QUILT DISPLAY AND JUDGING
All judged entries must be quilted. This means they must have at least three layers, held together by stitching. The only exception will be items in the special technique category and youth quilts; refer to category descriptions for details. Other items may be displayed in the non-judged category.
The North Star Quilters Guild reserves the right to refuse quilts that are not clean, that smell of smoke, are covered with pet hair, or are otherwise not suitable for display. If your quilt is not accepted due to these reasons, your entry fee will be refunded. Please look your quilt over carefully prior to quilt take in.
Entries may be limited depending on available space. Entries exhibited for judging in previous North Star Quilters Guild quilt shows will not be accepted.
The North Star Quilters Guild reserves the right to place quilts in a more appropriate category or to consolidate categories if there are insufficient entries in a single category.
North Star Quilters Guild and the Alerus Center will not be responsible for any damage, loss, or theft. Check your homeowner’s or renter’s insurance for coverage. Contact your insurance agent for further information. Keep a photo and description to substantiate any possible claim. During show hours guild members and helpers will patrol the display area, and security is provided by the Alerus Center. After hours, the Alerus Center and Quilt Show Exhibit Area are locked.
First, second, and third place ribbons will be awarded in each category except Category 13. An additional prize of $100 will be awarded for Viewers’ Choice, Judge’s Choice, and Best of Show. The Red River Machine Quilters Guild will also sponsor a $100 award for the best long arm machine quilting.
The North Star Quilters Guild reserves the right not to award ribbons if specific criteria are not met. The quilt show judge may decide whether there will be duplicate ribbons awarded in any category and may make special awards.
Items will be photographed by the North Star Quilters Guild for archival and publicity purposes.
Quilts must be picked up between 5:30 pm–6:00 pm on Saturday, October 26, at the Alerus Center.
You MUST have your quilt claim tickets.
(Your quilt will be shipped if you indicated that on your quilt entry form.)
