Straight Talk about Quilt Care provides an overview of ways to preserve and protect quilts and other textiles to ensure their maximum longevity. The book concentrates on presenting information known in the past only to museum curators and professional conservationists. For all of those individuals who have ever wondered about how to clean, display, or store their grandmother's quilt in a home setting, and keep the item safe from moths, mildew, rodents, and other potential damage factors, such as light damage, this book is the one to have available for ready reference. Procedures for washing, plus an indepth look at various cleaning agents are discussed. The author adds many instructive "tales" that she has personally witnessed, as examples of what not to do in caring for textiles.
