make the skin, I will fund the canvas etc. As a woodworker myself perhaps we could trade skills ? who knows ?? I look forward to hearing from anyone who can help, and I am based near Royston & Cambridge

I am a good year too late but if you didn't get this project accomplished I could definitely help as I have made a yurt and I have an industrial sewing machine. I can point you in the direction of some good canvas also if you aren't sure about where to get it.........cheers

This is a good place to get the materials:
This site has the instructions to build a Geodesic dome cover.  It could be adapted for a Ger
Here is another site
The other links in the previous post are also very good sites.

This instructable has some instructions for making a cover as part of the overall instructable.

this is a free copy of a book on building your own yurt.

This page for making medieval-style tents has some great sewing advice.
