I just looked at the Road to California web site, and after already signing up for a TON of classes (mostly about appraisal), I realized there is a lecture in the evening on Friday, where the owner of Pinwheels will speak on TAUPE FABRIC! Ok...signing up tonight!
On the topic of quilt appraisal - why you might want your quilt appraised...all that good stuff - lots of reasons you may want to check this out.
Mostly if you have a normal home owner's policy, your quilts are covered if they are lost but will only be replaced at a very low value unless you have appraisal info for them.
The other really great reason to insure them is if you are putting them into a show or competition. If for some reason it is lost you will not get any replacement value unless you have an appraisal.
I am getting more and more into sending my beloved quilts off to see the world, so appraisals may be in order before I send them off for the greater universe to enjoy.
Speaking of the universe - have you ever visited the Alden Lane Nursery quilt show? If you're in the California bay area, it's not to be missed.
Maybe I'll enter my Lone Star quilt (yes, you guessed it from my last post, that's what's in progress!!)
