Judging Certification Program (JCP), submitted by Joni Stevenson, Chair
Celebrating, Encouraging, Teaching - are these the words you think of when you consider what a needlework judge does?
The most rewarding part of judging needlework is when you see a really fantastic piece and you rejoice in the quality of the needlework along with the stitcher - celebrating. Needlework judges raise stitchers up to new levels of work, suggesting new ways to think and to stitch - encouraging. Whether at the local county fair, a regional needlework exhibit or a national level seminar, a needlework judge explains to the stitcher how to improve his or her work - teaching.
Learn more about needlework judging and the Judging Certification Program, it may not be at all what you thought it was all about. It really is about celebrating, encouraging, and teaching.
