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.

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 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.

– Prior to drop-off or shipping, all quilts must have their number label attached to the lower right hand corner (as viewed from the back) and a sleeve sewn on.

– 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.

– If you choose to ship your quilt, it must be received by the Friday before drop-off Saturday.

– 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.

– Coming later for drop-off is generally less busy than first thing.


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
