My profound apologies to those who visited yesterday, clicked the link to the List of recommended picture framers and got a 404 page instead! The link had been changed - or so I thought - to the revised URL, but obviously the change had not 'taken'.
Yesterday's blog post Starting a list of recommended picture framers has now been revised so it now has a proper live link. Plus the one above also works!
Hopefully that will mean that some of you can now share the framers you like and can recommend?
Have you ever wanted to know who are the framers recommended by other artists?
Me too! I also believe in the wisdom of crowds!
So today, I've created a new page on my website - List of recommended picture framers. This creates a space to record those framers who have been specifically recommended by artists who have used them - on the artist's website or blog.
Read on to find out how you can help expand the listing.
How to recommend a framer
This is going to be a long slow sharing exercise and I don't expect it will get long overnight!

I will then review the recommendation and if it does what I ask then the name of your framer will be added to the list
As will any framers I notice being recommended by artists on their websites or blogs.
I've created a new section on this website devoted to how to frame and hang art.
It provides a home for information, advice and tips and techniques - and links to more of the same - about different aspects of matting, framing and hanging artwork - including:
To date it has two sub-pages:
I've also been writing quite a lot on my main blog about framing art in recent months.
