Judy Taylor

Judy has been a professional longarm quilter for more than 13 years.  She specializes in quilting for show quilts and is a longarm teacher who strives to instill a love of quilting, a joy of accomplishment, and an appreciation for the art and craft of longarming to her students.  

Judy is a Past President of  the National Quilting Association, Inc. (NQA), the Arizona Quilters Guild (AQG) and Arizona Longarm Quilters Association (AZLAQ).  She also served as Co-Director of the NQA 2012-2013 Annual Quilt Shows and the 2008 and 2011 Annual AQG Quilt Shows.  In 2010, she was recognized for her leadership and commitment to AQG, as the recipient of its annual Member of the Year Award.  

Since 2006, Judy has judged approximately 8,400 quilts. and aided at shows reflecting in excess of 5,000 quilts.  Judy became a National Quilting Association (NQA) Certified Judge in 2011. She fulfilled the standards established by the NQA for the Master Quilt Award Program and became qualified to evaluate Masterpiece quilts in 2014.  She is also a charter member of the National Association of Certified Quilt Judges (NAQCJ). She currently judges on a local, regional and national level and prides herself on always providing constructive, supportive, and meaningful judging comments.  

Being an NAQCJ and NQA Certified Judge allows Judy to pursue her passion and joy for all things quilting.  She not only finds it  inspiring, but also exciting to learn new techniques, patterns and quilting designs from quilters and their quilts across the country. Judy loves to encourage quilters to continue their mastery of quilting and to display their quilts in other venues, so they can share their accomplishments with their fellow quilters and the general public.

Kathi Eubank

Kathi Eubank has been working in judging rooms - local to national - for several years. For over ten years she has been an active participant in the Machine Quilters Showcase (MQS®) judging room and is now the MQS® Judging Room Coordinator.  She is currently enrolled in NQA's Judges Certification Program.

​​​​The NQA Judges Certification Program prepares candidates to perform the task of judging quilts of all levels with an expert eye and attention to detail.  In order to pass this rigorous program, NQA requires that a candidate must “demonstrate experience judging quilt shows and knowledge in all areas of quilt design and construction.”  Every candidate is required to complete paperwork that includes answering a list of questions in order to prove an in-depth knowledge of judging procedures and quilting techniques.  After the paperwork is accepted, the next step is a panel review during which the candidate must perform in front of a team of certified judges where quick-thinking and confidence in one’s knowledge are challenged. 

While judging a show, Kathi views each quilt for what it is – work that is treasured by the quiltmaker.  Every quilt is given a thorough review with comments to reward work well done but also to give constructive criticism in an effort to help the quiltmaker improve their skills. A judge does not teach; a judge praises and encourages.
