I have done a lot of machine embroidery. However, I have never framed anything I have embroidered. I would like to embroidery several of these dragon designs for my brother and put them in frames. Has anyone got any tips for me before I get started on this project?

Try the sticky mounting board for needle work.

The tutorial proves that there are a few different ways to frame something.

Two things that were not mentioned: make certain your mat and core board (if using that) are acid free. Mats are usually slightly wider on the bottom than on the top. It seems that this has more "eye appeal". Of course everyone is free to choose how they will do it.
