• An Elegant and Versatile Needlepoint Finishing Option

    Needlepoint pillows and ornaments are great - everyone here at Needlepoint.com has a coveted collection - but sometimes you just want to stitch something completely different!

    We have been going nuts over these versatile acrylic trays.

    These trays may be made any size, so whatever you're stitching we can custom-make a tray for it - as long as it's 6" x 6" or larger; squares and rectangles only.

    Your finished needlepoint slides in and out of a slot in the bottom, so it's easy to change out the design seasonally, or whenever you feel like it. 

    In order to get a good fit and the most elegant result, we recommend you have your stitched needlepoint panel professionally finished. The needlepoint is padded so it fits snugly in the tray and doesn't slide around. It is then finished with a hard back in a complementary fabric.

    Matching (or contrasting if you prefer) cording is added to the sides so the edges are beautifully finished. Hard back finishing prices vary by size and start at around $55.

    Prices for the tray vary by size and start at around $75 for a 6" x 6".
