 Quilt Show Registration is Now Live! to register your quilts for the 2018 show. 

*Plea from the people in charge of this important volunteer task: “Please enter your quilts earlier rather than later, even if you don’t have them completed.  We check all entries for proper grammar, spelling, category, etc., so that is easier to do if we get 2 or 3 entries a day rather than 20 entries a day.  You may enter any recent work that has not been in a previous Patchers show”.  

*You must identify yourself as a Palouse Patchers when you register to be eligible to enter in the two Quilt Show Challenges.  This option will not display unless you mark you are a Palouse Patcher.

* Palouse Patchers reserves the right to refuse to display a work.

*Entries must be submitted by Tuesday, April 3, 2018.

* Deliver all entered items to the fairgrounds, 1021 Harold Street, Moscow on Friday, April 13, 7-9am. You will be given a claim check when your quilt is received.  If you cannot make these times, please arrange to have your quilts delivered by a friend.

*After the show, present your claim check at the fairgrounds between 4:30 and 5 pm on Sunday, April 15, 2018, to pick up your quilt.
