Use a new needle appropriate for canvas and test sew with scraps of the same canvas.  Check the Sailrite site for tutorials.

On second thought, I would cut pieces long enough to cover the chairs and put bungee cords around them.    Get a pair of wallpaper shears from a home improvement store and don't use your good sewing scissors.
