Thank you for your interest in volunteering for the upcoming Quilt Show. The Quilt Show Committee differs from other Guild Committees in that it runs from October to October, has its own separate budget, Chair, Vice-Chair and Treasurer and Policies and Procedures. The Committee meets on the 4th Thursday of every month at the Church of Christ from 7:00-9:00 pm. The Committee does not meet in June, November and December, but things are happening all year round.

The Quilt Show Committee is quite large and many of the committee members also volunteer on other sub-committees to help form the next show. Everyone is welcome to join in and give their opinions or just sit and learn. This group of volunteers is dedicated and committed to put on a good show every year. New volunteers are especially welcome as new and fresh ideas are always appreciated.

The following is a list of current open Committee Positions, however if you have an interest in volunteering for any of the Quilt Show committees, do not hesitate to express your interest. More than one person can be on a committee:
