Why Appraise?

  •  To establish a replacement value for insurance purposes before a loss
      (stolen, lost, destroyed, or damaged)
  •  To meet insurance company requirements for a "Fine Arts Floater"
      including transit and display
  •  To establish value for donation, gift, or estate purposes as required by
      the IRS
  •  To obtain a descriptive written record for the family
  •  To mail your quilt and/or meet requirements for entrance in a textile
       competition
  •  To determine fair market value for the sale of quilts
  •  To accompany a quilt to be given as a gift

How are appraisals conducted?

A confidential written appraisal is completed for each quilt and a photo is taken for identification. Appraisals take approximately 30 minutes. You will receive a professionally written document at that time. If research is advised, the appraisal will be mailed to you.

Appraisals can be conducted in a home, at a quilt show (while hanging on display), before or after lectures, or in any mutually agreed upon location.
