Sedona AZ (April 5, 2019) – The Sedona Heritage Museum is hosting a special workshop on the value and care of hand embroidery, needlework, quilts, and other textiles on Saturday April 13 from 10:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. with Margaret Azpeitia-Taylor. Entitled “What’s It Worth”, the workshop is more than an appraisal workshop. It will also explore best practices for care and tips for storage/materials to use to insure family heirlooms and collected examples of hand-stitched items last for generations.
Azpeitia-Taylor will share the fundamentals of what an appraiser looks for regarding quilts, needle arts, textiles, and more. This educational workshop is $10 per person at the door and includes a handout for future reference and Azpeitia-Taylor’s overview of one item of textile per person. Participants are encouraged to bring one item for her to conduct an overview, although not a complete appraisal due to time limit. RSVP is appreciated by not required.
Azpeitia-Taylor is a Certified Appraiser through the Embroidery Guild of America (EGA), for personal property; specializing in quilts, needle arts, fiber arts and textiles. She also holds a Certificate with Distinction from the Royal School of Needlework (RSN) in textile hand embroidery; design and care, and is a Founding Member of the Northern Arizona Stitchers Chapter, Sedona, AZ. Her original works are in the collections of private clients internationally and as part of the EGA National Collection, Louisville, KY.
