Do you need a fabric hot knife or grommet holes?

If you spend time around boats and the water, sooner or later you need sunbrella marine canvas and grommets.
If you're a DIY type, here's a tip or two.

my solution>> 100 watt soldering gun $10.00 --off ebay

Great idea I took my old pistol type weller and made a nylon rope cutter. I just cut the soldering tip and silver soldered a piece of steel between the two tips. Cost nothing but a little time.
