Floods Are Another Reason to Get Your Quilts Appraised

The Clara Ford Foundation recently sponsored, in collaboration with the Hammonds House Museum, a day of  quilt appraisals. Holly Anderson, Georgia’s only certified quilt appraiser,  was on hand to lecture and conduct a day of appraising.

One of the main points of discussion was why get a quilt appraised. Now we know. If you are one of the many people in the Atlanta area dealing with insurance companies after the flood, you realize how valuable an appraisal would be right about now. Our quilts are truly priceless and irreplaceable, but the next best thing is a fair price.

The Clara Ford Foundation will offer quilt  appraisals annually at Hammonds House Museum. Check this site often for news of  the next date.
