Museum Textile Services: New England's Premier Textile Conservation Studio
Your family christening gown. The signature quilt on display at a local history museum. A flag carried into battle during the Civil War. Each of these textiles tells a story about our personal and collective past. And each story brings meaning to our present.
Founded in 1999, Museum Textile Services is one of just a handful of independent conservation studios that specialize in preserving textiles that are under the care of private individuals, cultural heritage institutions, and government agencies.
Museum Textile Services is a trusted resource for education and information on the conservation, storage, exhibition, and care of textiles of personal and cultural significance.
Issue 5 of the MTS e-Magazine is out! Read all about the past year's projects, our ongoing research, and meet the other conservators with whom we've been collaborating.
