Needlecraft & Object Framing

We do object framing from coins to kimonos, from single items to entire collections, in deep or shallow boxes. We frame needlework from antique samplers and doilies to contemporary needlepoint.

Fly Fishing Lures on Standing Frame
One of our personal favorite examples to present is the Standing Frame features Fly Fishing Lures. This piece won first prize in a framing contest.
The flies are mounted on cork and fastened to wavy blue glass, which is then mounted on a burl wood background. The 14" x 17" frame is a combination of different woods, cut and pieced together with a hand-carved acorn on top. The hand-painted decoration on the inner top of the frame emulates the markings of a rainbow trout.
