Visit from a Friend

Last Monday Jeanne Brako the Curator of Collections from the Center of Southwest Studies at Fort Lewis College in Durango stopped by to visit the Luther Bean Museum.  I meet Jeanne when I went on my first museum trip. Since her area of expertise is textiles her visit turned into a work session.  Jeannie showed us how to prepare our textiles for freezer treatment and also gave us some valuable tips on how we can better store our textiles. In June two of the museum committee members Linda and Tawney traveled to Fort Lewis to work with Jeanne. They were shown how to hang textiles without causing damage to it.

Jeanne is not just my friend now, but “our” friend. Thanks friend for all your help.
