There are many reasons you may be wanting to appraise your quilt. You may want documentation for insurance replacement in the event of a flood, fire, theft, loss or damage in shipment or other disaster. You may want to know the fair market value for a donation. You may want to sell it, or you may be planning to give it as a gift and would like the receiver to know the value of the gift you are giving. No matter what your reason, an appraisal is always a good idea because every year quilts with a wide range of values are lost, stolen or damaged without any documentation. Julia Fikse is an AQS Certified Quilt Appraiser and can provide you with the documentation suitable to your quilt appraisal needs.
The American Quilter’s Society (AQS) Appraisal Certification Program has tested Julia in her appraisal knowledge and experience through written and oral examinations and has certified Julia as an AQS Certified Quilted Textile Appraiser. As part of the certification process, Julia has signed their Code of Ethical Practices. Her certification is reviewed and updated every three years. Your written appraisal will bear the AQS seal.
Pricing ranges from $25 for a verbal consultation to $75 for a written appraisal. Email Julia today to get started: Julia@quilt.ninja
