This charming winter scene was framed with a double mount with a dark brown reveal to accentuate the colours of the artwork. The frame was built to hold the needlework securely and fully reversibly. The double mount helped space the cross stitch from the glazing, preserving its textured effect while still protecting it from dust and damage.
When framing needleworks, it is important to use a lacing method to pull the fabric flat evenly and without straining the lattice of stitches. We do not press, iron, or bond fabrics to a flat surface, as these may cause damage or ruin the three-dimensional effect of the artistry.
