Valuation Qualification

I am pleased to say that after two and a half years of on the job training I am now a qualified quilt Valuer with Victorian Quilters.

On the first Monday of the month we meet at a church hall in Hawthorn and value quilts for insurance purposes. The hall can be very cold in winter and hot in summer but we get to be up close and personal with a great variety of quilts ranging from traditional to art quilts. I love seeing the beautiful quilts and it can be quite amazing how detailed some quilts are.

I also get to catch up with the other valuers and trainee valuers and find out the latest quilting news.

As well as having a value put on your quilt, it is a record in case your quilt is lost or damaged in any way.

Here is my certificate and badge.

Bye for now,

Thanks Desley,
You never know which way your life will turn, but I never expected to say that I was a quilt valuer!

Well done, it's very interesting isn't it? I head to Adelaide tomorrow for valuation day. I do have a nice badge, but they don't hand out certificates in SA.
