I am part of a group that has worked on a bead quilt that we are donating to Bead and Button to auction off. We're now to the point of mounting and framing.
I'm hoping that someone will be able to point me in the right direction for doing a good job of mounting so that the piece will last for many many years.
The piece was not designed to be stitched together, but mounted in such a fashion that all the pieces make a whole, with about a quarter of an inch between the pieces. The material is some type of upholstery fabric that is close to Stiff Stuff. I'd really like to use archival material so that acid doesn't eat away at our work.
I appreciate any pointers! I'm sure that this is something that would be a good tip and that other BJPers, if they are thinking of putting their pieces in a book or a frame, would benefit from your input.
Many thanks in advance for any help!
