Dawn Heefner, Certified Appraiser of Quilts & Quilted Textiles

  • Saturday, April 13, 9:30 am - 3:30 pm

Quilts, old and new, should be appraised for insurance value. Written insurance appraisals are available at The Lancaster-Lebanon Quilt Show by certified appraiser Dawn Heefner, who is certified to appraise both traditional and non-traditional quilts.   Each quilt will require approximately 30 minutes for appraisal. If you are interested in having a quilt(s) appraised, you must pre-register for the desired appraisal day and appointment time. Please register for one time slot for each quilt you would like appraised. You will receive any email prior to your appointment with further information that will be needed for your appraisal.  Appraisals are by appointment only

Two types of appraisals will be offered:

1-Written Appraisal-$55

This is an appraisal that will be valid for insurance purposes. This type of appraisal is reccomended for insuring or sale of quilts, especially antique quilts. Prior to your appraisal you will be asked to put together any information you know about your quilt, such as who made it, where and when it was made, your relationship to the quilt maker, whether it has won awards or been published. 

The written appraisal will be mailed to you after the appointment as more research is generally required. Your 30 minute appointment will include talking about the quilt, taking photos and any other information Dawn will need to issue a fair market value estimate. 

2-Verbal Appraisal-$45

This type of appraisal is for those who wish to get more information about the age, historical information and condition of the quilt. Dawn will give you a wide ballpark value. It DOES NOT include a written appraisal or a valuation. This is good for people who wish to know more about a quilt, and cannot be used for insurance purposes. You are welcome to take notes during your verbal appraisal. 

Both appraisals will be given instructions on the care of their quilt as well as a written quilt care sheet. 

PLEASE NOTE: We will not accept any quilt for appraisal that have been stored with mothballs, have any sign of mold, or smells from animals, smoke etc. These are a health hazard to our appraiser and will not be taken. If your quilt is rejected due to one of these reasons your appraisal fee will not be refunded. If you are unsure please contact us prior to your appointment.
