Appraisals are done for Insurance unless otherwise stated by the client. Appraisals can also be done for re-sale or donation.
Some clients seek appraisals for estate planning or in case of a divorce when household contents are sold and proceeds divided.
Quilters sending their quilts to shows for entry seek insurance in case of loss or damage.
If a quilt does not warrant an appraisal, due to low value, the client will be told and a written appraisal will not be done. A verbal evaluation stating age, pattern, or other information can be done for a fee as well.
I appraise antique, vintage and newly made quilts, wall quilts, art quilts and quilted garments.
Call for an appointment. Anytime during daylight hours, Monday-Saturday.
