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.
