Q: Can a finished cross stitch piece be safely framed using acrylic or does it need to be behind glass?

A: Textile experts don’t necessarily agree whether acrylic or glass is better, but many experts recommend archival-grade glass for textiles like cross stitch, tapestry, and embroidery. The part must also be mounted correctly – no adhesives or glues that will damage the fabric. If archival glass isn’t an option, then it’s a personal preference. If you don’t like shiny, reflective surfaces, non-glare glass is an option, but it can blur the art. Ultra-clear glass is the next option. Glass conducts more moisture and temperature than acrylic, which can damage the fabric. Glass and acrylic both protect a room from dirt, oil, smoke, etc., and UV resistant acrylic protects against sun damage. Most standard chalkboard glasses provide some UV protection. Acrylic is shatterproof, so if the part does fall it won’t break, but it will scratch more easily than glass.
