Volunteers

To make this show a success, many volunteers will be needed, as the information below indicates. The more volunteers, the lighter the workload for all involved. Volunteering offers guild members a chance to not only share their skills but also to learn new ones and meet members of our sister guilds. The following is a list of the available committees and a brief description of the tasks. Please feel free to e-mail any questions you may have.

Use the Volunteer Form to sign up for an assigned time and task.

Thank you to all who volunteer. You will make this show a success. Volunteer forms will be available soon; in the meantime, any questions can be answered by your quilt guild show representative.
