Valuable Tips for Quilt Storage from Martha Spark

Martha Spark is a textile care and preservation expert.

— Swim Noodles are safe to use to roll our quilts that are no wider than the 48″ noodle length.

— It is not recommended to use Space-Saver type plastic bags for long term quilt storage as the compression of the fibers will cause strain and breakage over time.  A better option is to wrap quilts in clean, white cotton sheets as textiles need to breath.
