Saving Our Treasures

This is a 3-4 hour workshop that touches on the basics of restoration, conservation and repair of antique quilts. The workshop will include discussion and trunk show of historical repairs. The hands-on portion will cover basic repairs, restoration techniques, conservation, rescue tips and the recreation of patterns that are damaged beyond repair.

Participants will be encouraged to bring a vintage quilt in need of repair to discuss and begin work on during the workshop.

 

A conservation kit is required and can be purchased directly from the instructor for $10.
