Question
I have a 2' by 4' canvas of Goldilocks and the Three Bears, very detailed.  It has a price tag on it of $1,600.00 without frame or yarn. How best for me to proceed to have it appraised.

Answer
Hi Bill,

If I am understanding you correctly, you are saying that you have an unstitched canvas that is priced $1600...?  I find that price to be extremely high for an unstitched canvas.

The best advice I can give for getting it appraised is to contact The American Needlepoint Guild:
