Knowing the appropriate conservation stitch to use, and when to use it, is an important part of working with costume and textiles in your collection. The wrong stitch, or even the right stitch done incorrectly, can mean permanent damage to an object. Join Kathleen Daly Sligar as she provides instruction on a few stitch techniques that every collections professional should know. Then, learn how to use some of those stitches to properly mount a flat textile for display. With sixteen years of small museum experience and practical and academic work in textile conservation, Kathleen will share methods for not only saving money, but also avoiding costly mistakes.

This webinar is part of a 2020-2021 webinar series, Hands On! Practical Conservation for the Collections Professional, presented by RC-WR featuring hands-on demonstrations by professional conservators of basic conservation skills that you can put to use with your own collection. Conservators will also lay down some guidelines that show you how to conduct a conservation condition survey and determine when it's time to call in a professional.

This webinar is sponsored by our Tier 1 Sponsor, Gander & White - thank you for your support!
