It was a privilege indeed to reframe this century old textile. It’s in pretty good condition for its age. Normally I would lace textiles (or put them onto backing fabric and then lace) onto backing boards but because of it being a fine linen material any pulling of the fabric may cause damage. It is therefore held in place on conservation grade backing board with a piece of inert mylar plastic slightly bigger than the textile and taped down at the sides and bottom. Glazed with conservation glass
What a difference a reframe can make!
Originally framed in 1977 this has had a reframe to freshen it up and protect it. It is a cross stitch on linen gifted from the maker to her friend, a gift made even more thoughtful with the wording in the stitching and the writing on the dust jacket on the back of the frame. It is in good condition considering it has had no glazing for 45 years. Now it has a green mount, with oak moulding and standard glass to present and protect it.
A labour of love
This took its owner over forty years to complete so she wanted it framed as best as possible. She choose this complimentary deep gold distressed frame with antireflective glass. Mount spacers, coloured blue, create a air space. Framed at level 2/ conservation standard.

Poppy Field Tapestry

‘The x stich took me 2 years to do and I wanted the framing to do it justice. I was guided by Fellows Framings expertise, had a good choice of materials and look at it! I am so pleased with it and I know that it will protect the fabric for many years to come. I will definitely be bringing my next piece to you. Thanks so much’. Harriot K
