Preserving and Documenting Textiles: Made Easy

July 18, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm PDT

Personal family histories include not only photos and documents but also textile pieces, including quilts, rugs, lace, embroidery, clothing, flags. These pieces can carry incredible stories but also just the power that it was worn, collected, displayed or created by a member of the family from the past to the present. Similar to caring for old photographs and letters there are a few simple preservation steps to ensure that these pieces will last into the future as well.
