This is a call for all of you to nominate a member of our guild for an award. Just to refresh your memory, and for the sake of our new members please see the criteria below: Quilter of the Year This award is associated with outstanding craftsmanship in quilt making. A member can nominate herself or if some members are too shy, be nominated by another member, supported by two fellow members. There will be two categories, i.e Open and Advanced. Previous prize winners at National Festival are automatically part of the Advanced category, while people who have been quilting for a long time may also be nominated in this category. Nominations will be invited and once on the shortlist, nominees will be requested to submit 3 examples of their quilts, pieced and quilted all by herself, for assessment. Jacaranda Ambassador This award is for service rendered beyond normal expectations by a member of the Guild. The nominee will be decided at the discretion of the Committee, although members can nominate and provide motivation for their nomination (supported by at least two fellow members) for a member.
