5. Volunteers! Have you decided what you are going to do?

Some thoughts:

a. Hand work demos – what do you do for hand work? Demonstrate at the “Quilters at Work” table, center aisle of the Auditorium for 2 hours. 2 chairs and a table. Hand quilting hoop stand available also.

b. Be a White Glover.

c. Assist at the Silent Auction table taking bids or later in the day selecting the winners and taking payment.

d. Show Take Down. While you are waiting to pick up your quilt we need help collecting and loading the truck for the storage unit and unloading at the storage unit. Last year we were done around 7:00 p.m.

e. Workshop Registration Table assisting with registration pickup, especially Thursday night.

Attached to this form is a Silent Auction Donation form – basic information for the Chairperson to know who donated what. Please include with your item.
