What you should know about your needlework prior to getting it framed!
NEEDLEWORKS are one of the most amazing art-forms that have almost disappeared in our day. A little bit of the human heart is poured out in every stitch of a needlework, and because of this, you want them to look great and last a long time!
(Want detailed information? Fill out the form at the bottom and we will send you a lot more information on taking care and framing your needlework free of charge!) Here are some tips for starters:
BEFORE YOU BRING YOUR NEEDLEWORK IN to a frame shop, there are a few things you should know, and a few pieces of advice may prevent you from damaging it. At the very least, these hints will help you in the future.
RULES OF HANDLING:
Clean hands & surfaces are a great start when handling needleworks. There shouldn’t be any tape or pen marks on the fabric, and keep it away from anything that will damage it. No sprays – hems etc are advised. Store it flat & away from the elements.
If there is any loose or balled threads on the rear they should be cleaned up. Stains should be removed very carefully.
The experienced staff at The Framing Nook will assist you with making all the right choices in framing your art to both protect and display it nicely. It may need some pre-stretch treatment as well. Optically coated glass is recommended to limit reflections and offer the clearest viewing of each stitch. UV-filtering in the glass is a must to limit fading of this sensitive material. Acid free matting is used to keep the glass and moulding material safely away from the artwork and finally a moulding is selected to enclose the sealed package to protect and display the needlework.
