A very big needlework!

Well they do not come much bigger,  this sampler was done by a customers mother and is extremely precious.  It was fragile and we had to sew it on to a new backing to give it strength and stop further deterioration. We chose a suitable backing cloth and my mum proceeded to surface mount it to this. Then it was laced over a conservation board and framed. We kept the needlework away from the glass by building in a spacer behind the rebate of the frame.

This job was completed a few years ago but the customer recently came in with some more work, and commented how pleased she still is with the framed sampler, so I asked for a photo. I love seeing our previous work again and I get a lot of satisfaction from being able to play a part in the story of this wonderful family heirloom.
