Needlework framing: what’s involved?
As with all items that come through our doors, we’ll assess your needlework item to decide the best way to handle and display it so that it is not damaged in the process.
Needleworks are stretched over a rag mat and acid free rag foam core backing using stainless steel pins to hold it in place (similar to lacing). Tapestries are blocked back into shape, then stretched.
Our needlework framing team takes a huge amount of trouble over every item we frame, giving each one the care and attention it deserves.
All care taken with needlework framing
We use a variety of conservation methods to ensure all needlework framing is completely reversible.
There is no need to worry about your item losing value, as the frame you choose can be removed without any damage occurring.
