Needlework and Textiles

Leading specialist in the custom framing of all needlework also known as needleart  including: Cross Stitch, Long Stitch, Tapestry, Embroidery, Lace, Hardanger, Silk and Textiles. We invite you to visit us today for a personal consultation with our stitcher and framer instore.  





With an embroiderer on staff, who has a vested interest and is passionate about needlework, we offer a significant competitive advantage over others.

We appreciate the considerable time it takes to complete needlework.
Therefore we  do not take shortcuts, by using staples (either galvanised or stainless) and or glue, all of which cause irreversible future damage.

Although time consuming and more labour intensive it is our preference to use traditional methods such as Lacing, or products such as Tackmate®, which do not damage or mark the fabric.

For long term preservation of family heirlooms and other needlework we offer and recommend conservation framing. Archival acid free materials are used and we recommend and use conservation glass which provides UV protection), against fading.

In addition we have pleasure offering a 'free' Warrant of Fitness check for all framed needlework, personally brought into our shop, for a visual inspection.

You may be surprised by what we find.

Should any repair or remedial work be required our stitching expert will recommend a suitable course of action, with materials being supplied at a reduced price.

After an oval or round frame or something a little more special and ornate, look no further. We offer a choice of sizes, styles and shapes from plain to the intricately detailed.






With our friendly and personal one-on-one approach to service and design, Chaplow's enjoy a high level of recurring needlework framing business.

We take as long as it takes with our design consultancy to ensure that each customer is entirely satisfied and a favourable outcome is achieved.

tapestry repairThe consequence of not dealing with a 'specialist needlework framer'. In this case the tapestry was glued down. Took us over 4 hours to remove non acid free brown card. Due to loss of shape the tapestry had to be restretched; all unnecessary if it had be done properly in the first place.
