It is Official: I'm a Certified Quilt Appraiser

Great news, read on. In April, I traveled to Paducah, Kentucky for the American Quilter's Society Appraiser certification classes and testing. It was quite a stressful and exhausting and wonderful experience and I am now the first AQS certified quilt appraiser in Central/southern Utah (one of the first two in Utah) . There are about 92 in the entire United States. I am very honored to join this highly esteemed group and very excited about where this will take me in my quilt appraising life.

I want to publicly thank my family for all their support, especially my sister who traveled with me and made sure things went smoothly in Paducah. Thanks for the power lunch of deep fried Snickers bar.


  1. Congratulations on becoming certified. Bet it wasn't easy. Your blog came up when I was searcing for photos of antique quilts. Looks like your collection has some real beauties.
    Show us more!
    Thanks, Sheila H.

  2. Congratulations, Sandra! What a wonderful accomplishment. I'm sure you learned a lot along the way, and there's more out there to discover in our treasured quilt hisotry. Best to you. Nancy, Florida
