The conservation-approved way to mount a variety of types of needleart prior to framing. The artwork is centered on a mounting board, and the excess fabric is wrapped to the back of the board. With a needle and thread, the framer draws cotton thread through a corner of the fabric on one side and across to the opposite side; he continues back and forth across the work as if lacing a shoe. With lacing completed across two sides, the work is turned and the pattern is repeated for the remaining two sides, until the work is held firmly in place around the support board. Lacing is time-consuming and painstaking work.

This is the traditional manner of stretching fabrics that are sufficiently strong. It is usual to stretch over suitable grade mountboard or foam board. The thread used for lacing should be of the same weight as the fabric or slightly lighter; if there is a problem, the lacing threads should break, not the fabric. The thread should be a continuous length that is pulled through with each stitch from side to side and then from top to bottom at even distances apart. Tension is achieved by pulling the continuous thread. This method is time consuming and therefore an expensive method of stretching, but is suitable for conservation work.
