In the last update we showed you some new weavings from the artist Robert Sailors that were donated by one of our neighbors in Cortez. The donor, lives in the Sailors sister's house which is how she obtained the many blinds woven by the artist.
This update, we share with you our cleaning techniques. We are rotating Sailors weavings to put new objects on display.
Note Jennie, FMM's Registrar and Collections Specialist, gently brushing every inch of the blind to remove built up dust.
This weaving, previously on display, was gently brushed and vacuumed before being carefully protected for a rest away from the light and elements that can damage textiles.
