Rehousing Coverlet Collection

Purchasing storage furniture to rehouse the Yager Museum's 19th-century textiles that depict art and daily life in the mid-Atlantic region.

The Yager Museum is requesting funds to purchase two rolled textile storage racks form the Borroughs Corporation. The racks will be used to store the museum's collection of twenty-two 19th century coverlets. The new storage units will allow the museum to properly care for the hand-made coverlets, which are important historical works from the surrounding region. Currently, 14 coverlets are rolled and mounted on a wall using L-brackets, the remainder are stored folded and stacked on open metal shelving.
