2023 Quilt Entry Rules and 
Online Quilt Entry Form

Sierra Mountain Quilters Association 23rd Quilt Show 

"Gateway to Yosemite"

May 20th - May 21st 2023

Welcome to our online Quilt Entry Form

If you are entering more than one quilt it is necessary for each one to be entered individually. The deadline for entry is April 7, 2023.

So that you can be prepared before you sit down to fill out the online form, here are the questions you will be answering... and by the way, if this form is any way too complicated or intimidating, ask a young friend or relative, quilty buddy or our webmaster Sally Walker or Quilt Show Chair Constance Peterson to help you. Maria at Bear Paw says stop by on a Friday and she will lend you a hand. If you want to enter, we will make it happen.
