Threads / Kitting
If you wish Needlepoint Land to pull threads for your canvas order, we can discuss your needs in person at the store, or over the phone.
Here’s our general approach; some specifics may change on a case-by-case basis.
1. Canvas areas
We consider any canvas to have a main design area, and a background.
2. Thread categories
We divide threads into two general categories: Plain and Fancy.
Plain threads are #5 DMC Perle.
Fancy Threads can be:
Pepper Pot Silk
Planet Earth Silk (Tilli Tomas)
Silk and Ivory
Metallic – Silk Lamé Braid and Petite Silk Lamé Braid
Kreinik – 12B & 16B
Neon Rays +
YLI Shimmer Blend
3. Thread mix
We pull Fancy threads usually for the background area of a canvas.
Only plain threads are pulled for the design area, to save you on cost, unless you indicate otherwise.
4. Color selection
We try to match as closely as possible the colors of the canvas you are buying from us.
However, these may not match perfectly in all cases.
Our color selections are usually final for over-the-phone orders, as we can only customize color choices if you are present at the store.
5. Thread Pull quote
Once we have pulled the threads, we will advise you as to the cost of the kitting — either in person, or by phone.
6. Buying the threads
For a phone order, if you wish to purchase the threads we have pulled for your canvas, please let us know immediately. We will then process your credit card order as a mail/phone order transaction.
PLEASE NOTE WE ONLY HONOR KITTING REQUESTS AFTER YOU PURCHASE THE ASSOCIATED CANVAS FROM NEEDLEPOINT LAND.
Sorry, but there can be no exceptions to this policy.
Thank you for shopping at Needlepoint Land!
