1724RE: [IAM_ListServ] Fw: Textile Conservation Question
- Oct 2, 2013
We just had a conductor’s jacket, vest, and hat cleaned through Textile Restoration, Inc. They are based in Chicago, but on the edge of Oak Park, IL. We were very happy with how it looked, and they were able to meet our tight deadline too.

Might any museum staffers with 1950s textiles be able to guide Mr. Fosburgh professionally with his query, posted below? His e-mail address is
Fosburgh_Lee_C@... My one suggestion would be the Chicago Area Conservation Group's members (http://chicagoareaconservation.wordpress.com/, but he's in Peoria).

Subject: Textile Conservation Question
I have acquired a 1950s vintage basketball jersey that is in good condition but needs to be cleaned. Does anyone have a recommendation for a conservator or how it should be cleaned?
