Volunteering at the Show
In order to staff our wonderful show, we need your help! To select your two shifts, visit the VQ volunteer sign-up.
If you do not wish to use the online system, you will still be able to sign up in person at the meetings. Please note that people using the online system will have first choice of shifts.
Remember, each guild member is asked to work TWO shifts during the show. Boutiquers are expected to volunteer for one boutique shift in addition to their regular TWO shifts.

On the Day of the Show
Check in for your shift at the admissions desk.
Floor marking: Wednesday morning, marking the floor for placement of the quilt racks.
Admissions: Greet guests and take the entry fee. Each paying guest is given a wristband which helps us know how many attendees we have. Also, offer each guest a ballot to vote for his or her favorite quilts. You will be handling money. Calculators will be provided. This is a seated job.
Raffle Quilts: Sell tickets for our raffle quilt. You will be handling money. This is a seated job.
White Gloves: You are the protectors of the quilts. Roam the quilts on display and engage guests in conversation about the quilts. Answer questions, draw viewers attention to details in the quilts, and generally guard the quilts from sticky fingers. Wearing white gloves allows you to touch the quilts and turn the corners to show the backs. You will be on your feet and moving around.
Boutique: Sell boutique items. You will be handling money. Calculators will be provided. You will be on your feet and moving within the boutique.
Silent Auction: Monitor the silent auction table and quilts and hanging of quilts that day. Mostly sitting.
Hospitality: Monitor the hospitality room. Put out refreshments and keep the area tidy.
Vendor baskets: Sell tickets for the raffle of the vendor basket of goodies. This is a seated job
