Needlepoint Tapestry



needlepoint tapestry
How can you clean an old tapestry?

I have a needlepoint tapestry created by my mother years ago. It recently survived hurrican Ivan, but was drenched in rainwater and left unprotected for several weeks. It is dirty, probably mouldy, and some of the colours have seeped into adjacent areas. The backing fabric may have deteriorated as well. The local cleaners refuse to touch it.
Any suggestions?

My wife takes her needle points to the cleaners when she is done working on them, before putting them behind glass.
Ask them if you signed a waiver (releasing them from everything) , will they do it. Unless it’s real bad that it will fall apart.
