Elizabeth Spanning, Judge of QLV 2020
Elizabeth began her crafty journey knitting socks, sewing costumes, and decorating cakes. When a sewing friend presented her with a rotary cutter and a bag of scraps, another enthusiastic quilter was born. Entering her first competition in 2002, she has won numerous awards at major shows across the US.
Having attended the Northern California Quilt Council Judges Training in 2002, she pursued her involvement in judging and in 2006 completed the NQA Certified Quilt Judge program. In 2011, she fulfilled the training and coursework to become a certified quilt judge with the Canadian Quilters Association/ACC.
Presently a certified judge with the NACQJ, she has judged quilt and fiber art competitions throughout the US and Canada. While evaluating a quilt her objective is to encourage quilters to develop and improve their artistry, creativity, and expertise.
