This year we are proud to welcome Lisa back as one of our show's quilt judges. She will also be appraising quilts for people who wish to schedule with her. Download the Appraisal Application from the Applications page and follow those instructions.
Lisa has a Master of Arts degree in Public Communication from the University of North Texas. She is a quilt collector, an AQS Certified Appraiser of Quilted Textiles, lecturer, quilt show judge, teacher and quilt historian. If that's not enough to make her tired, she also owns Le Retreat House in Gainesville, Texas.
Even though she learned to sew as a child, she did not become a quilter until 1991 and never looked back. She is a past president of the American Quilt Study Group, speaks internationally, teaches, judges quilt shows, and much more.
She wrote the pattern instructions for quilts made by AQSG members and published in the 2013 book “Revival! A Study of Early 20th Century Colonial Revival Quilts” published by Kansas City Star Books. She served as the designer for the latest AQSG book: “In War Time: A Study of Civil War Era Quilts 1850 – 1865.”
