Sign ups for volunteer positions are open on Sign Up Genius. The link is above. If you volunteer, you will have free admission for the day and free package check for the day. Then you don’t have to carry around all your purchases, class supplies, heavy purse, etc. If you choose to volunteer to hang or take down quilts, then you may choose one show day for free admission/package check.There are multiple positions, including a couple evenings and Saturday shifts available for those who work during the weekdays. We often have difficulty filling the Friday and Saturday shifts, so any help you can offer is appreciated.
Exhibit Hostess – A great way to see the quilts and save your non-working time for the vendor booths. You get to wander around in the quilt display area to remind people not to touch the quilts and not to go behind the ropes.
Raffle Ticket Sales – Good for people people and those who need to be able to sit down.
Package Check – I love this one because you get to see all the cool bags people make. You also can often see what they are buying, and ask them about it. They are usually happy to share info on it. You must be able to bend and lift heavy things, and to make change.
Volunteer Check In – Sign people in, give them their wrist bands and directions, and manage the package check for the daily volunteers.
Charity Booth – A place where people can stop and sew a little if they need a break. They often introduce interested non-quilters (like their kids or friends) to a part of the process. We make small quilts for Santa Claus Girls. You can sit for parts of the shift if needed.
Hang Up or Take Down – People love this because you get to see the quilts up close.
Lectures – You check admission tickets for the audience, then help the teacher however they need. This could include hanging displays, passing out handouts, holding up quilts, setting out their vending table, or other tasks. These also fill up fast because you get to sit through the lecture without paying for it.
