  • Do you have embroidery that is stitched but not yet made up for display or use?

    Are you unsure how you might finish an old piece or your next piece of embroidery?

    Are you at a total loss for how to frame, make a wall hanging, or make a pillow?

    Are you concerned that you don’t have the skills to handle finishing?

    Have you previously tried and gotten stuck or failed?

    Can you frame your own embroidery?

    Absolutely!
