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.
