Needlework

Needlework

All types of needle work can be framed and preserved, including embroidery, cross-stitch, crewel, tapestries, hand woven rugs, hand stitched quilts and batiks. Since these pieces have a lot of time and skill invested in their creation, it is important to display and protect them.

This is my daughter Hillary holding beautiful needlework of a bedtime prayer that was stitched by her great grandmother.  We found it rolled up in a ball in a cedar chest at her grandmother’s home.  It’s a very delicate piece due to its age and needed some careful attention.  Using high quality conservation framing techniques, we have lovingly preserved this heirloom piece.  It hangs proudly in her bedroom where she can appreciate it every day.


 

There are several techniques to framing each piece, but rest assured –

All pieces will be adhered WITHOUT glue or tape
