phenomenal ‼️
Caroline Green
47:22
Did Kate do all the work remotely, or did she go onsite to CMA and the Met at any point?
joyce Lavalle
47:28
can you tell us something about the wool for the fabric and what kind of sheep were sought
Ruth MacLean
47:46
what kind of wool/fleece ?
Katie Smith
47:55
Wow—question for Kate. You mentioned making plates for embossed/moired fabric—are these plates heated to set the pattern in the fabric? Could you talk a little bit more on this since there is so little information now?
Kate Ellis
47:58
Who actually made the furniture?
KATE SMITH
48:07
Nancy, is the bolster just cotton wadding?
Gail Trotter
48:10
Is the source of the fiber from which type sheep… mater?
Suzanna James
49:25
So amazing! I’m interested in all of your backgrounds in conservation, what drew you all to conservation and why do you believe in it’s importance?
Wendy Feldberg
49:33
Can you comment on the life expectancy of the colours used on both pieces of furniture?
Hilary Baker
51:18
Is it a metal plate that is made for the press?
Katie Smith
51:57
Kathy Hattori—thank you for mentioning what happened in Atlanta at the beginning of this.
Kate Ellis
52:21
Thank you so much, Stephen. Just what I wanted to know.
donnette gladish
52:51
The trim? Woven, structure, fiber?
Kate Ellis
54:20
Light in museum
Kate Ellis
54:51
Does the color shift under gallery lighting?
Gika Rector
56:46
Kate, I have great, fond memories of time with Norman. Would you mind saying how he’s doing these days?
lisa stankus
57:05
could you talk more about the wool twill process in the washing machine? TY
Katie Smith
57:19
Thank you all (including Stephen—nice input). It is so lovely to hear from textile conservators, traditional weavers, etc. What a treat.
Danielle Kisluk-Grosheide
58:00
Couldn’t agree more with Stephen!
madeleine mcgarrity
58:45
Also (on Kate Ellis’ question) very interested in the Pantone match, taking into consideration the gallery lighting.
Monique Sidy
01:01:02
Does the tin in the dye affect people sitting on the seat?
Laurie Jones
01:01:03
as a former student of Marshfield, I totally endorse Kate’s weaving school!
Samantha Verrone
01:01:58
Curious to know if students using the 17th and 18th century looms are looking to make new objects for home furnishings or fashion markets - emerging slow textiles/care craft culture economy :)
Linda Magi
01:02:51
Why is the napping done? Function? Appearance.

It was particularly fortunate that part of the original wool fabric was preserved on the settee in Cleveland since Hope doesn’t say anything in his treatise about upholstery fabrics.
Sara Meinecke
01:04:52
Does your work in conservation influence how you treat and care for textiles in your personal lives? Are there any techniques or principles we can keep in mind when trying to extend the life of our own textile projects?
Laurie Clark
01:06:00
That would just make me want to take a nap
Casey Johnson
01:07:10
so are the historical looms primarily counter balance, jack?
KATE SMITH
01:07:55
Vacuum your furniture! Dust gets on the textiles just as much as the table tops.
KATE SMITH
01:08:15
No, this is Ellie Blachly
Denise Migdail
01:08:29
I/m curious as to what follows the pressing (watermark) .
Denise Migdail
01:09:03
Does all the hide glue remain?
Crystal Hartman
01:09:07
Where do the original surviving upholsteries go after conservation work is done?
Casey Johnson
01:09:22
so do you have any idea when looms in the US transitioned from being counterbalance to jack? as a contemporary hand weaver I mostly encounter jack mechanisms
Denise Migdail
01:09:47
Thank you
Carolyn Coates
01:09:48
Jack looms are 20th century, I think
Peggy Dlugos
01:10:00
thank you! great presentation
KATE SMITH
01:10:03
This is very interesting; can I have a zoom link of my own?
KATE SMITH
01:10:19
Ellie speaking
Laurie Clark
01:10:33
This makes me want to know more about the bedroom furniture I have that we sleep on. It is my great great grandmother's Eastlake furniture made for their family from Upstate New York. I need to be more careful with it for sure. There is a bed with headboard and footboard, 3 ladies chairs a commode and a dresser both with marble tops
Deborah Trupin
01:10:42
Thank you so very much. Robin, Nancy, Kate -- lovely to see this work.
