Karen Roberts of Sanibel, Florida began quilting in 1993 following many years of garment sewing and needle arts. After competing in numerous quilt shows, she became interested in judging. Following completion of the NQA (National Quilting Association) Judges Short Course and the rigorous judge’s candidacy program, she received her NQA Judges Certificate in 2007. In 2009 she obtained certification as a Master Quilt Judge.
Karen has earned many ribbons and awards in regional, state, and national competitions. Her work has been exhibited at the NQA Show in Columbus, OH; AQS shows in Paducah, KY and Nashville, TN; Quilt Expo in Madison, WI; Pacific West Quilt Show in Tacoma, WA; and various regional shows in Wisconsin, Illinois and Florida.
While employed in two quilt shops, she taught classes, designed patterns, and created an original pattern for McCall’s Fast Quilts magazine.
Her role as a judge is to encourage and motivate quilters, helping them to gain confidence and improve their quiltmaking skills. Each entry is evaluated objectively and fairly, recognizing the creativity and workmanship in each piece, while providing helpful and constructive critiques.
Professional appraiser, Jennifer Perkins, will be available at the show for your quilt appraisal needs. Cost is $50 per item. Please download and complete the pdf form below to request an appraisal ahead of the show. Jennifer will contact you to arrange your time slot.Quilt Appraisal Form
