The Coronado Historical Association Museum cares for historic textiles in its collection, including military uniforms, quilts, and early 20th-century clothing. The museum uses the best techniques to guarantee their preservation so that every item can be enjoyed by future generations. This workshop, led by museum professionals Vickie Stone and Christine Stokes, will teach simple and effective techniques to preserve your own family textiles at home and go over how to identify historic clothing and other textiles such as quilts. All attendees are encouraged to bring a photograph of their textiles at home.
