COMPLETE SHIPPING PREFERENCES
Using the information provided in the guide, contestants will complete their return shipping preferences: Continental U. S. Shipping, International (including Alaska, Hawaii, and all U. S. Territories) Shipping, Pre-Paid FEdEx or UPS Shipping Label, or In-Person Pick up. (A “Hold” option is available for some shows.) Contestants also have the option to request an appraisal during the selection process. (Note: Written appraisals will be mailed approximately 30 days after the show.)
Once most of the quilts have been received, they are checked in, put in a brand new box specifically designed for shipping quilts (except irregular packages or tubes), labeled for return shipping to you or the place you designated, and then organized by categories. The quilts are then transported to the show (in their box/tube) where they will be placed in their designated area for hanging. At the close of the show, your quilt is placed back into your box/tube and taped so that it is ready to be shipped out. Once the quilts return to our facility, they are shipped usually no later than the Tuesday following the close of the show to their designated destination. Quilts are NOT handled or repackaged after returning to our facility from the show.
