Tracey Lawko, retired CQA/ACC Certified Quilt Judge

Tracey received her Quilt Judge Certification from the Canadian Quilters Association in 2013 following a 2-year apprenticeship. Her judging experience covered a broad range of events including local Guilds’ Members’ Challenges, large regional quilt shows and the National Juried Show (NJS) of the Canadian Quilters Association. She had the honour of judging the NJS at Quilt Canada in Halifax, NS in 2012, in Mississauga, ON in 2016, and virtually in 2021.

Tracey brought her broad knowledge of the textile arts to her judging. Her own quilts and textile artwork have been juried into many prestigious North American shows. She has won numerous awards for her quilting, longarming, embroidery and fibre art. Her strong knowledge of the principles and elements of design and keen eye for workmanship enabled her to assess a variety of textile artwork from traditional quilts to innovative fibre art.
