2019 Quilt Show – Entry Form, Categories & Challenges

Quilt Show Intake and Outtake Procedures. 

By now most of you will have received your quilt A/B forms with instructions on where to place Part A of the form on your quilt and drop off times.

The Insie/outsie committee will then look after sorting them, handing them off to the Upsie/downsie committee, and affixing the information cards to each quilt.  

Picking up your quilts after the show:

In an effort to return quilts as quickly and smoothly as possible, we will be implementing a new procedure.  After the Upsie/downsie committee has returned all the quilts to the central area and have been sorted we will begin the return process.  We ask that you form a line outside the door where you initially dropped your quilts off on Thursday. Members will be received one at a time, present their Part B forms, and a runner will then get the quilts for you.  You will be required to initial receipt of your quilts and you can then exit the arena through the main entrance.

In the event of rain, the lineup will be reversed I.e., you will line up in the outer ring of the arena and exit through the outside door of the registration area.

We anticipate that this process will not take any more time than it has in previous years and will be much less chaotic for everyone.   Looking forward to another great show!

Quilt Show Information

Arrangements have been made to have the concession stand open for Thursday during our quilt show set up so we can grab lunch or beverages throughout the day.

Please remember to wear your WQG nametag during the quilt show while you are volunteering.  We have some chatelaines to wear as well.

Don’t forget to pick up your voting ballot Thursday night or Friday.
