Our 2016 show judge will be Diane (De) Leclair from San Antonio, Texas. She is a member of NACQJ (National Association of Certified Quilt Judges). She said in an email: “I will also be bringing a NACQJ Award of Merit with me. It is an award that I like to give to a quilt that has something very special about it–perhaps a technique, design, something special out of the ordinary. I will enclose a link to our site with a picture and explanation. http://www.nacqj.com/cj-award-of-merit.html.”
De will give a lecture to our members after the judging is completed (probably Wednesday afternoon). An email will be sent when we know more details.
