2019 ENTRY FORM
You must be a Guild member to submit an entry or to sponsor a Youth entry. If this is not a Youth entry, you must be the maker and/or the quilter of the item.
This is the number on your membership card.
1 is the highest priority. *** There is no limit on the number of entries you can submit, except that you are limited to 2 large bed quilts.. *** However, if there are too many quilts submitted for the display space available, some entries will be withdrawn from the main categories, lower priorities first, and equitably among all members with multiple entries. You are guaranteed acceptance of your top priority main category entry and your top priority entry in each special category. The decisions of the registrar will be final.

These systems can be computer-controlled, where the machine is not moved by the operator, or hand-controlled, where it is moved by the operator
