If you would like to help make the show a success, please join us for a shift or two serving as a volunteer.  Most of the shifts lasts two to three hours, and you can select a time that works around lectures you would like to attend.  Here are some of the positions available:

  • Quilt Intake Team: Collect quilts and coordinate delivery of quilts to the Mesa Convention Center on the Sunday before the show.
  • Hanging: Assist with displaying show items in an assigned area.
  • Volunteer Check-In: Monitor the Volunteer Room; assist other volunteers to find their assignments.
  • Floaters: Assist wherever necessary.
  • Judging: Assist by presenting quilts for judging, scribing for judges, and preparing items for hanging.  (This position may not be available every year.)
  • Photography: Assist by hanging quilts for photographer, or moving quilts in and out of the room. (This position may not be available every year.)
  • Admissions: Receive money; distribute tickets and programs to visitors.
  • Sales: Sell AQG opportunity quilt tickets, AQG promotional items, show bags, and show pins.
  • White Glove: Monitor exhibit rooms, answer questions, display quilt backs when requested.
  • Security: Assist with traffic flow, collect tickets, stamp hands, direct patrons, keep food/drink away from exhibits, and monitor doors.
  • Take Down: Assist with retrieving, bagging, and returning show items from your assigned areas; collect various hanging hardware.

Helping at the quilt show is more than just fun! One of the benefits that people get from volunteering is the satisfaction of incorporating service into their lives and making a difference in their community.  Research has also established a strong relationship between volunteering and health: those who volunteer have lower mortality rates, greater functional ability, and lower rates of depression later in life than those who do not volunteer.

As thanks for your time, we'll provide you with a volunteer show pin and FREE ADMISSION.  Plus, every shift you work gives you a chance to win Shift Prizes and another ticket for the Grand Prize Drawing. 

The Volunteer Grand Prize:
a Janome DC1050 sewing machine
