NeedlePrint & Play Finishing

Let’s put the “Play” in NeedlePrint & Play!

One of my favorite parts of NeedlePrint & Play is the endless finishing options! When we unveiled the line to our wholesale customers we filled our booth with oodles of models! We used wood blocks, frames, banners, accordion chipboard, decorative clipboards, painter’s canvases. Because the edges of the paper don’t ravel– like linen does– you can trim the piece close to the edge and display it with “raw” edges! You can fit your piece onto whatever you can find!

Feel free to color outside the lines! We want you to be creative!

Watch the video below and I’ll show you a few of the most basic NeedlePrint & Play finishes. I’ll also give you some tips for trimming your piece to fit onto a smaller object.

NeedlePrint & Play

Come and Play!

I would love to introduce you to a brand new kind of cross stitch! NeedlePrint & Play is a whole new way to stitch. It brings together printed artwork and hand stitching.

How does it work?

Each NeedlePrint & Play kit contains a piece of perforated paper that has a design and centering marks printed on it. In addition, the kit contains a traditional cross stitch chart for embellishing the paper with stitching. Match the centering marks on the chart with the centering marks printed on the perforated paper.

When the design is stitched, add the buttons (included in the kit) and then attach the perforated paper to the included printed-card stock.

Watch how it’s done!
