Guest Speaker:
 NQA Certified Quilt Judge Fran Kordek presented

What is the Judge Thinking?  This session would be of interest to quilters
who plan on entering competitions, as well as to quilters who simply wish to
evaluate and improve their own work.  The first half consists of a lecture and
discussion covering the evaluation of workmanship and design, as well as
some personal insights on the judging process.  The second half consists of a
mock judging where items brought by the participants are evaluated.
