One important feature of Quiltfest has always been the teams of friendly and helpful stewards at each venue. Their role is to welcome visitors, to answer questions, to keep a watchful eye on whatever is going on in their space, intervening tactfully when necessary and also to 'demonstrate' something of some favourite technique - which need not be P&Q related. This in fact means that the majority bring along a piece of their own current work to keep them happily occupied if visitors are few in number - but which makes a talking point for visitors who may know very little about modern textiles and are delighted to be able to learn something in an informal setting. If you would be able to help with stewarding (half-a-day minimum), please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your offers and I will try to fit you in on the data-bases. Please check the website before replying and state which venue as well as which date! Why not fill up a car and make a good day out with time to visit the other venues as well as doing a stint stewarding?
