Instructions on getting your quilt back:
You have three choices for the return of your quilt(s), as follows:
Option 1: Collect at the end of the show
Free of Charge
Option 2: Collect from BBEL in West Sussex
All quilts that are posted back or taken to Bill Bowden Event Logistics for collection will be repackaged by our teams of Quilt Angels. The re-packing takes place at speed on the evening of Sunday 6th August, so while we will try our best to return your quilt in its original packaging, this isn’t always possible due to the high volume of quilts and the short time frame.
You can collect your quilt from BBEL any time between 9.30am and 8.00pm on Tuesday 8th August, and between 8.00am and 8.00pm from Wednesday 9th – Friday 11th August 2023.
See ‘Getting Your Entry to Us’ for address details.
The cost for using BBEL to collect your quilt is £8.00
Option 3: Return by Post/Courier
To return your quilt by post / courier we use our reliable, experienced and long standing freight partner Bill Bowden Event Logistics. Depending on where you are in the world, they will work with other local carriers to get your quilt back quickly and safely.
With over 700 quilts to return in limited time, we regret that it is totally impractical to weigh and price each piece individually so our prices are standardised based on ‘small’, ‘medium’ and ‘large’ quilts. These prices are heavily subsidised by the organisers (particularly the overseas entries).
We anticipate that quilts to UK addresses will be returned by Friday 11th August 2023.
