Re: The NHS Covid-19 app - how does it work?

The app should be working in the background to locate where you've been. So if you travel around it should pick that up, but the information for your "area" does always seem to show your home address. We are a TQ postcode at home and EX at work and it always shows the TQ one on the app. It does say ...

Re: Moulding Identification Please

I agree with Prospero. Email Frinton Frames with a copy of the photo and ask them if they can match it. They aren't the cheapest, but the quality is excellent, and it is certainly cheaper than trying to do this yourself. We use Frinton frequently for this type of frame are highly recommend them.

Re: Gloss white frame

Nielsen do a fantastic high gloss range and it includes a bright white. You can buy it chop if you need to. Lengths come with a protective film applied. Presume it would be the same with chop but we’ve not had it chop so can’t confirm that. It cuts and joins really well and is good to work with. We’...

Re: Lining up a cross-stitch

I’ve tried a few over the years but Persil Silk and Wool liquid for delicates has been my preferred one for a while. Same routine you do with soaking and allowing it to clean without ruining the stitching. Then lots and lots of rinsing to be sure all the detergent is out before drying flat on a whit...

Re: Lining up a cross-stitch

I’m a keen stitcher myself and always wash my own cross stitches before framing them. In most cases I advise customers with modern pieces to do that too before framing, but to colour test the threads first just to be on the safe side. Oils from your hands can over time can show as yellowing patches ...

Re: Lining up a cross-stitch

As well as the image sitting square in the mount, should the weave run parallel to the edge of the mount? Ideally the answer is, yes it should. If it is a bit out of square, I find that lacing it quite loosely first, then lightly pinning it along all the sides into position under the necessary tens...

Re: substitutes for perspex panel as cough and sneeze screens.

We took the view that the screens are likely going to be there for a good long while so we chose to use glass. We’ve got 4mm toughened glass in frames we’ve made to form an L shape around our till area, with a gap underneath to slide the credit card machine through when needed. We had a 3 week wait ...

Re: Large needlecraft

For any needlepoint (I am presuming that's what it is) that isn't square then your first job is to block it out to get it square. That will take a bit of time and patience and if it is very bad it might need multiple adjustments over a few days to get it completely right. You can create your own blo...

Hi Justin There is a fair bit of work involved in prep to get them to fit together nicely. Biggest thing we found was to increase the size of the channel in the A333 by putting it through a spindle cutter. That allows the tongue on the A335 to fit into the slot more easily as it can be too tight oth...
