I am a big boy now so I am not afraid of critique :lol: so hear are my thoughts.

I am not certain what this is but it looks like what I would call "Tatting" If so, I have, in the past, lightly tacked this type of fabric mainly across the top on a suitable mountboard as the main support. I would use one of those rounded point needles and use a thread/cotton that is the same as the item as possible.

If you use this method a thimble is a must you may even need to start the hole off with an awl. On occasion a fabric covered mountboard may be an option. Discuss this with customer. I have made the mistake of making my stitches to tight and that will distort the item.

It's been a very long time since I framed such a thing and if anything else comes to mind I will post.

In the meantime I hope I works out well for you.

What is holding them up at the moment? They look like pins and very thin rods. Is this not enough to support them?

Are they individual pieces lying on a piece of glass? - Is it free machine embroidery on dissolved fabric? If they are made of thread, then you could stitch as unobtrusively as possible, to a fabric backing, using a similar thread, then stretch the fabric backing over a piece of conservation mountboard and either have a double, shadow mount or spacer under the rebate. If the customer wants this kind of shadow effect created you could attempt to stitch the pieces to a piece of organza, or ask the customer to do that. then you could fix the organiza to a stretcher frame, possibly with staples, and frame that within a deep frame with a spacer. not a two minute job! hope that helps, good luck.

Sorry, I've just had another look and see that each piece is spaced away from the backing on 'stilts' What is the customer expecting ?
