Quilt Appraisal Day
Thursday, August 18th

Ever wonder what your quilt is worth?

Lynn Contri, Quilt Appraiser, will meet with you at our store to appraise your quilt. Advance registration is required. Appointments are 30 minutes long and are available from 10am to 7pm. Sign up early to pick your time!


Three types of appraisals can be done: 

Insurance Replacement: if your quilt needs to be replaced

Fair Market Value: if you are interested in selling it

Donation: if you are donating it and need an amount for tax purposes

Fee: $35.00 per quilt

(due when you sign up for your appointment)

With each personal inspection of the quilt, it is documented with the physical description, workmanship, condition, and provenance. You will receive a written appraisal for each quilt.


To make an appointment, call Creative Sewing Center: (630) 208-6789

11 N. 1st Street, Geneva, IL 60134
