This needlepoint came to OTC roughly cut and tacked to a small bench. It had served as upholstery for so long it was distorted and the ground fabric was failing and split in places under high tension. The owner planned to recover the bench, but wanted to salvage the needlepoint in a manner where it could still be used. The needlepoint was removed from the bench, underwent treatment to try to flatten and square it, and was stitched to a new support fabric that helped hold the splits closed and infill minor loss. The stabilized needlepoint was "mounted" in a new, fabric "frame" and fitted with a pillow insert that closes with antique buttons on the reverse.
