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.
