Andrea Bursaw was awarded the prestigious NACQJ ribbon for her quilt “Beasties” at our show last weekend. It was included in the Broadstrokes special exhibit.
The following is an explanation of what the ribbon is and what it means, quoted from the National Association of Certified Quilt Judges website:
“If professionalism, experience, and integrity were not sufficient reasons alone to secure an NACQJ Certified Judge to judge your group’s show, here’s another incentive—the brand new NACQJ Award of Merit. With prior approval of the show coordinator or sponsor, NACQJ certified judges have the option of awarding this special ribbon to a deserving quilt in any show he/she might judge. At the judge’s discretion, it will be awarded to one quilt achieving recognized standards of quilt making excellence.”
The guild has scheduled a visit to the New England Quilt Museum for Sunday, October 6 at 11am
- Admission and the private tour are free to us as part of our Guild’s contribution
- Parking is available in the lot behind the museum and the shop will be open until 4pm
- Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in joining us
- All are invited to Tremonte Pizzeria after the tour for lunch on our own. It is a 5 minute walk from the museum.
I hope you can join us! It will be a fun and interesting day!
Congratulations to the Quilt Show Chairs, Sub-committees and volunteers for another very successful show. Attending guest comments were very positive, which is a reflection on you, and all the hard work by our committees and volunteers.
Thank you to the members who submitted quilts to show and to judge. Congratulations to the members who received ribbons. We are lucky to have so many talented quilt makers in our guild.
More information to come at our next guild meeting which is scheduled for Thursday, October 24, 2019, which is a week later than our usual meeting. Looking forward to seeing everyone then.
Elizabeth Swan, President
If your quilt is being judged, and you have labeled, it please remember to cover up the label. This is a simple step to ensure anonymity in the judging.
