Take a guided tour of Living History Farms textile storage facility and learn how you can better store your own textile treasures at home! Join us for this up close view of select historic quilts and clothing. These rarely seen gems are safely tucked away most of the year; explore the vault and take a peek at quilts, clothing, and hand work treasures! Discover why our museum collects certain textiles, but not others. Learn how these delicate objects are preserved and stored and what can cause them to decay. Gather tips and techniques for caring for your own heirloom textiles.
