Quilt drop-off takes place Saturday the week before the Show.
Quilt pick-up takes place Sunday at the end of the Show.
All quilts must remain on display throughout the Show.

Special Handling
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 do not fold.
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.

For further information, contact registrar@northernstarquilters.com

– Quilt Drop-Off – or – Quilt Pick-Up
for date, time, location and details specific to this year.


– Prior to drop-off, all quilts must have their number label attached to the lower right hand corner (as viewed from the back), a sleeve sewn on, and any personal identification temporarily covered with a sewn on patch (no masking tape).

– Quilts must be clean and in excellent show-ready condition. Pet hair, smoke, or 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, needed to reclaim your quilt, will be given to you when your quilt is dropped off.

If you are not able to bring your quilt to the scheduled Drop-off, please make arrangements with another guild member to do it for you or contact the registrar for possible alternatives.   NO QUILTS WILL BE ACCEPTED AFTER DROP-OFF DAY.

QUILT PICK-UP Procedure:

While every effort will be made to start the pick-up process as early as possible, 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 by then will be held by the Quilt Registrar until the owner contacts the Quilt Registrar and makes arrangements for its return.

For the safety and protection of all quilts, you must present your signed 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 that person must hand it in.

STEP 1.  Please proceed to the cafe across the lobby from the quilt display area where you will –
— a) Receive a group number.
— b) Pick up your judging envelope.
