Quilt Drop-off

The Quilt Show is held at the Franklin County Visitor Center located at 15 South Main St., Chambersburg.  Guild Members will bring their quilts placed in a pillowcase to the Quilt show location on Tuesday, September 21, 10 AM – 4:30 PM at the Visitors Center or to Linda Hartman’s house on Monday evening, September 20 between 5 PM and 7 PM at 763 Tristan Trail, Chambersburg, PA 17202-7339, Cell phone 717-360-7110.  The evening hours are for Guild members who work during the day.  

Each quilt must be placed into a separate pillowcase, with the Guild Member name, quilt name, and phone number on the outside of the pillowcase. This will be returned to you, with your quilt, when you pick it up.

A quilt hanging sleeve and a cloth label must be sewn or placed on the back of each quilt. The cloth label must include the Guild Member Name and Quilt title.  The Quilt Sleeve and  Label Information are available in the “Downloads” section on the Web site.


Quilt Drop Dates:

Monday, September 20, 5 PM -7 PM at Linda Hartman’s house.

Tuesday, September 21, 10 AM – 4:30 PM at Franklin County Visitors Center.


Quilt Pick-up

After the Quilt Show is over on Friday, November 5, the takedown committee will begin removing the quilts from the frames on Monday, November 8 and Tuesday, November 9.  After all the quilts are taken down, the Pick-up process will begin on Wednesday, November 10.  One reason we wait until all quilts are taken down and sorted into the appropriate stack is that many Guild Members have more than one quilt registered, and it is more efficient to return all their quilts at once.  The time for picking up your quilts on Wednesday will be between 10 AM and 3 PM.  If a quilter works during the day on Wednesday, they can pick up their quilt on Saturday, November

13, between 10 AM and 12 PM before the Guild Monthly Meeting. Guild Members are encouraged to bring their white ticket(s) with them to pick-up their quilts.  It makes the verification process easier. 

Quilt Pick-up Dates:

Wednesday, November 10, 10 AM – 3 PM at Franklin County Visitors Center.

Saturday, November 13, 10 AM – 12:00 PM at Franklin County Visitors Center.
