Coming to the 2017 Conference in Lincoln? Bring your quilt - we will be accepting quilts at the registration desk. YOU MUST COMPLETE YOUR SUBMISSION FORM FIRST!!
When you complete your submission form, you have the option to include a digital image (jpg format) of your quilt. This image must be good quality: evenly lit, in focus, no smaller than the preferred size of 1200 x 1200 pixels, with the background edited to pure white or cropped close to the edges of the square. Do not crop the edges of your quilt.
SAQA will be taking professional photos of submissions without photos (or those that don't meet the above guidelines). If you are particular about how your image will appear (colors, quality, lighting), please submit your own photo with your submission.
NOTE: Quilts will not be posted to the website until a good quality image is available.
Once you complete the online submission form, you will receive a confirmation email. Print this email out and include it with your shipment. If you didn't receive an email (check your Spam folders), contact email@example.com to ensure that your form went through.

Please use tissue paper or bubble wrap to protect your work in shipping and use an appropriately sized box or padded envelope. Do NOT fold your quilt to make it fit.
Packing should not include scented garbage bags, peanuts, confetti, shredded paper, scented plastic or padded envelopes filled with linty fuzz - all these things make a mess when opening the package. And the confetti and fuzzy stuff sticks to the quilts. Finally, please resist the urge to wrap up the entire package with lots of tape (a special request from our shipping personnel). Thank you!
Mail your donation with a tracking number whenever possible. If needed, our shipping phone number is 216-333-9146.
If you are in the US, the fastest (generally only 2-3 days) and cheapest way to send your donation is by USPS Priority Mail.
If you live outside of the US, send your piece early enough to arrive by the deadline, including time to clear Customs. Be advised that it can take up to 3 weeks for boxes to clear customs.
All quilts must be received by the June 1st deadline! Questions? Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
