Conservation Efforts

We have been blessed to receive a mentoring grant to help us train students in conservation of textiles and to help us buy the materials necessary to do this conservation.

Kristin South is heading up our efforts, with the welcome and generous assistance of Paul Stavast, the director of BYU's Museum of People's and Cultures. We have a great team of students we are training, and we have gotten the materials we need. Conservation has begun, allowing us to better care for the artifacts we have and to help students gain valuable experience.
