Thanks for posting this. I was just wondering today how to frame a canvas that i bought in Zambia last year.

I have been seriously ill. I will get back to everyone to finish up all swaps and stuff. I am home now.

Is the purpose of a stretcher thingy so that there's support there with which you can now attach a frame?  I've never really worked with pictures on canvas before and was just wondering.

WIST it up babee...WIST and shout!!
