Bed Turning and Quilt Appraisal Day

Talent Show/Bed Turning and Quilt Appraisal Day
Thursday, September 15, 2011
1 p.m. - 7 p.m.

Fabric Town is pleased to have Jean Carlton, AQS Certified Quilt Appraiser at our shop doing quilt appraisals by appointment and answering your questions. Insurance, Fair Market and Donation appraisals are available for quilts or quilted textiles: vintage or newly made.

Many people think only vintage quilts need be appraised but consider the investment you have in your newly made quilts. Replacement values for new quilts often include the costs of labor as well as materials. Many quilt shows are now requiring appraisals by certified appraisers. When shipping your quilt to a show or sending it as a gift, you will want to insure it against loss or damage. Knowing the value of your quilts, new and vintage, and informing your insurance agent of this fact, can be a big help if claims for damage or loss are necessary.

Any quilt you value should be documented, photographed and appraised. The written appraisal fee is $45 per quilt. It takes approximately 30 minutes to examine and photograph your quilt. Appraisals are mailed within two weeks. Consultations are also available.

Call or email Jean now to reserve a time or to ask further questions.
