Textile conservator Kathryn Tarleton will give an illustrated talk and presentation on how to care for and conserve quilts. Tarleton will have quilts on display and provide practical tips for do-it-yourselfers looking to better care for their family heirlooms and creative projects. Following the lecture, Tarleton will offer personal consultations on quilt conservation. Consultations are limited to five people; pre-registration is required.
This program is free for Museum members/ $10 non-members. Registration required for personal consultations only. For more information or to register, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (978)283-0455 x10.
This program is offered in conjunction with the Gloucester: A Community of Neighborhoods exhibition currently displaying thirteen quilts designed and created by participants in the Art Program at Gloucester’s Rose Baker Senior Center under the leadership of artist Juni Van Dyke.
