Sugarloaf, circa 1900, from my collection seen at appraiser's class in Paducah this year.I interrupt this regularly scheduled blog post about quilt studio reorganization for some great news....I passed the AQS Quilt Appraiser Certification Test!!!!
I got my letter yesterday...very excited! This past year I studied a lot...did many appraisals...worked with a certified appraiser...did lots of market research on non-traditional quilts and quilt-makers and retook the two day class the week of the test so the definitions were fresh in my mind. I also rested more the day prior to testing...large show with so many vendors and so much to see, rest does not come easy!
Thanks to all of you for the kind words of support the past year. Now off to the printer so I can get new business cards made up...I was down to my last dozen after Paducah and I didn't want to print more just in case!
