I frame my own cross stitch but I have a "hot press" that actually adheres the fabric to the board. It's very simple you just lay a clear adhesive on top of the board then the cross stitch fabric, place it in the hot press for 3 minutes and it compresses it and comes out absolutely gorgeous, the fabric actually straightens out and sticks to the board. There are also some sticky boards you can use to give you this sane effect, if you do not have a "hot press". Then you just frame it like any other project. I believe you can dry mount the fabric as well using a different type of press. Hope this helps!
