How do I safely store a quilt?

Acid-Free Storage

The safest technique for storing a quilt that is not being displayed is to wrap the quilt in acid-free tissue and place it into an archival storage box. Support any folded areas with rolls of tissue to prevent creases. Remove from the box every few months and refold so the creases aren't always in the same areas of the quilt.
