Thimble Tales

Brenda Grampsas is an American Quilter's Society, Paducah, KY, Certified Appraiser of quilts and quilted textiles, certified in 2005.  This certification was obtained following several years of study, mentoring by a certified appraiser, and passing a rigorous testing process which included written and verbal exams.  She is a member of the Professional Association of Appraisers Quilted Textiles.  

Brenda is a quilt maker and this is a huge plus when appraising the work of others.  Needle turn applique is her favorite method of creating a new quilt. However, she never met a quilt she doesn't like and enjoys mixed pieced, applique & emboridery techniques to create quilts. Scrappy quilts are among her favorites because of her passion for fabric.
