Kenya now boasts two certified patchwork quilt judges! We are pleased to have these two new professionally qualified quilt judges as part of the quilting community in Kenya.

Gill Rebelo and Dena Crain both earned their official patchwork quilt judge certification during the 16th South African National Quilt Festival in Stellenbosch, South Africa. The presentations were made during the “Alive with Colour” Prize-Giving Dinner on June 26, hosted by the Good Hope Quilters’ Guild and were awarded to each candidate by their tutors Sue Prins, Jenny Hermans, Elsa Brits and Odette Tolksdorf.

Gill’s and Dena’s successes were duly acknowledged by the Kenya Quilt Guild at our last meeting.
