Here at Shear Art Picture Framing we have framed a great many Cross Stitch, Tapestries, and all kinds of needle & lace work over the years.
We take great care of delicate needle work and appreciate the care, time and effort that our customer put into their work.
Each Cross Stich or Tapestry is carefully laid out then stretched & laced with twine at the back over a piece of conservation board, enabling us to apply the correct tension to keep the needlework nice and tight and secure. Further adjustments can be made if needed.
Its always a good idea to leave enough material around the edges to enable us to stretch out your work, however, if there is limited room we will always find a way around it.
We love to work with all levels of ability with any kind of needlework, from hobbyists & crafters, to professionals who sell their work, from commissions, to general sales etc..
Below are some examples of cross stitch we have stretched and framed in the recent passed, from small 4x4inch samplers to commissioned cross stitches that have then been posted over seas.
Blood Swept Land & Seas of Red ... It was a pleasure to frame another Tower of London Poppy. Keeping things as simple as possible, we worked with our customers idea to incorporate as much of the original images that come inside the Poppy box as possible..
The top & bottom images are printed on the inside of the postage box, complete with the poppy, stem & fixings, certificate & booklet.
We have used just a single dark blue mount and have set the Poppy back inside a deep 3D box. Framed inside our slim red Komodo box frame.
The 3D box was made from normal plain wood timber which was secured inside the main frame & given several coats of a satin Walnut varnish to finish.
There are many frame styles to choose from when framing these ceramic Poppies, its all down to personal preference & we will work to our customers budget to achieve the best results possible.
If you have one of these Tower of London ceramic poppies and would like it framed, please do get in touch.
We have been framing Louise’s Wildlife art work over the past couple of years. More recently Louise has turned her hand to producing portraits in pastel and pencil to an amazing standard. The colour and vibrancy in her art capture a depth & character of her subjects which are just beautiful.

What a pleasure framing these 2 Tower of London Poppies. A regular customer of ours came to see us contemplating putting her 2 new poppies into a vase. She wasn't keen on this idea & felt they needed more prestige.
We showed her some ideas and choices to frame & display them in, then she picked her favourite pictures from the box that they arrived in. We then simply put them all together.
Cutting out the red inner and a dark blue outer mount & fixing the certificate, booklet & large box image into place on the mount.
A timber box frame was made to secure in to the back of the frame, which was then varnished and lined on the inside with the dark blue inner mount.
And the finished result. This will last for years to come and our customer was thrilled to bits with it, as we where.
