How do you display old embroidery?
Display them on a wall hanging or in a frame to make them pop. Or wrap the finished result over a blank canvas to make the piece stand out from the wall. One of the coolest ways to display embroidery is in an embroidery hoop.
How can I reuse old embroidery?
Make A Memory Quilt or Reuse Embroidery as a Patch
