There are many opportunities with many different shifts. Sign up early for the times and jobs that will work best for you! Remember that you get in to the quilt show free the day you volunteer. You must be a member of the DMAQG to volunteer. One exception, husbands are encouraged to sign-up to help hang and take down quilts.
Please consider signing up for a Quilt Hostess Position. It’s a great way to see the quilts in the show. You will get to move around and not be in the same area.

Special Exhibit at the Quilt Show
Our treasured quilt exhibit will reflect quilting trends over the past 30 years. The family legacy exhibit will feature 90 quilts from 17 of our members who have several generations of quilters ( past and present) in their family. At last count you have made over 150 preemie quilts that will displayed. After the show these quilts will be donated to local neonatal intensive care units (NICU’s). These special exhibits are in addition to over 400 entered quilts, our show quilt, around 100 little quilts for our silent auction, and our community service display. We will have an awesome display of our quilting talent!

Quilt Entry Pick-Up Information
Quilters must pick up their quilts Saturday, October 5 at 5 p.m. in the Guild Show display area. There will be a waiting area in the hall outside the display area. When you arrive, you will be given a number and sent in by number to pick up your quilts. If you entered a quilt in the show and you are not able to go to the 5 p.m. pick up time, you must make arrangements for someone else to pick up your quilts. Give that person a list of your quilts and a signed permission slip to allow them to pick up for you.
