For general information about IQM or IQF, please contact Quilts, Inc. through www.quilts.com or call (713) 781-6864.

Welcome AAUW and Bunny Buddies "Quilt Show" Volunteers,

The 2006 International Quilt Market (IQM) and International Quilt Festival (IQF) will run Saturday, October 28, through Sunday, November 5, at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, Texas. "Preview Night" is Wednesday, November 1. IQM is for vendors only. IQF is open to the public.

Shifts are available before, during, and after both events. Workers receive parking reimbursement, free admission to that day's show (a $10 value), and $6 per hour for themselves or their designated non-profit ("AAUW-WHC" or "BB"). People working an evening shift can ask Security to walk them to their cars.

This year, workers can sign up directly with Terri Winsauer, IQM/IQF Staff Coordinator, through www.quilts.com/worktheshows/Houston/. Terri's email address for this event is worktheshow@quilts.com. (Please note that Terri is moving at the end of September and may be away from her email during that time.)


2006 Quilt Show Job Descriptions & Pay Rates

The following positions earn $6 per hour. Additional job descriptions are available at www.quilts.com/worktheshows/Houston/.

Hangers hang quilts and set up displays. This position is very physical. You need to be able to climb ladders and work a minimum of six hours.

During some shifts you will be screening entrants for the correct badges. During others will simply be taking tickets. Some shifts are busier than others. You need to be fast and friendly.

Guardians are on their feet for four hours or more, protecting special exhibits from the adoring public. You can have fun here by telling the visitors what makes the exhibit special.

Help take down quilts and displays. This position is also very physical. You need to be able to work a minimum of four hours (or until take-down is done).
