Festival of Quilts 2015 in Birmingham - Call for volunteers.

It’s that time of the year again when we are asking for people to volunteer some of their time to steward the SAQA exhibition, (Food for Thought), at Festival of Quilts in Birmingham

The dates for the Festival are from Thursday 6th August to Sunday 9th August

If you are able to give some of your time then please email Sandy Snowden at to let her know which day you would be willing to help out. Sessions are normally for 90 minutes, starting from 10 am each day and going on until 5.30 pm each day, except Sunday, when the show closes at 5 pm. 

This is a great opportunity to meet members of the public, other SAQA members and potential SAQA members. If you are at all concerned that English is not your first language then please let Sandy know and we will make sure that there is an English speaking volunteer on duty with you. Having volunteers who speak different languages is a real benefit as the Festival is truly international.  So we need your native language just as much as English!

Volunteers will get a free pass for the day - so if you sign up for two days, you will get two day passes etc. Well worth considering!

If you write to Sandy, please allow a few days for her reply as she is traveling on family matters right now, but she will get back to you. Thank you.

  1. Thanks Uta!
    If you are coming to Festival of Quilts and can help, please send me an email.
    If you have already emailed me and did not get a reply, please try again.
    At the moment, Thursday and Saturday have several slots where there are no volunteers yet. and Sunday only has one place.
    Right now am concentrating on getting someone on each position. However, I plan to arrange for 2 people per slot. If you can do more than one, that would be wonderful!
    Also, the free pass will cover all of the days for the show.
