  4. All quilts entered must have been completed within the last five years.

  5. You may enter up to 5 quilts.

  6. The number of large bed quilts may be limited due to the size our exhibit space. Quilts will be accepted on a first come first serve basis.

  7. Only loose, folded quilts may be entered. No items framed, mounted or on stretcher bars will be accepted due to exhibit space limitations.

Photos must be taken of the quilt hanging flat, showing the entire quilt from side to side and top to bottom. A .jpeg no larger than 10 MB must be emailed to the registrar at nsvquilts@gmail.com with the quilt name in the subject box.  The registrar should receive one email for each registered item.

Selling your quilt: If you would like to have your quilt for sale please indicate so on the registration form. You will be emailed additional information after your registration has been received.

Drop off and Pick-up of quilt entries:


The Clark County Parks and Recreation Center is located at 225 Al Smith Circle, Berryville, VA.


  1. You must drop off your item(s) at the Clark County Parks and Recreation Center (CCPRC) on Thursday, April 21 between the hours of 9:30 A.M. and 11:30 A.M.  Your item(s) will be signed in, tagged, and a receipt for each item will be given to the person bringing in the item(s). You must keep these receipts, as you must have them in order to have your item(s) returned to you when you pick them up on Sunday.

  2. To make the process faster once you arrive, please have your quilt folded with the BACK out, corner on top, so that your label is showing.

  3.  You must pick up your item(s) at the CCPRC between 4:45 P.M. and 5:30 P.M. on Sunday, April 24. Every effort will be made to have all quilts available for pick-up by 4:45 P.M. Please trust that our volunteers will be preparing them as quickly as possible for pickup, but it is possible that you may have a short wait. We greatly appreciate patience from all participants!

  4. When picking up your item(s) please have your receipt(s) ready that you were given at registration on Thursday. They are proof of ownership and are required when picking up your item(s). No items will be released without the receipt(s)!

  5. You must sign for each item that you pick up. If you are personally not able to pick up your item(s), please inform us at the time of drop off and make sure your representative has your receipt(s) or your item(s) will not be released.
