ARE YOUR QUILTS COVERED?

by

Sandy Schweitzer

 

What would you do if you lost a quilt?  Or if you had a fire and your quilt(s) were damaged?  Do you have written proof of your quilt’s value?  Do you know your ABCs?  Appraise Before Catastrophe!

 

AQS Certified Quilt & Textile Appraisers can provide you with that written proof for insurance, fair market or donation values.
