Needle art framing logo and information header

Welcome! - Where needle art framing is our specialty! Since 1986 we have designed one of a kind, custom picture framing for hand wrought works of Cross Stitch, Needlepoint and other hand made items. All of our work meets archival, museum-quality standards and is performed on-site in our studio. Whether your stitching has just been completed, you have pieces of antiquity or of a vintage nature, we can complete it with beautiful framing. Design with us in person or send your work to us. We will custom design in our studio, from an outstanding selection of frames and matting. If you are sending us your work we will communicate with you online. When completed you can pick-up from the studio or we can ship finished work nationwide.

Our Promise: All work is blocked and stretched straight! Mats are color-matched very carefully to fibers. The entire package is then completed with the perfect frame for a fabulous look.

Enjoy a few recent portfolio items we have completed. These images may take a minute to load. We want you to be able to see good images so you view details with greater clarity.

Latest Work

We love to see new things come in and the opportunity to work on them. We admit we are sad when the items leave and go back to the owners.

Home Is Where The Art Is


Tina, owner of Home Is Where The Art Is, began in 1986 framing for 5 local needlework stores in Saint Louis. Sadly, those stores are now closed, but Tina’s love of framing textile-related works for display has continued. With her astute sense of color, unique and creative ideas for presentation, specialty-designed matting, box and board building techniques along with her background in picture framing, she develops unique pieces to finish needlework. In her studio, there is a vast array of matting and frame choices. Tina especially enjoys designing to the exacting needs of her needlework clientele making everything extremely straight and matching color to a “t”.
