Hundreds of beautiful quilts will hang full

Founder's Hall. There is always a brand new kaleidoscope of color,
pattern, size and design. Once a quilt has been exhibited
it can not be re-entered into this popular show. Entries accepted in
Donna L Kooistra, AQS Certified Quilt Appraiser and member of the Professional Association of Appraisers of Quilted Textiles will be available to appraise newly constructed quilts, antique, traditional, and non-traditional quilts for insurance replacement value, fair market value, and donation value. For many years, Donna has participated in classes and lectures on fabric dating and identification, technique, construction, documentation, ethics, and current trends to determine values of quilted textiles offered by national quilt organizations as well as those by local shops and appraisers.
Quilt appraisals will be done at the Sauder Village Quilt Show in Founder’s Hall by appointment only on Thursday, April 30, and Friday, May 1, from 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Once we receive your quilt registration, you will be contacted to set up an appointment time. Appointments are in 30 minute increments and will be filled in order of receipt of registration. The appraisal fee is $50.00 per quilt and must be prepaid. (If for any reason you cannot attend your appointment, your fee will be refunded less a 10% processing fee.) You must pay the Quilt Show admission cost of $11.00 (or $16 for Sauder Village admission) to enter the show and you will be directed to the Quilt Appraisal area.
If you have a quilt hanging in the show, you have the opportunity to have your quilt appraised by indicating it on your Quilt Registration Form along with payment. Quilts will be appraised while the quilt is hanging in the show. When you register your quilt(s) for the show, you will receive a confirmation letter with an Appraisal Form to fill out and bring when you deliver your quilt(s) to Founder's Hall on Sunday, April 26, between 1:30 – 4:00 p.m.
On Saturday, May 2, Donna will be offering walk-in appraisals from 10:00 a.m. – Noon. No registrations are taken for this time period. You must pay the Quilt Show admission cost of $11.00 (or $16 for Sauder Village admission) to enter and you will be directed to the Quilt Appraisal area. The Quilt Appraisal fee is $50.00 per guest.
