Division Notes:




All items must be ready for display. Help us make your pieces look their best! Try to include a small jewelry display
piece or fixture for best possible display and viewing (name on bottom).

Contestant must choose the category that best describes the piece of jewelry being judged.
The judge reserves the right to move an entry to a more appropriate category if entry is entered into a class that does not
apply.
Judging Guidelines:


Class 1: Judging will be on the quality of the beads themselves, not on the composition of a finished jewelry piece.
Beads may be finished into jewelry or mounted for display; however, if contestant’s goal is to have the beads judged on
the finished jewelry piece then it must be entered into the appropriate finished jewelry category.
Class 6: Contestant should identify what type of metalsmithing was used in the piece.


Ship models will be judged on a point system based upon historical accuracy, construction and "WOW" appeal.
Each model is automatically awarded 100 points and errors in accuracy, construction, finish and appeal will be deducted.
A three person team will evaluate each model independently, with the three judges points combined and averaged to
determine the average point level for each model.
Models entered will not be judged against each other.
Categories for Judging:




Historical Account Paper: Each model must have an historical account for the ship or the type of ship the model represents.
This paper should include source of the model (if kit - vendor, if scratch - source of plans and % of model that is scratch) and
scale built in. This should be one page only on 8 ½” x 11" sheet of paper, typed or legibly printed. Point Value 1 – 5
Historical Accuracy: Does the model accurately depict the real ship for the time period modeled? The model will be judged
based on the historical account given with the model, the model as presented and the judge’s personal knowledge of the
subject. Point Value 1 - 10
Construction Value: Is the model well built? Do pieces fit? Are edges cut to fit? Does the paint, varnish or stain look sloppy?
Is everything on the model in proportion? Are there glue marks anywhere? Operational models will be judged as static. The
modeler’s craftsmanship is being evaluated. Point Value 1 - 50
Overall Appeal: Does the model look pleasing to the eye? Does the extra diorama type effects that are made, make it a more
(or less) interesting model (figurines, displays next to the model such as anchors, ships boats, other fittings, etc.)? This is an
evaluation of the models "WOW" appeal. Point Value 1 - 35

be quilted through three layers (top, batting and backing).
Entries must be stitched and quilted by the contestant (or group

Sleeves - Preparing Your Piece:
All entries (except classes 15-19) must
have a sleeve attached securely to the top
edge of the quilt to facilitate its hanging on
a metal rod.
The sleeve may be of muslin or any fabric
sewn or safety pinned to the back of the
quilt (much like a rod heading on a curtain
– absolutely no straight pins). The sleeve
must have a 4” wide opening to
accommodate the metal rod and should be
as long as the quilt width to allow the quilt
to hang smoothly.
Entries over 90” must have a sleeve
attached to the back at 90” from the
bottom for display.
Quilts with scalloped or irregular edge
should have the sleeve positioned, by the
contestant, in such a way as to have the
entire face of the quilt displayed.
Wall hangings must have a sleeve or
means for display hanging. Large pieces
will need a 4” sleeve; smaller pieces may
have dowel or heading for a smaller
hanging device.
Entries in Wall Hangings classes must
have a suitable dowel rod or lath strip,
clearly marked with contestant’s name, for
hanging.
