Storage care tips to preserve your work of art for generations to come!

Are you a big fan of quilting? You’ve invested lots of precious time and money into this. So, it’s only wise to keep your precious quilt investments and family treasures safe and well preserved for generations to come. With the right storage and care for your quilts, you can definitely enjoy the beauty of your quilts for many more years to come!

Here are 5 Tips to properly store your quilts:

1. Only store clean and dry quilts!
Before storing, always handwash your quilts with cold water and mild detergent. For quilts with puffy applique or lace, it’s best to always dry clean them. Ensure they are completely dry before proceeding to the next step!

2. Roll never fold
By rolling you prevent creases, plus it’ll save your storage space too making room for more quilts! Prevent dust or staining by placing your quilts into muslin bags. A cotton pillow case with a zip will work too!

3. Storage bins for your quilting equipment
Keep your hobby and passion organised and tidy by using separate compartment containers. Sort out your scissors, rotary cutters, cutting mat, seam rippers, acrylic rulers, thread, pincushions, needles, clips and fabrics into individual storage boxes.
