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...

Re: Rose&Hollis "very deep box section"

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...

Re: paying business overheads buring the covid shut down

You may not have felt the need before, and I totally respect that - but given the small cost of a basic smartphone with camera versus the benefit of a £10k grant from the Government to cover all your current bills, I'd be ordering a smart phone online asap. You don't need to have a contract with it,...

Re: paying business overheads buring the covid shut down

Mark, you can take a digital photo of your bank statement and attach that as a document to your application. Just like you would upload a photo to this forum. If you can't do that yourself, I'm sure you must know someone with a smart phone who could email the attachment to you. Then save that on you...

Give these guys a call:

They're very helpful and they do van deliveries. They should be able to sort out all the consumables you will need to get going.

Re: New kid on the block

Hi Mark and welcome to the forum I’d highly recommend coming along to the Guild Weekend in May where we will have a room full of experienced framers giving help and advice on a variety of framing topics in a relaxed and informal setting. There’s no classes to sit in, just the chance to ask questions...

Re: Framing Training (GCF) & Military Funding.

Mike was definitely the person near Bristol who previously did the training on that scheme - when I saw him last May he was clearing out bits of equipment ready to demolish his house and do a full rebuild on the site. Presumably he's well on the way with that now so I doubt he would still be able to...
