aving professionally certified judges at our show brings it to a distinct level. Getting a beautiful ribbon for your work is really an exhilarating moment for a quilter. There are several special awards from sponsors outside the guild. The winners are chosen by three categories of people: our two certified judges by the National Association of Certified Quilt Judges (NACQJ), a committee of representatives chosen by a sponsor, and the quilt show attendees.
