For PVQA members only
As discussed at the November General Meeting, quality standards have been established for pictures of quilts and other items. Because we want to uphold the high standards and good reputation of PVQA quilt shows, items that don’t meet these standards will not be accepted for publication in the virtual show. However, since not everyone has the capability of producing an image that meets the criteria, we have arranged for a convenient and low-cost solution.
Greg and Sara Roche have volunteered to assist PVQA members wanting help to take photographs of their quilts/items for the show. This service is for PVQA members only. The following information applies ONLY for quilt entries where the entrant wants help with photographing their quilt/item. It does NOT apply to submissions where entrants supply their own images.
Each quilt submission allows for two images. There will be a $10 charge for the first photograph, which includes one side of the quilt/item plus a detail image. If, instead of the detail image, you wish the photographer to shoot the back of the quilt as the second photo, there will be a second $10 charge due to extra labor involved.
You must first submit your online entry without photos.
Print a copy of the entry form that is emailed to you. You must safety pin this entry form to the bottom left corner of your quilt. Pin a check/money order payable to PVQA for $10 or $20 for each entry to the quilt with the entry form.
On this printed entry form, write any directions you have for the photographer. If clear instructions are not provided by the entrant, the photographers will use their discretion for photographing the item.
- Describe how the photographer will know the top of the quilt/item or mark the top using a tag and a safety pin.
- If you wish a detail photo for your second photo, describe the detail that you want AND mark your detail using a safety pin.
Make sure to close all safety pins.
If you are submitting a quilt that is larger than 90 inches on a side, you must place a hanging sleeve on the quilt. Quilts smaller than 90 inches do not need a hanging sleeve.
Between Saturday, November 14 and Saturday, January 2, 2021, you may drop your quilt/item off at one of the drop off points below. No quilts/items to be photographed will be accepted after January 2, 2021. No exceptions.
There are three drop off points for your convenience. You may take your quilt/s directly to:
- Home of Sara Roche (La Selva Beach) email@example.com
- Home of Kristie Shulman (Scotts Valley) firstname.lastname@example.org
- Home of Nancy Gonzalez Caro (Capitola) email@example.com
You will be able to pick up your quilt/item at your drop off point after
it has been photographed and returned. You will be contacted when your quilt is
ready for pick up.
