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.
MTS Director Camille Myers Breeze is teaching Textile Stabilization Using Sheer Overlays from June 5-7, 2017, at the International Preservation Studies Center in Mount Carroll, IL. Immedi-ately following that course she will teach Displaying Historic Textiles, from June 8-10.
