ID:	920Imitation is the best form of flattery. And great stitching is fun to frame. A $5.99 magazine started it all. Well, and then selling the fabric and fibers. And loads of encouragement as stitching on black fabric is worse than framing black fabric.

    Beautiful Job! Stitching and Framing. It always amazes me how one item can be framed so differently and still look Fantastic.

    Cathy,

    Great to see two nice framing presentations that both work for this piece of counted thread.

    Many framers think that needlework customers are too frugal, so it is nice to see premium moulding used and triple matted as well.

    Nice job!

    John

    Excellent!! - You should be happy to have customers with such talent and you should be very proud of your work and the way you presented their cross stitch.

    That's true in a few cases, but I find that most of my needlework customers realize that they are already heavily invested into their piece, in terms of materials cost and time, so they might as well get the most out of that investment by framing it creatively and doing it right.
