Quilt drop-off takes place Saturday the week before the Show.
Quilt pick-up takes place Sunday after the end of the Show.
All quilts must remain on display throughout the Show.
All quilts, except for very small ones and some exceptions as determined at Quilt Drop-Off, must be able to be folded while with NSQG.
NSQG has arranged for special handling of quilts with sharp embellishments, frames or rods, or quilts that cannot be folded. While every effort will be made to ensure the well-being of these quilts, NSQG will not be responsible for the safety of such a quilt.

QUILT DROP-OFF Procedures:
– Prior to drop-off or shipping, all quilts must have the number label and sleeve sewn on.
– Quilts must be clean and in excellent show-ready condition. Pet hair and/or smoke and strong odors that might be transferred to someone else’s quilt will disqualify an entry. Quilts will be inspected at Quilt Drop-Off and will not be accepted if they do not meet these requirements.
– A Quilt Claim Card will be given out when quilts are dropped off, or mailed to you if quilts are shipped. This card, signed by you, will be required in order for you or your representative to claim your quilt at the close of the show.
QUILT RETURN Procedures:
While every effort will be made to start the pick-up process earlier, we can only guarantee that quilt distribution will begin at 5:00pm. Please check in at 4:30pm on Sunday to receive a pick-up number and your judging comment card and any ribbons. Quilt return will end at 6:00pm.
Any quilts not picked up end of pickup Sunday will be held by the Quilt Registrar until the owner contacts the Quilt Registrar and makes arrangements for its return. Prepaid shipped quilts will be sent out the following week.
For the safety and protection of your quilt, you must present your Quilt Claim Card before your quilt will be returned to you. If someone else is picking up your quilt, you must sign your Quilt Claim Card and give it to that person.
