Hi all! I love the stitching process & watching the picture take shape, but I have to admit that I very rarely have had pieces framed. Are there others like me? What do you do with the finished pieces? Will people buy a piece to have framed? Give them away? Your thoughts, please? -- JanB from Alabama
- All my works get framed by me in frames that are either antique or vintage that I picked up for nothing or for a few dollars. I can not bear to part with my works of art that took over a year to finish. All get framed under glass and grace my walls as my own private art gallery! -- Laura from Lancaster, PA -- Dec 09
- Thank you for your reply Laura!! -- JanB from Alabama -- Dec 09
- I have about 5 or 6 finished pieces that need to be framed. That is one of my goals in the New Year - to stitch AND frame! I have the frames! -- Pauline from Barnegat, NJ -- Dec 10
- I stitch for my pleasure mostly and they go in the back of the cupboard when done. Some get framed and given as gifts, some given away for others to frame, some actually get sold! If I framed all of them from over the years I would be running out of wall space by now! Do what feels right for you! -- Maria from United Kingdom -- Dec 11
- Thank you, Pauline and Maria, for your replies!! -- JanB from -- Dec 13
- I also have 2 pix to do (frame) but after Xmas will do -- elaine a cripe from Utica n.y. -- Dec 16
- I frame all my pieces. I buy frames from either WalMart or Michael's. I give some away to close friends and relatives. I have 18 that I did hanging up in my house. Ellen from Canandaigua,NY -- Ellen Heath from Canandaigua -- Jan 26
- I've started framing things with fabric. For instance, I made the Ursula Michaels's hairdryer (part of her "Words" collection) for my hair dresser. I backed it with iron-on batting and trimmed the edges. I found cute fabric from Fabric.com with curlers and cans of hair spray, and used that to frame the piece. I sew rings on the back for hanging. It's much cheaper and it looks original and unique. -- Betsy from NC from Fayetteville, NC -- Apr 05
