Don’t you just hate it when you work hard on a canvas for a gift, but end up missing the finishing deadline?
You can pay rush fees, give something else, or just stew, but Tapestry Fair has a great suggestion for you.
They are now making pillows for needlepoint that are ready to accept your canvas with no fuss and no worries about deadlines.
You just top-stitch the canvas onto the front of the pillows (non-sewers can use permanent fabric tape).
The pillows are available in a variety of sizes and colors from your local shop.
