Special Show Events
Quilt Appraisals by Alma Moates
AQS Certified Quilt Appraiser, Alma Moates from Pensacola, Florida will be available to appraise your quilts, both vintage and new. Alma has been a certified appraiser since 2008 and has appraised at local, regional and national quilt shows. She also provides consultations on quilt repair, restoration, conservation and new quilt contruction. You can make an appointment or just drop your quilt by for her to appraise while you are in the quilt show and shopping with vendors. If you already know of a quilt you plan to have appraised, you can fill out a Pre-Appraisal form and send to Alma so you will already be booked for your appraisal.

Alma Moates will also be doing Bed Turnings on Friday and Saturday at the show. She will be showing a collection of her quilts and will be available to answer questions. You won't want to miss this!
