Our standard cushion making up prices are set out below and include the stretching of your canvas, the supply of fabric for making up, making up with piping and concealed zip, a top quality feather pad, and return delivery of finished tapestry to UK address by Special Delivery, or by DPD (trackable, next day service).

We stock three ranges of fabric – a robust wool blend range, with a warm textured feel and look, a cotton range with a more clean, crisp finish, and a cotton velvet range for a luxurious feel.

To discuss possible colour/fabric options or have fabric swatches sent to you, call us on 01460 281111 and we’ll be happy to help.

Small & Medium Designs

Design size: 7″ – 12″: £63.00. These designs can be made up with an extra border round, so that they become a practical size (please add £7.00). Do specify additional border width if required when sending in your tapestry.

Standard Making Up

Design size 12″ – 17″: £75.00. Our most popular and ‘standard’ option, cushions are made up with piping and backing. The piping and backing can both be in the same colour, or in contrast/coordinating shades.

Design size over 17“: Call for prices, as the cost will depend on the size of your completed needlepoint.

Before you send in your work – a quick checklist before posting: 

Your details Please call us to discuss colours and fabric options before sending in your tapestry. Remember to include your name, address, a contact phone number and email address if possible, and details of different return address if necessary.

Please post your work using a ‘signed for‘ method.

If you will be calling to check that your parcel has arrived, remember to write your name and address on the back of your parcel.

Please include payment by cheque made payable to ‘Jolly Red’ with your work, or call us on 01460 281111 to leave card details for payment. We can also take payment by BACS if that’s easier or send a PayPal invoice. Again please call for details and a reference code.

Mitred Edging


A mitred border acts as a frame for your finished needlepoint, and can turn a small design into a more useful cushion.

Please add £7.00 (per design) to the standard making up prices for all but the ‘Very small/Small Designs’, which have a mitred border as standard.
