National Quilting Association
(NQA) Certified Master Quilt Judge
The National Quilting Association (NQA) is the recognized standard for well prepared quilt judges. The program is a rigorous year of study including “hands on” experience working with a certified judge. For detailed information about the program, go to the NQA website.
For me, acquiring this credential was the next logical step in my professional quilting career. I enjoy seeing the beautiful quilts and creativity of fellow quilters and I find it rewarding to recognize and reward excellent workmanship and design.
If your guild is planning a show and you have not thought about including a certified quilt judge, you may want to reconsider. Quilt judges can do more than arrive at the show and "judge." They can be a great help to a guild in the planning phases of the quilt show. There are several ways to "judge" a show. The feedback to a quilter from a certified quilt judge can provide satisfying recognition as well as helpful pointers on areas for additional skill building. I can help your guild select a method of judging that best meets the needs and goals of your members. Give me a call or send me an email to talk more about this.

Did you know that quilt judges are not just for shows? If you are serious about your quilting, treat yourself to a private consultation. I will review your quilt(s) in detail and give you a detailed critique that you can use for technique improvement. Your quilt(s) will be evaluated on their own merit and you will be well on your way to creating award winners. Give me a call or send me an email to talk more about this.
