FRAMES TO WORK ON YOUR CANVAS
I strongly suggest you use a frame to work on your needlepoint.
Your work will be more regular. The canvas won’t be stretched out of shape and you won’t have to straighten it when you are finished.

FRAME TO DISPLAY YOUR MASTERPIECE
I have chosen a 7”x7” picture frame in natural wood with a white mat (both frame and mat come in many colors to fit your fancy). The frame is 1” wide.
The opening of the white mat may need to be adjusted to fit the design.
Cut your canvas, leaving a 1” margin all around.
Attach your canvas to the backing with tape.
Add the white mat and the frame.
I prefer not to use glass to allow the yarns to shine
and reflect the light.
Just dust it occasionally with a damp cloth to keep it fresh.
I hope you will enjoy your needlepoint for many years to come.
