Fair Isle Preservation Services, LLC, in association with the North Western Kansas Museum Coalition, was awarded a Dale G. Hansen Foundation Grant. With this grant FIPS will provide services to eleven NW KS small museums to increase best practices and provide preservation services to the small museums that serve their communities.
*This mount is the perfect example of something that should never be in a museum. Due to lack of resources, FIPS was able to make this an inert mount and part of the permanent exhibit.*
"Fair Isle Preservation Services offers an ideal solution for smaller museums looking for expert assistance. Affordable, accessible, friendly! We have been so grateful for Jenny's expertise while developing our new exhibits!"

President, Fort Wallace Memorial Association
"I had the distinct privilege of meeting and consulting with the founder and lead consultant of Fair Isle Preservation Services, Jennifer Tracz, last fall at a symposium at the Fort Wallace Museum. With her excellent educational background ...her qualifications are excellent. Moreover, Ms. Tracz"s passion for preserving material culture artifacts and art objects motivates and drives her work."
