My family is blessed to have an antique christening gown that was made in 1880 and has been worn by most of the family at their baptisms ever since. It is a beautiful piece but very fragile and getting more so every day. I want to have it professionally restored so that my grandchildren will have it, if not to wear then at least to treasure. Any ideas on how to do this? I googled 'linen restoration Atlanta' but didn't get much back. I'd like to stay in the Atlanta area but would be willing to travel with it for the right person. Cost is no object, this is a priceless treasure to me. Please give me any tips or experiences that you might have with this sort of thing. Thanks!!
