2019 DHQ Raffle Quilt  Update

Thank you to everyone for your hard work and completing the raffle quilt top, and for
buting stitches to the quilting as it moves from quilter to quilter. In December we will be
distributing packets of raffle tickets for each member, we appreciate your taking the time to offer
chances on this beautiful quote to your friends and family.

A small change this year is that the price on the raffle tickets will be two dollars each, or a book
of three for five dollars. Since most people usually purchased a book, this just makes for a little
less handwriting on the tickets.

The show theme is a quote from Eleanor Roosevelt, “the way to begin is to begin“.
We hope this will inspire you to perhaps try something new, a technique or the results a

Introduction to Quilt Judging Seminar with Sandra Dorrbecker

Sandra Dorrbecker is one of only twelve people in the US who are Qualified Certified Instructors by the National Association of Certified Quilt Judges (NACQJ). The Dutchess Heritage Quilt Show Committee is pleased to sponsor an Introduction to Quilt Judging Two Day Seminar lead by Sandra. The seminar covers all aspects of quilt judging. It is open to anyone who is interested in developing a better understanding of the judging process. This is not a judging certification program, but it will prove of benefit to anyone who enters judged quilt shows or is interested in pursuing certification as a quilt judge or appraiser.

The Seminar will be held on Friday and Saturday, November 16 & 17, 2018. This two-day event will be held on the campus of Dutchess Community College, Bowne Hall Room 105, Poughkeepsie, NY. The seminar schedule is tentatively 9 AM to 6 PM each day. Participation is limited to 12 students. Cost for the two days is $210. The fee includes a student kit.
