White Glove Volunteers for Opportunity Quilt

This summer, at the International Quilt Festival in Long Beach from August 4-6th, we will be showing our Opportunity Quilt. As a Guild, we are required to provide twenty hours of White Glove Service. You may be wondering, what exactly is white glove service? As a White Glove Service member (yes, you do actually wear white gloves!) you will have access to all of the quilts on display. While wearing white gloves, you are able to handle the quilts and provide guests with a closer look. This opportunity also allows for networking with several of the quilt makers at the festival. Our Guild has been assigned 10 blocks of 2- hour service:

Thursday Aug. 4th

  • Block 1: 9:30- 11:30a
  • Block 2: 3:30-5:30p

Friday Aug. 5th

  • Block 3: 9:30-11:30a
  • Block 4: 11:30-1:30p
  • Block 5: 1:30-3:30p
  • Block 6: 3:30-5:30p

Saturday Aug 5th

  • Block 7: 9:30-11:30a
  • Block 8: 11:30-1:30p
  • Block 9: 1:30-3:30p
  • Block 10: 3:30-5:30p

These are single blocks of service and unfortunately there is no flexibility to the hours. In exchange you will be given free admission to the show. You will be on your feet for the 2 hours, but it goes fast!

There is an additional need for assistance selling tickets on Saturday, Aug. 5th at 9:30a, 11:30a, 1:30p, and 3:30p. Ticket sellers will also receive free entry to the show.

This is a sitting position. In terms of transportation, there is bus trip being organized for that Saturday.

To sign up, please contact Robin Sutherland either in person or by Cell: (858) 848-4680 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. at your earliest convenience with your first and second preference of blocks.

Looking forward to attending this fun event with you all. Thanks so much!
