Preserving Your Grandmother's Quilt: Restoration and Care of Antique Quilts
Presenter: Tracy DeBellevue, M.A. 2013, public history


Lecture Description

Quilts are a window into our heritage. Each has a specific reason it was made. From the design chosen to the fabric scraps used, quilts tell the stories of our families and the daily lives of people in bygone times. But how do we preserve these precious, historical heirloom quilts? Join antique quilt collector Tracy DeBellevue as she explains the proper techniques for care, display and storage of these beautiful historical artifacts. She will demonstrate these techniques with her own family heirloom, a quilt dating to the nineteenth century.
