Calling Quilt Show Volunteers

Entries for the Sydney Quilt Show 2008 close TOMORROW, 29 FEBRUARY. If your forms are still sitting on your sewing table (or you need to download the entry form), complete them and stuff them into an Express Post envelope and into the mail box NOW. A don't forget to include your volunteer form (download).

Even if you are not an entrant this year, we encourage all Guild members to volunteer for a roster shift or two. The quilt show is a significant undertaking and a strong pool of volunteers will ensure that the team is fresh and enthusiastic to carry out the following important tasks:

  • set up (Tuesday 10 June) especially in the morning;
  • floor monitoring/white glove duties;
  • catalogue sales;
  • membership renewals and inquiries;
  • raffle ticket sales;
  • demonstrating quilting skills;
  • treasurer assistance; and
  • take down (5.00-7.30pm Sunday, 15 June).
For set up and take down, we are also looking for some strong young men (under 60 years is good!) to supplement the "Old Faithful" team of husbands that turn up every year.
