FINISHING ORNAMENTS / HANGING SIGNS / STANDUPS
For ornaments / hanging signs, you have the following options: One-sided or Two-Sided, and Soft / Puffy, Hard Back ("Cookie"), or 3-Dimensional.
You may also choose the cording color and backing color (if needed) or ask us to choose for you. You may provide fabric and cording if you have something specific in mind, however you do not need to as the cost includes these items.
Hanging Loop: Centered or Edge to Edge (please specify from where to where you would like this - we suggest drawing a little picture!). Ornaments generally cost $50. And Hanging Signs are around $60.
Stand-ups can be finished in a variety of ways.
The basic stand-up will start at $100, depending on size. Gussets, feet, stands, and embellishments can be added, all adding to the cost. Stand-ups can also be two-sided (if you've stitched two sides to a canvas). For help or if you have questions about your finishing options, Call us at (828) 222-5018. Don’t forget to stitch 2 waste rows around all pieces.
FINISHING PILLOWS & STOCKINGS
For pillows, you have the following shape options: Knife Edge or Box. Outside Edging Options: Self-cording, Ruffle, Cording, or Fringe. Inset Edging Options: Self-cording, Cording, or None. No zippers. Fabric and Trim may be provided by the customer but it is not necessary. We stock 10/90 duck down inserts in 12”, 15”, 18”, 20”, and 22” square as well as 13” x 18” lumbar shape. All other shapes/fill may be special ordered. Most pillows average $150 to finish.
Stocking finishing cost starts at $150 and goes up depending on finishing choices. Our stocking finisher does their best to match whatever color you'd like. The most common options are Red, Green, and Cream. The finisher has multiple shades of each of these, so if there is a specific color you would like them to try and match, please specify when you send your piece in for finishing (for example, if your stocking has a Santa on it and you say "please match Santa's coat" they will try and find the best suited match for this). If you don't have a specific color in mind, you can just ask us to choose for you and the finisher will use the options they see as best fit. Typically, stockings are finished with a self cording. Other cording may be used instead. Please specify preference. The turnaround for Pillow & Stocking finishing is 3 weeks. For help or if you have questions about your finishing options, please call us at (828) 222-5018 to discuss. Don’t forget to stitch 2 waste rows around all pieces.

Send us your stitched needlepoint belt for professional leather finishing at Stitching Fox, 4066 Pea Ridge Road, Mill Spring, NC 28756. Include a note with your name, contact information, and instructions on your finishing choices.
HOW MUCH SHOULD I STITCH?
The finished belt size is best determined by taking a belt that is currently being worn and measuring from A (the most worn hole) to B (the top of the buckle prong). The length of the stitched needlepoint canvas when finished will be 6 inches shorter than the finished belt size. For example: a 36-inch belt will require 30 inches of stitch needlepoint. Stitch 2 to 3 rows extra along the top and bottom edge of the design. These stitches will be rolled over to form an edge for the belt. Approximately 1.5 - 2 inches of stitched canvas will be covered by leather in the finishing process.
WHAT ARE MY OPTIONS FOR BELT FINISHING?
Our belt finisher provides x2 options for the belt buckle (silver or brass).
Our finisher provides x3 options of leather for finishing. Pictured below in order, they are black, light brown, and dark brown.
WHAT SHOULD I INCLUDE WHEN I BRING IN / SHIP YOU MY NEEDLEPOINT FOR FINISHING?
