My textiles (mostly towels) have been displayed on a table at the art gallery. A friend suggested that I find different ways to display them. I took in some free standing towel rods that I used at the Farmers' Market, but I also made some display boards to hang like framed art.
First off, a big thank you to Sue Parker-Bassett from the Weaving Indiana weaver's guild. In November she did a presentation on Leno Lace and had samples mounted on boards like these.
These boards are made from 1/2" rigid foam insulation (~$12 for a 4'x8' panel at Home Depot). The foam was cut to size with an exacto knife. I fashioned duct tape hangers/tabs, then covered the front of the board with a layer of polyester batting and some black fabric. The batting was glued and the black fabric was stapled. A piece of wire was strung between two duct tape tabs for hanging.
