Repairs & Restoration Services
The goal in restoration should be to take the quilt from a compromised state to health while invading it’s integrity as little as possible using age appropriate fabrics.
Commemorative & Memorial Quilts
A commemorative quilt is an heirloom designed to last beyond our lives to memorialize something or someone
Quilts Have a Story to Tell
For 25 years, I have been enamored with the history and tradition of quilts, in part because they reveal stories about the quilt makers themselves. I have made well over 200 quilts and have serviced more than 100. My time is shared equally among hand quilting and finishing work (“Will you finish the quilt that I started?”), restoration work, and making commemorative quilts. Many quilts surviving through the generations in a family cannot withstand the test of time and begin to fall apart. This is where quilt restoration can be a solution so that it may live on to be a treasured heirloom. Quilts can be a design piece and/or a commemorative work of art. The commemorative quilt is a quilt made from commemorative fabrics – T-shirts, clothes from a deceased loved one, a wedding dress, baby clothes. The memories contained within a commemorative quilt are extremely meaningful as is the process of working with the customer to design their very own. Quilts truly have a story to tell and my mission is to help them tell it.
