i would suggest cutting the holes by hand with scissors, and using this tool to install the grommets. I know I could make it work. If you are handy and creative, it should work for you.

If I worked there, I would sure do it for you. Sadly, this is a project that will take way more time than they are willing to give you. The installation is really quite simple. One lays the area of the grommet receiving item that needs a hole, on the hard wooden block, positions the cutter on it, and WHACK goes the weasel, er, I mean hammer. I remember having a few trepidations about doing it the first time. But, I found that it was easy...and shall I say fun? Nah. But there was a satisfaction that accompanied the successful completion. I am hoping that hd means Home Depot. The only other hd that comes to mind doesn't sell grommets and charges way to much for their stuff. Home Depot has consumer friendly prices.

How thick can the fabric be for the grommet to go together.

gromet kit is easy to use
Purchased this gromet kit so I could use bungee cords to secure a chaise lounge cover which the wind liked to remove. The instructions were easy to follow. Have only installed four, but I'm glad to have the remaining kit for future projects.
