Certificate of Excellence – Sandra Swarbrick

This episode we take a behind-the-scenes look at the Certificate of Excellence, a self-study program developed and administered by the Handweaver’s Guild of America. We talk to Sandra Swarbrick, a past president of HGA about the origins of the COE. Then relate the story of the recent 2006 COE examination in handweaving from the point of view of an examiner, a scribe, and Level I and Level II applicants.
