How do I frame a large cross stitched picture?

LindaSBBJuly 11, 2004

25 years ago I cross stitched a large picture for my newborn's nursery. Very crudely I stapled the edges to the back of the board. I now want to properly frame this picture for her newborn's nursery. Can you tell me what to do? I know I can have it done professionally but really can't afford to do that. I was hoping to buy a moderately priced frame to put it in. Do I use a mat? Do I use glass? What do I affix the fabric to? Thanks so much for your help!

How large are we talking about. Dimensions would help.
