When Framing Needlework there are several things to consider. And at Campbelltown Framing Gallery we work with you so your work hangs beautifully.
We will ask you if you want the un-stitched areas visible – if not we can adjust the mat board to suit. Mat board comes in varying shapes and sizes. Our computer programs can create the most intricate of designs to show your needlework. You might want to show two or three works in one frame – we can create that also.
We will create a frame to suit your needlework. Any old frame will not do. Our frames are cut from lengths of picture frame mouldings. And we have corner samples on hand to give you an indication of how your finished product will look.
Matting when Framing Needlework.
A mat board surrounds the needlework – these come in many colours but needlework usually looks good surrounded by gold, creamy or even earthy coloured frames. Again this will enhance your work. Like frames, the mat board should not become the focus of attention. Your needlework is the focus.
At Campbelltown Framing Gallery we are conservation framers and use acid free products. We have been framing for many decades and have re-framed works ruined by moisture especially from medium density fibreboard (MDF). Our aim is keep your work looking great for many, many years to come. We’re happy to walk you through our framing processes.
When framing needlework and tapestries conservation framing protects threads and fabrics from deteriorating. When we create frames for your needlework, tapestry, cross or long stitch our recommendations are based on the showing and preserving of your works.
Framing needlework is an art in itself. As conservation framers we make a stand and will only use acid free products. You are welcome to call into our workshop and studio. At Campbelltown Framing Gallery we have the experience and passion to help.
