This series of images shows how we prepare and mount your cross stitch.
The process involves sewing calico to the four sides of the textile so that it can be wrapped around an acid free foam core board. The free sides of the calico are then laced together, side to side and top to bottom, at the back of the foam core board so that even tension is gently applied to the cross stitch.
A thin layer of padding is placed under the cross stitch to help create a smooth finish.
This process is fully reversible and is approved by the Picture Framers Guild of Australia.
When assembling into the frame we ensure that the cross stitch is held off the glass by using either a mat board or spacers. this prevents any potential transfer onto the glass.
We recommend glass or acrylic with a high level of ultra violet light blocking.
