Another superb piece of craftsmanship by Michael Hill of Compton Framers, Chirk

Having been so impressed by their work on Archie’s birth sampler a few years ago, I decided to use Compton Framers in Chirk to frame my red kite. It is framed tight to the stitches with a simple black frame and a spacer between the frame and aida to prevent the stiches being squashed by the glass. They stretched the fabric for me and mounted it on board that helps the stitches stand out. The glass itself is special artist glass that has superior UV protection and allows the true colours of the design to shine through. Only the best for my kite you understand! I picked it up yesterday and it now hangs in pride of place in our lounge – at last!
