Finishing Process During COVID-19

You can bring your pieces into the shop where we will fill out the forms and make fabric selections together.  

For those that are remote, or prefer not to come into the shop, you can mail or drop off your pieces following these guidelines:

  1. Customers complete their own Finishing form. See below for instructions.  Like pieces (ex. all ornaments) can share a form, but be sure to clearly describe which fabrics are for which piece.  Download the Finishing Form.
  2. Customers complete the Credit Card Information form.  Download the Credit Card Information Form.  Note: If you are submitting multiple pieces of finishing at the same time, you only need to complete the Credit Card Information form once.
  3. Attach both the Finishing form and Credit Card Information form to your canvas and deliver it to the store either via mail or by dropping off at the store M-S 10:00AM-2:00PM.

We recommend you take a picture or make a photocopy of your Finishing form.

Finishing deposits will be taken, as follows: $50 for an ornaments and belts, $125 for a small/medium pillow, and $200 for larger pillows and stockings.  The balance for completed finishing needs to be paid within two weeks.
