Quilt Show Appraisals

American Quilter's Society Certified Quilt Appraisers
at Quilt Arizona!

Why get a quilt appraisal?  Quilt owners and makers have quilts appraised for a variety of reasons - insurance coverage, donation, sale, curiosity, etc.  The most common reason is for insurance purposes. If you ship a quilt and it is lost, you are only able to recover the usual cost of a piece of bedding. As Quilters we realize that the cost of fabric, patterns, thread, quilting and labor far exceed the comparable costs of bedding. It is a wise idea to have a quilt appraised before shipping. Quilts can also be appraised to be included on our homeowner’s insurance policy.

When and how much?  Quilt appraisals will be available during all show hours: Thursday (5-8pm), Friday (9am-5pm), and Saturdary (9am-4pm).  The appraisal fee is $65 and is due at the time of the appraisal.  Download the 2017 Appraisal Form.
