We appreciate the effort that has gone into your quilt but we must advise you that UK Customs will apply UK Import Duty & VAT (Value added Tax) when the entry is imported.

Please note that the lower the value of the quilt, the lower the Duty & VAT.

When arranging your courier, there will be a section on the couriers’ documentation regarding import duties. You need to tick the box that reads ‘Bill Import Duties to Sender’ as Bill Bowden Event Logistics will not accept these on your behalf and we will have to refuse receipt of your entry.


VERY IMPORTANT Please do not dispatch your quilt unless it is labelled using the entry labels provided.  You should contact the organiser if you have not received these.
