  • Historic Indian Agency House at Fort Winnebago (map)

Saturday, June 16 at 11:30 AM - 4 PM


Many quiltmakers and collectors ask, “Why should I have my quilts appraised?” It is an important question to consider and it is answered with the following:

  • To establish a replacement value for insurance purposes before a loss such as fire, flood, damage or disappearance occurs
  • To meet your insurance company’s requirements for a “Fine Arts Floater”
  • To be assured that your quilt has adequate insurance coverage while at a textile competition or exhibit.
  • To provide a written record for your family.
  • To determine fair market value for sale of quilt.
  • To determine value for donation, gift or estate purposes (as required by the IRS).

Cost per quilt is $60. REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED by emailing or calling 608 742 6362 and leaving a call back number.
