JUDGING

The purpose of a quilt competition is twofold: to educate the public about the standards of good quiltmaking, and to recognize those quiltmakers who have  achieved some measure of those standards. A good judge will evaluate the quilts in a competition according to those standards and provide an entrant with both positive and constructive comments on their quilt.

As a member of the National Association of Certified Quilt Judges, I consider it an honor to be entrusted with the evaluation of a quilter's work and artistry, and I can provide your show with a professional, impartial, and decisive judging experience.​

Details of my judging experience can be found in my vitae.
