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.


To register, click "login" above and fill out "create new account" BEFORE YOU SELECT ANY CLASSES OR LECTURES. If you already have an account, just log on to it first before you select anything. Then place your mouse over the "show" item in the grey navigation menu and click on classes/lectures, memorabilia, etc to register for classes and lectures or to order merchandise. When you are finished, go to "cart" and it will show you what you have ordered. You can make adjustments at this time. When you are finished, proceed to checkout and fill in all info. Once the transaction is completed, you can download and print out your invoice.

this is your confirmation also. If you experience any problems, please call 717-423-5148.

If a class you want is full, you can click on the "buy" button. It will not put you in the class, but it will register your email address and, if someone cancels that class, you will receive an email letting you know that there is an opening in that class. Please make sure your email address is correct.

A few pointers for registering: The best way to have the best chance to get the classes you want is to create an account online ahead of time. Remember that your username and password are CaSe SeNSiTIvE. If you set up your account before registration opens, you will be ready to select classes you want without any problems. PLEASE WRITE YOUR USERNAME AND PASSWORD DOWN SO YOU CAN REFER TO IT. Most of our phone calls are from quilters who have forgotten their passwords.

* It's okay to sign up for your friends - as long as they have their own account (be sure to get their usernames and passwords from them). DO NOT use your account to register for someone else. Each Registrant must have their own separate account. If you use your account for someone else, you will not be able to get into the same class - the system will only allow one space per registrant.

* If you can't get into your account, instead of creating a new one, follow the prompts asking if you've forgotten your username or password. If you still can't get into your account, call us and we'll help to find your old account. This way, you'll be credited for each year you attend QO and you'll get your 5-year, 10-year and 15-year pins on time. Our number is 717-423-5148.

  Classes Available
Online Class Registration
Classes will be available for registration starting in March.

Our registration system online features real-time sign-ups. What this means is that when you sign up for a class online, you will know immediately if you have that spot because it will appear in your cart. Mail in registration, while still available, will not be as immediate. If the class is full, it will not show up in your cart and you will not be charged.


Get your quilt memorabilia early. By ordering online, you guarantee that your pin, tote and T-shirt will be waiting for you when you arrive. This year’s pin, tote & T-shirt has been designed by Mimi Dietrich and Norma Campbell.

Appraisals can be scheduled online as well. If you want to get your quilt appraised, create an account (unless you already have one) and log in: you can "lock in" your time slot right on the web page. Choose which times are convenient and we will affirm your times with you via email or schedule.


Don’t forget to make reservations for the show. Our host site is once again the Hershey Lodge. Make sure to book early. Other hotels are also available.


See Accommodations for other hotels and information on roommates.

Groups are always welcome! Go to GROUP TOURS under "SHOW" and download the Group Tour Form.

We are working on a newer better website after all the hassles we've had in previous years. So there may be changes to proceedures. We will post them as soon as we know of any to keep you informed. Hopefully, this site will be able to accept registrations online. This means that when you select a class online after creating and logging in to your account, your seat will immediately be reserved for you. Please note that if you leave your browser sit for an extended period of time, the classes in your cart will be returned to the system. If you find that a class you wanted is full, check back. You may find it open again after 10 or 15 minutes. Once you have selected your classes, you will be able to pay online and print a receipt which lists all the classes you registered for.

The system will have you create an account when you login or place an order. We suggest that you create this account ahead of the time that you want to register to avoid any delays. Your account keeps track of your purchases, phone number, address and email. It will allow you to update any of your personal information at any time. If you need to cancel classes, give Quilt Odyssey a call at 717-423-5148 and have the credit card that you used for the order handy, because we do not keep your credit card information on file in order to ensure that it can never be stolen from our system. If you would like more information, please feel free to read our privacy policy. Please be sure to read the directions thoroughly before canceling as there may be costs incurred. This will make the whole registration process more accurate and much easier for everyone!
