General Quilt Show Information
We Need Your Quilts
We pride ourselves in featuring a large number of quilts and other quilted items in our quilt show. We encourage all of our members to register at least one quilt in the show, no matter your experience.
We group the quilts into categories; the larger bed quilts and lap quilts are placed around the arena. We will have preemies on display. There are generally sections for Christmas, table runners, wall hangings, and baby quilts. Wearables and bags are also welcome. Items for the 2017 challenges (President's red and white, Crayon, Baby quilt) will be grouped together.
The rules for entering a quilted item are:
You must register each item that you are providing for the show. This includes any items made for the 2016-2017 challenges.
Registration must be completed by Wednesday, April 26 so the printed labels can be ready to attach to the items at the show.
Click here to access the Registration form
In the Registration Form provide the requested information and click Submit. A message will appear "Thank you. Your information has been submitted."
To register another item, return to the registration form:
You'll receive a confirmation email message from the guild for each registered item that will contain the information you provided, and a unique item number. Please retain these email messages for your future reference. You will need to pin a slip of paper with this unique item number, your name, and the quilt name to the bottom right corner of the item when you bring it to the show.
Please contact the guild if you have any questions about this registration process.
Drop Off & Pick Up
You can drop off your quilts on Friday, April 28 at the Nick Smith arena from 8:30 AM - 11:00 AM. We will have you sign our register to confirm we have all your registered quilts. If this time is not possible, please contact Joyce Murray at 613-623-5513 and we will be happy to make other arrangements.
On Sunday, quilts can be picked up and signed out after the show closes at 4 PM. To respect that some folks may still be at the quilt show looking around, we would ask that no quilts be taken down prior to 4 PM.
The quilt show is possible only with your help. The camaraderie with helping at such a community event is satisfying. There are lots of volunteer opportunities available. Help is needed both in the quilt show proper, and in the tea room. Sign-up lists will be posted at the March 22nd guild meeting.
