Raffle Quilt at Mancuso World Quilt Show

Posted on

The literature that came from the August Mancuso World Quilt Show- New England XII reads as follows
“The World Quilt Show will provide your guild with space to display your raffle quilt for all four days in exchange for 32 hours of white glove volunteer service. Volunteers have the option of filling 8 four hour shifts or 16 two hour shifts..

Please note all volunteers must pay the pre registration fee or general admission so that they have proper identification. We ask all volunteers to supply their own white gloves. Please note that the guild’s quilt must be displayed all four days of the show.”

On the pre registration form it states that Volunteers will be given a complimentary half-day work shop or two complimentary lectures for each four hour shift. they commit to. or a complimentary full-day workshop for two shifts.

I have discussed this with a dozen MVQ members and I seriously doubt that we can field a team of enough people to sit at the raffle table for 4 days AND fill 32 hours of volunteer service. I am not going to apply for a space at the August 14-17 Quilt show. If you volunteered to work on the raffle table, you can take it off your calendar.
