The Importance of Appraisals
Textiles have value and quilt appraisals are a service to determine and document the value of your quilts whether they are a family piece, purchased in an antique shop or created by you.
Without a written appraisal, if damage or loss of your textile occurs, your insurance company would probably give you the value of commercial blanket in return.
Quilts traveling to exhibits or shows require appraisal value when you request additional coverage.
An appraisal identifies the value of the quilt required by the IRS for gift, donation or estate purposes.
A quilt with an insurance appraisal is a nice gift to family and friends.
