What is a Tabletopper?

"A tabletopper is a stitched doily. When I was growing up we had lots of doilies in my Mommie's house. There were crocheted ones, knitted ones, embroidered ones, and even a few cross stitched ones! So to keep the tradition going, I present you with the tabletopper: an easy to stitch, easy to maintain "doily" for your house from me!"


We specialize in cross stitched tabletopper doilies, stitched over two threads on a nine square cut of 18 count Anne Cloth from Zweigart, using size 5 pearl cotton and/or 1 ply of Caron Watercolours thread. A tabletopper size is 22 inches by 22 inches. These pieces are durable, washable, and unique accessories for your home. They are fun to stitch and make great presents for that "hard to stitch for" person.

Claudia suggests finishing your tabletopper using a Nun stitch.

Unfortunately, as of 2023, most colors of polyacrylic Anne Cloth used in our Tabletopper designs are no longer being made. If you already have appropriate fabric, and would like to purchase one of our tabletopper design charts, please contact us! We can print on demand, so no chart is "out of stock" except for those designs we have purposely chosen to retire.
