Bespoke design services

Commission Fine Cell Work

Commissioning Fine Cell Work's bespoke design service is easy and our talented team is here to bring your ideas to life. We can create original artwork and transform it into a beautifully hand-embroidered cushion, wall-hanging, quilt or rug. Alternatively, we can convert your existing artwork to create a needlepoint cushion, rug, fender, ottoman or seat cover.



The first step is to get in touch with us at Send us your ideas, photographs, existing objects and an idea of the size of the piece you would like made and we will give you an estimated cost and lead time.


Prices start at £500 + VAT. A bespoke piece of needlepoint or embroidery usually takes a minimum of 9 months to develop and a further 6 - 12 months to stitch.

Costs & calculations


For the creation of artwork the initial design fee starts at £100 + VAT.


For the sampling process using either your own artwork or the artwork we have produced from your brief, there is a sampling fee of £100 + VAT. At this stage, we will produce small samples of needlepoint or embroidery to allow us to match colours, check stitches and ensure we are using the right fabrics to complete your piece.


We will guide you through the whole process – choosing an appropriate base fabric, colour-matching stranded cottons, wools or silks and selecting the best stitch technique to create your commission.


The full quote will then be given for the work needed to make your unique commission a reality. This will take into consideration the size and complexity of the piece, the number of colours used, the skill level of the stitcher required and an estimation of the time needed for the piece to be completed. Any design fee and sampling fee will be deducted from your final quote.

What we need from you


Before you enquire, try to have a clear idea of the type of work you would like us to produce.


It is a great help to have the exact (or approximate) measurements of the finished item you would like us to produce.


Wet us know if you already own something similar on which you would like to base the design or have specific stitches or motifs you would like included. Sending us photos and providing colour references if possible are a really helpful starting point for our expert design team. We will do everything we can to interpret the information to create something very personal which you will want to keep forever and pass down through generations.
