 Ask Janet
Ask JanetQuestion Molly: I have a silk embroidered bed-jacket (hand-stitched in china) and a sheepskin jacket, hand-embroidered from Poland. Each belonged to my grandmother and so qualify as vintage. They both need repair and then cleaning. I don't know who to trust to deal with these pieces. as they are family heirlooms I am looking for someone in nyc who can treat them exactly as they need. Can you advise me on where to take them in nyc? Thank you so much.
