Belt Finishing for Needlepoint
Send us your stitched needlepoint belt for professional finishing at 3811 Hillsborough Street, Raleigh, NC 27607, Attn: Caroline. Include a note with your name, contact information, and instructions on your finishing choices. Watch our instructional video and read below for highlights.
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 needlepoint belt finishing?
