Express yourself in style!

Got a saying you use all the time? Is poor grammar your peeve? Waiting in line the bane of your existence? Is your family everything? Is housework last on your list? No matter what it is that bugs -- or delights -- you, there's a tapestry to be had for it! Immortalize your favorite utterance. You can also immortalize Aunt Tilly's famous saying for a gift she'll treasure (you'll be her favorite!).

This listing is for a 100% custom tapestry with the word, expression, gleeful exclamation, pithy observation, snarky phrase, vulgar declaration or playful poke of your choice. The sky (or your vocabulary) is pretty much the limit here. Profanities are entirely at your option -- I'll stitch 'em if you want 'em! (I'll also mask 'em for you -- F*ck or 'eff off and so on.)

Just give me a quote or tell me what sentiment you want to convey ...

And let me know any special requests (broad or narrow) you may have, like ...

-- I *love yellow [or dragons, moons, art deco, etc.] ... or
-- I *hate yellow [or dragons, moons, art deco, etc.] ... or
-- I only want the word(s), nothing else ... or
-- I want it like an old-time cross-stitch sampler ... or
-- I'd like it to resemble those chalkboard signs ... or
-- I really love subway art style ... or
-- This word must be misspelled as follows ... or
-- *Anything* specific that you do or do not want ...

And I'll take care of the rest! (Don't worry, we'll discuss along the way to be sure your tapestry will be a piece you'll treasure.)

Because this is a 100% custom piece, it will take time to set up before stitching, perhaps as long as 4-6 weeks, depending on how busy I am and how involved your piece will be. I know you hate waiting -- I hate making you wait! -- but I promise to make it worth it for you! :)

The examples shown are just to get you thinking and are already sold -- you will be ordering a 100% custom, created-just-for-you tapestry. (If you like a quote you see, let me know. If you like the layout of one, but you want different words or imagery or a different font or base color, etc., let me know and I'll get you all fixed up! I'm like that burger place -- you can have it your way!)

Unless otherwise noted, your tapestry can be spritzed with wrinkle release -- or -- it can be ironed upon receipt to remove shipping wrinkles. You'll want to use medium-high heat and iron with a pressing cloth, dish towel or mesh, do not iron directly on the embroidery itself. You may receive special instructions from me if there is anything extra you need to know about your tapestry.

Sizing Notes
-- Up to a 9" x 12" (or 12" x 9") stitched area, your tapestry will also include a generous fabric border for hanging, matting and display purposes. (Unless you specify otherwise, of course!)
-- If you intend to use the piece for a pillow topper or quilt center square, please let me know in advance so I can be sure the dimensions will meet your needs.
-- If you have a specific frame or mounting you wish to use, please let me know the actual viewing panel (inside the matting, if any) dimensions, so I can size the piece accordingly. And yes, I can indeed put it on a 9x12 sheet of crafting felt so it will fit perfectly in the display area of your 10x13 or 11x15 frame!

Your purchase is unframed, and will be sent in a large vinyl mailer.

I am so impressed by this! The quality is great, I was kept in the loop the entire time that it was being worked on, and it came out better than I ever imagined! I approached Kathleen asking is she would be willing to make a wall hanging containing a quote and a rooster beneath it, and left all the rest up to her, giving her pretty much entire creative freedom. I could not be more in love with the end result- it is gorgeous and perfect for displaying the family motto. I received my order fairly quickly, only a few weeks after placing my it. If I could give more than five stars, I would.

I gave her full control of the designs for the quote and she did not disappoint! I love it so much!

I love my tapestry so much!! Cannot recommend Kate enough. She worked with me every step of the way, was happy to re-do anything if I wasn't sure about a design aspect, and was just generally so kind and patient with me. My best purchase on Etsy by far. Can't wait to order more from Kate in the future.
