 ENTRY PREPARATIONS:
         
                    LABELS: Each entry must have a label.

The label must include your name, title of the entry, and address. Please SEW labels securely to quilts on the lower left corner in the back. SEW labels securely to garments on the inside of the garment and attach securely to dolls or 3-D items under the base of the items. For judging, labels must be covered with fabric (please baste in place - do not use pins) so that maker(s) of items will remain anonymous during judging.
