Quilt drop off

Thank you for entering the 2018 Empire QuiltFest. We are very excited about the response to our quilt show and look forward to seeing you there. Your quilt(s) may be dropped off at the following locations:

Sunday April 22, 2018 - 11 am-4 pm

Joyful Quilter
19 Glenridge Road
Scotia, NY 12302

Tuesday, April 24, 2018 - 2-6 pm

Log Cabin Fabrics

Wednesday, April 25, 2018 - 3-6 pm

Johnstown, NY 12095


Each quilt exhibited in the show must have a 6” sleeve sewn on the back. To make a 6” sleeve, measure the width of the quilt and cut a piece of fabric the width x 12 1/2”. Stitch the short ends to hide raw edges. Fold strip in half lengthwise with right sides together. Stitch the length of the sleeve. Turn inside out and hand-stitch the top and bottom of the sleeve to the back at the top of your quilt.

Apply a label to the bottom right hand corner on the back of your quilt containing the following information:

your name and address,
the title of your quilt and
your registration number.

If you are having your quilt judged, all labels must be covered with the included removable piece of muslin (this can be pinned or basted in place).

Your quilt will not be accepted without this label!

Please place your quilt in a solid color pillowcase clearly marked with all label information in large print so our volunteers can easily read it on the pillowcase.

You will be given a receipt at the time you drop off your quilt. It is very important that you keep this receipt in a safe place. If someone else is going to pick up your quilt, they must have the receipt. We take the responsibility for your quilt seriously and appreciate your co-operation with these precautions.


All quilts must be picked up at Shenendehowa High School East on Sunday, April 29, between 5:00 PM and 6:00 PM. No quilts will be given out before this time.

Again, we thank you for your participation in the show and look forward to seeing you in April. Please feel free to call Ceci VanDenburgh at 518-736-1874 should you have any questions.
