The Golden Quilter Awards

Kari Carr sent me a note about the Golden Quilter Awards last week that I haven’t had a chance to post until now. The last chance to vote is February 28 – that’s this week! – with the awards ceremony to take place March 1.

I have been working on a BERNINA project and at the same time became aware of  “award” nominations in the quilting realm. SewCalGal is once again sponsoring the Golden Quilter Awards, and quilting enthusiasts from around the world have nominated their favorites in eleven different categories. Since BERNINA was on my mind while looking over the nominees on SewCalGal’s site, I noticed that there were quite a few BERNINA people represented in the running for the Golden Quilter Awards.

Check out – and vote for! – our peeps in the following categories:
