FINISHING ORNAMENTS / HANGING SIGNS / STANDUPS
Ornaments and Hanging Signs are finished as one-sided or two-sided. We most often finish as a “hard back and puffy front,” sometimes referred to as a “cookie.” You may include your own fabric & cording for these pieces or allow our finishers to choose for you. The cost of finishing includes fabric and cording.
Stand-ups are finished with a Styrofoam insert and may or may not be weighted to ensure the piece remains upright. You may specify if you’d like “ball” feet at the bottom and embellishments such as bows & bells, at the top.
FINISHING PILLOWS & STOCKINGS
Our pillows are finished as either knife edge or box in shape. Outside Edging Options: Self-cording, Ruffle, fancy cording, or Fringe. Inset Edging Options: Self-cording, fancy cording, or None. No zippers. Fabric and Trim may be provided by the customer and will save you $40. Please include at least ½ yard of fabric. All unused fabric and trim will be returned to you. 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.
Stocking finishing cost starts at $100 and goes up depending on finishing choices. The most common finishing choice is a poly/silk lining and velvet back with self-cording around the outside edge and loop at the top. However, the sky’s the limit! We have finished stockings with mink cuffs and fleece trim. We have removed names from stockings and stitched new ones. Let us know your ideas and we will bring your project to life! The turnaround for Pillow & Stocking finishing is 4 weeks. Don’t forget to stitch 2 waste rows around all pieces.
Whether you’re lengthening or shortening an existing needlepoint belt or having one created for the first time, our belt finisher will create a work of art you can wear! Using only bridle leather, you may choose from the following colors: Dark Brown, Medium Brown, Tan, Black, or Burgundy. Choose a buckle: silver or brass. Want to emboss a 3 letter monogram? Add $10.
How much to stitch? When having a stitched canvas made into a needlepoint belt, the belt measurement is referred to as the “finished measurement”. This measurement is placed at the center hole of the 5 adjustment holes on the belt, leaving 2 holes on either side for adjusting larger or smaller as needed. It is best to measure a belt that is currently being worn to get the finished size measurement needed for your needlepoint belt. Measure the belt from the end of the buckle (including the buckle) to the hole in which the belt is worn and fits comfortably. This measurement will be your finished size measurement. IMPORTANT: Please DO NOT go by the size marked on your old belt or your new belt will not fit. The length of the stitched portion of your canvas is approximately 4” less than the finished belt measurement.
