Do you have a special quilt at home? Would you like to know how museum professionals handle and store quilts? DAR Museum staff will walk you through the steps to best care for your quilt so that future generations can enjoy it just as much as you do. For the acid-free materials that they reference in the video, try sources like: University Products (https://www.universityproducts.com/), Gaylord Archival, (https://www.gaylord.com/), and many more. Try an internet search that includes the terms "archival", "acid free", and "museum".

The DAR Museum is free and open to the public Monday - Saturday (except holidays). It is located in Washington, D.C. between the White House and the National Mall.
