Tapestry and Needlework

The process of framing a hand-made needlework is specialised. There is much care, preparation and attention involved.  At Frames Now, we specialise in the framing of materials, and do all the hard work for you!  We have framed items such as

  • Tapestries
  • Needlework
  • Cross-stitch
  • Long-stitch 
  • and embroideries

What’s involved with framing a Tapestry or Needlework?

We know that a lot of work and time goes into your beautiful cross-stitches – maybe it took you 6 months to make! Or perhaps you had received one made from a loved one, maybe even got it from overseas!

  • Our expert picture framers are dedicated to ensuring the longevity of your hard work. Tapestries and Needleworks need to be professionally stretched taut and straight over the backing board.

  • We then add the coloured matboard layers. These are important as not only do they look beautiful and really make your artwork the prominent focal point, they also add protection and prevent condensation building up over time by creating a tiny air gap between artwork and the glass.

If you are looking for a tapestry or cross stitch to frame, have a look at Etsy.

Matboard colours and styles for your tapestry frames

We have a wide range of coloured matboards and endless combinations of colours to choose from, but don’t worry, we’re here to make the job easy! Our friendly team will help collaborate with you to choose the perfect colour combinations to offset your artwork beautifully!

  • We can cut the matboard window to be circular, if that’s the style you are interested in. This is a popular choice when it comes to framing needlework. The beauty about custom framing, is we can really personalise our designs to make something truly unique for you to enjoy for years to come!

  • All of our mat boards are acid-free to prevent the yellowing and deterioration of fabric materials.
