Congratulations to Jennifer Perkins

Meet AQS Certified Appraiser
Jennifer Perkins, Harlan, has just earned her certification by the American Quilter's Society (AQS) as a Certified Appraiser of Quilted Textiles.  She passed the tests in Paducah, KY the end of April.  She is the first Certified Quilt Appraiser in Iowa.  There are 100 appraisers nationwide.  She is also a National Quilting Association (NQA) Certified Quilt Judge (again the only one in Iowa).  She can be contacted at qltrstore@harlannet.com or 712-755-5383.  Iasked Jennifer to comment on her accomplishment, and she responded,  "This has taken many years of study and hard work and I am so happy to finally be certified!"  We are really fortunate to have such a talented quilter in the area.  Jennifer is the president-elect of the Iowa Quilt Guild and will take the reigns as president in July.
