2024 Rules and Regulations

These entry rules are to be kept and adhered to by each entrant.


The theme of the 2024 Northern Shenandoah Valley Quilt Show (NSVQS) is “My Favorite Color is Plaid!” Any interpretation of the theme may be entered in this special category. Quilts of any style may be entered in the general category. Quilts may be entered into a group challenge if you are a member of that supporting group. 



  1. Registration is open January 1 – February 10, 2024. All entries and emailed pictures must be received by the deadline.

  2. Registration is to be completed online at

  3. Quilts previously entered in the NSVQS will not be accepted.

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

  5. You may enter up to five quilts.

  6. The number of quilts accepted may be limited due to the size our exhibit space or equipment. Quilts accepted on a first come, first serve basis. Registration may close early if we have reached capacity.

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

  8. A four-inch (4”) sleeve must be attached to the back of each quilt so that it may be hung properly for display. Due to the way quilts are hung, even small quilts must have a hanging sleeve. We do not use pins to hang any size quilt!  For instructions on how to make a 4" hanging sleeve, click here.

  9. Each quilt must have the entrant’s name, phone number, and name of the quilt on the back, lower-left corner. If your permanent label is elsewhere on your quilt, please attach a temporary label with the requested information on the back, lower-left corner.

  10. A picture of each registered quilt must be of a completed quilt top. Photos of fabric choices and the pattern to be used are not acceptable. Photos must be taken of the quilt hanging flat, showing the entire quilt from side to side and top to bottom. A .jpeg must be emailed to the registrar at with the quilt title and entrant name in the subject box. The registrar should receive one email per registered item. Your registration will not be complete and space reserved until a photo is received.

  11. Please be aware that you may not receive an email confirmation from the Google registration form – this does not mean that your registration is incomplete, please do not fill out another form. If we receive a photo without a registration form then you will be contacted by the registrar.

Selling your quilt: If you would like to have your quilt available 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 quilts at the Clark County Parks and Recreation Center (CCPRC) on Thursday, April 11 between the hours of 9:30 A.M. and 11:30 A.M.  Your quilts will be signed in, tagged, and a receipt will be given to the person bringing in the quilts. You must keep this receipt, as you must have them in order to have your quilts 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 quilts at the CCPRC between 4:45 P.M. and 5:30 P.M. on Sunday, April 14. 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! Please wait in the lobby until you are directed to the pickup area.

  4. When picking up your quilts please have your receipt ready that you were given at registration on Thursday. It is proof of ownership and is required when picking up your quilts. No items will be released without the receipt!

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