Quilt Show



To ensure our guild puts on a Great show again this year May 12, 13 & 14 (Mother’s Day weekend) we need you to check your schedule to see where you can lend a hand and work a shift (2 ½ to 3 hours), or more. You can sign up online or sign-up sheets will be available at the April and May meetings. The types of volunteer opportunities are listed below.

We are using a service called to manage online sign ups. When you click  the Sign Up button, you will be taken to our list of tasks and shifts on the website. You can choose your shifts. Make sure you click the Save button on the top  right of the list of shifts. Later, if you need to, you can go back to the site to change or cancel a shift . 

Sign Up

If you sign up for shifts at one of the monthly meetings, we will be adding your shifts to the SignUp website. This may take us a few days to complete. Please be patient.

Types of Volunteer Opportunities

White Glove Ambassadors

You stroll through the quilt display area, helping the visitors view the quilts, answer questions, hand out programs, chat with folks and generally be a smiling face from our Guild.


Selling entrance tickets, stamping hands, keeping track of attendance numbers and being your helpful selves.

Door Monitors

Monitoring exits, directing visitors, and stamping attendees’ hands at the entrance.


Replacing other volunteers temporarily if they need a break, filling vacant shifts if needed, setting up or taking down signs, etc.

Information Table

Providing information to visitors about the show and the guild, hand out programs, provide directions regarding the local facilities, address problems/questions as they arise, lost and found, Viewer’s Choice ballot box.

Set-Up (Thursday, May 11, 10am to 4pm)

This is all about hanging up the quilts. If you can hang a curtain, you can hang a quilt (even my husband can do this one). All help is appreciated; bring a ladder, buddy/partner/offspring. The more we have, the easier & faster the job goes.

Take-Down (Sunday 2:00pm to 4:30pm)

The quilts are taken down, bagged up and handed back to the quilters. There is a wide variety of tasks from climbing a ladder to sitting, so everyone can help. Once again, the more hands we have for this task the faster it goes.
