Textiles + Quilts + Beaded Objects

Please excuse while we are
under construction updating our site!

We are grouping these items — textiles, quilts, banners, clothing, beaded items — together because we see similarities in treatment issues.  These types of items are rarely called by a common research-able name (chair, sofa, etc.) 
ALL articles relating to this topic are under here with links.
