Needlework

Whether you are looking for framing for an antique piece or something produced recently, Collier Framing have a comprehensive service.  Antique samplers are carefully dismantled from their old frames and re-stretched on fabric, before being framed in a period-style moulding.

The example here already had a frame, but still had to be removed from the old stretcher and consolidated by stitching onto an acid-free fabric stretched over an acid-free backing. Note that the gold “slip” keeps the sampler away from the glass.

Contemporary embroideries, such as cross-stitch and “tapestries”, which are really tent-stitch embroideries, can benefit from a more modern treatment, with a myriad of mouldings and mount colours to choose from.
