Description

Do you have quilts in your collection and are you at a loss as to what to do with them? You are not alone. Quilts are among the most abundant textiles found in our collections. Their large size, complexity, popularity, and history of use can pose a number of challenges to their custodians. This webinar will review the fundamentals of quilt care, including assessment, surface cleaning, stabilization, storage, and display. Along the way, we will dispel common myths, such as the necessity to handle with gloves and vacuum through a screen. Creative problem solving will be emphasized. Technical handouts from the Museum Textile Services website will be provided to walk you through each of the solutions presented.
