A cloth lining is made with pockets on the top for holding a flat aluminum bar for hanging the tapestry. The lining is first attached to the top on the back of the tapestry and then I sew with long, loose stitches in a zigzag pattern all over the tapestry, going through the lining and slightly into the tapestry itself. This distributes the lifting of the tapestry and makes it hang beautifully.
