Under the heading Restoration there are 2 definitions:
I only do Quilt Repair Quilt Conservation should be done by a professional conservator.
A quilt is restored as closely as possible to its original state by replacing or fixing damaged or worn places. A quilt that is lovingly and thoughtfully repaired adds another chapter and another set of hands to its story. It's a good idea to keep a record of the repairs so that future owners can understand the quilt's history.
Repair lessens the historical integrity of the piece, i.e. a repaired quilt is no longer exactly the antique it once was. And importantly, repair can be dangerous to the future life of the quilt. By definition, "repair" makes an object useful again. And putting a quilt back into the context of use that has already damaged it can only mean that the wear process will continue on the next set of weaker fabrics. It's important to understand that a repaired quilt is not as-good-as-new, but is still an antique with lots of weak fabrics.
• Quilt repair is tedious business. This varies from quilt to quilt according to the project and how you will use the quilt in the future. A finished quilt may require taking the whole quilt apart replacing the old batting and possibly the backing. Mending all the tears, holes, seams etc.. then putting it all back together. While an unfinished top can be mended then quilted.
In most instances the quilt will need to be stabilized either with a very light stabilizer or muslin to give the fabric the necessary structural support.
. Conservation processes protect and keep even the worn places, as part of the quilt's history. Conservation processes take into consideration, not the short term use of a quilt by the current owner, but the preservation of the quilt as an historical document, the maintenance of the quilt into the centuries ahead.
I do not do Quilt Conservation I can only do Quilt Repair. Quilt Conservation should be done by a professional conservator.
Prices for Restoring your quilt will be decided after I have seen the project. A free estimate is available for all projects.
Turnaround time for Quilt Repair is approximately 4 to 6 weeks.
