Hershey Quilt Show – Quilt Odyssey

Hershey 2014

DATES: JULY 20-23, 2017


Hershey Lodge and Convention Center


ALL CLASSES AND LECTURES for 2017 will be on the website in late February. Registration will open in March (TBD). This should give you time to read over all the classes and lectures. We have some new teachers this year and quite a few new longarm teachers. REGISTRATION IS OPEN UNTIL JULY 5. AFTER THIS DATE, YOU MAY REGISTER AT THE SHOW. THE LAST DATE TO CANCEL IS JUNE 10.
  • Special Exhibits
  • Finalists from the annual contest
  • Retrospect of Margaret Solomon Gunn’s award-winning quilts
  • Great line-up of nationally and internationally renowned instructors.
  • Registration opens on March 26 at noon. Come join our family of quilters!
ADMISSION INFORMATIONIf you want to come to the show and see the exhibits and shop in our Merchants Mall, but do not want to take classes or lectures, you do not have to register ahead of time. Our admissions desk is open at 9am each morning, a full hour before the show opens at 10am. You can buy a one-day pass for $10 or a multi-day pass for $15. Children 6-12 are $5 for a one-day pass and $10 for a multi-day pass. If you have bought a one-day pass and want to return, simply go to admissions with your band still in tact on your wrist and pay the difference of $5. The admissions staff will cut off your old band and secure the multi-day band on your wrist – and you’re good to go!

  • Complete entry form

  • Submit two 35mm color slides or digital pictures for each entry: one of the whole quilt and one close-up. (Digital pictures are now permitted as long as they haven’t been retouched in any way. Save them as a jpeg and put them on a CD.) You may use one CD for multiple entries.

  • Label slides/CD with entrant’s name, and quilt title  (and an arrow to indicate the top of the slide).

  • Check/MO to Quilt Odyssey for $15 for each entry. You may use one check for multiple entries.

  • Send slides/CD, completed entry form, registration fee(s), and a self-addressed stamped envelope large enough to hold your slides or CDs.  We must receive your entry materials postmarked by April 30, 2016.

    Hi Darlene,
    Thank you for your question. We don’t sell tickets beforehand unless you plan to take classes. Then pre-registration is encouraged. However, we open our admissions desk at 9am, a full hour before the show opens. There is a coffee shop and plenty of tables and chairs to relax before the show opens if you want to come early to avoid the lines. Also, if you come early, parking will be easier (parking is free).
    All the best,
    Missy Molino

    I’ve been trying to get to the website for Quilt Odyssey but can’t seem to connect to it. Does anyone know if the website is down or what the correct link is? I’m already registered but wanted to register for another class. Thanks very much!

    I wish to enter a quilt in the Quilt Odyssey show and I am looking for a registration form before the deadline!

    The deadline for Quilt Odyssey’s annual contest is April 30 each year, so you missed it for this year. But there’s always next year!
    Thanks for your interest!

    I was wondering when contest winners will be announced and if that info will be online? Thank you.
