We are nearly ready for our show and it’s time to sign up to assist
with the AQS Show scheduled for fall of this year!
Dates, times and location are : October 3–6, 2018 • Wed.–Fri., 9am–6pm, Sat., 9am–4pm Virginia Beach Convention Center • 1000 19th St, Virginia Beach, VA 23451
We recently received the list of volunteers required by AQS and we will need all of your help. The racks will be assembled and broken down by AQS personnel but they need us to handle the quilts to ensure they will be taken care of properly.
The list of lectures and classes are open and are on their website. http://www.quiltweek.com/locations/virginia-beach Please visit the site and check it out. Some of the classes are already filling up. They do not require helpers for the classes but each lecture requires 3-4 volunteers to take the tickets, hold up quilts, etc.
Our Guild directly benefits from supporting this show. We will have space for our raffle quilt, a small silent auction and a check station for people to hold their bags, coats, etc. We will be keeping all funds from these stations. In addition, the guild will receive $1,000 and each volunteer will get free admission for the day they volunteer. So please consider a 2-3 hour volunteer's stint each day to get you in to the see show all 4 days with no admission cost.
We only have two more months of meetings and the quilt show to sign up for the jobs. So sign up soon. Betts Werbiskis and Ann Walls will be there to get you involved. If you cannot attend the meetings, please contact one of them to sign up.
Thanks in advance to all our dedicated volunteers!
