CUSTOM ORDERS - Requiring 3 to 4 Hours of touch up designing.
PLEASE SEND ME AN EMAIL BEFORE YOU PURCHASE A CUSTOM ORDER SO WE CAN DISCUSS THE POSSIBILITIES THAT ARE AVAILABLE TO YOU!
LET ME KNOW IF YOU WILL BE DOING A NEEDLE POINT TAPESTRY OR A CROSS STITCH TAPESTRY. IF YOU KNOW THE GAGE/COUNT THAT YOU WOULD LIKE...ADD THAT ALSO.
WOULD NEED A PICTURE OF YOUR REQUEST BEFORE A FINAL ANSWER COULD BE GIVEN!
Included is a Cover page, 2 Instructional charts listing threads and yarns used and 2 PDF counted chart patterns, which includes symbols and comes in Black and White for easy reading. The pattern will be increased by 30% automatically when printed.
If a custom pattern is private (family photo, etc) it will never be used and offered to the public. If a custom pattern is public (University, Company, type of dog, etc), I reserve the right to offer it to the general public for sale in my shops.
It's important to tell you about the quality of the patterns I sell. Anyone that produces a digital pattern can use up to about 90 colors per pattern. As a customer, it is important to know how MANY and WHO's (manufacturer) colors are used in your digital pattern. You need it be a reasonable, workable or stitch...able number. If I have to use more than 37 different colors, I don't offer the pattern. I made one exception where my cross stitch pattern used 36 colors, but my needle point pattern used 43. (I just Loved the finished pattern). Once I upload and analyze all my yarn or thread choices, I produce my ruff draft. Each pattern needs additional design work. I have not found one yet that didn't. Some take as few as a couple of hours and some take days especially if out-ling is offered.
All my pattern pictures come in the specific manufactures color that I am selling. None are just black and white. I also offer symbols with the patterns that need them, for easy stitching.
Not all my patterns are digital. I design many of them from hand and stitch them as well. Some pictures you will see the patterns already stitched and framed. I use a solid picture with no grid for my jpeg. It protects me from anyone just copying the pattern, by using the "image as" and saving it to there computer, yet still allows you to view the actual colors of the pattern.
Finally, I offer Needle Point Patterns and Cross Stitch Chart Patterns. Needle Points are done on Canvas, use yarn and a half cross stitch. The yarn manufacturers, there colors and types, vary greatly not only from each other, but also from the thread manufacturers. It costs a lot of money to purchase all the materials required to make a tapestry. That type of investment requires a material chart to work from. A tapestry will NOT turn out the same if you use Anchor Tapestry Wool verse Appleton Tapestry Wool. They all make very different shades to there colors. I sell both pattern types in most of my offerings. That way you don't need to choose until you are ready to stitch!
I have a gallery, if you would like to see my actual framed work at www.paulaspatterns.com. I have 75 of my pieces on display. I have been doing this for over 45 years. My first large canvas needle point was framed in 1976.
