Festival in Long Beach 7/23-26

International Quilt Festival in Long Beach, CA
Thank you for volunteering your time in the SAQA booth! - Please plan to arrive early to allow yourself to find a parking space if you are driving here. In the lobby - find the Volunteer Check-In Kiosk to get your name tag. You will need your Driver's License for this. Review the map and parking info in purple below. $10 to park.

Most of the shifts overlap, and it will be up to each shift of volunteers to train the incoming group. We will need 2 money people - 1) credit card purchases; 2) cash and checks. All instructions will be at the table. If Jamie can do this, so can you. There will be a sign in sheet at the booth for you to indicate that you have worked your shift.

If you are working the opening shifts at Preview or on the mornings of Fri/Sat/Sun, please arrive on time. The doors to the Convention Center open at 8:00am, so if you want to get your name tag early, you can. You will need to show the guard your name tag to get down to the exhibit floor before the show opens to the public. Please go straight to the exhibit, and avoid the vendor area when the show is not open. Questions? Please e-mail Jamie at

Art Quilt Reception; 5:30-7 pm; Seaview Ballroom; Hyatt Regency Long Beach Hotel
One of the fun parts of the reception is getting to know new quilt friends and to see what they are working on. "Show and Tell" is an important part of the reception, so if you would like to bring something to show, please do so. For example, people may bring work in progress, newly finished projects, opportunity quilts, winners from recent shows, etc. We do ask that you keep the "Show and Tell" non-commercial. This is an "invitation only" event, and all members of SAQA have received an invitation. Please RSVP to the person on the e-mail, not Connie or Jamie. In other words, you can't just show up. YOUR NAME NEEDS TO BE ON THE LIST to ATTEND
