Quilt hanging and staging: Work with us several days prior to the show as well as show day as we stage and hang quilts for display in historic homes and around town.
Quilt Docents in Historic Homes: Take a shift in one of the homes on the historic homes tour monitoring the quilts for safety, showing visitors the quilts, answering basic questions and sharing information about the quilts using the exhibition label provided on the quilt. You will also direct visitors to the Viewer's Choice ballot boxes.
