Textile Conservation Workshop

Want to keep a family wedding dress in good shape for your daughter? Wonder if that heirloom tablecloth was crocheted or tatted? Join Spurlock Museum Collections Manager, Christa Deacy-Quinn, and members of the Champaign-Urbana Spinners and Weavers Guild for an afternoon of textile identification and conservation tips. Participants are asked to bring in one textile from home. They will receive a conservation booklet for later reference. No appraisals will be given on items brought to the workshop.
