Festival in Long Beach 2011


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/cash and checks 2) receipt writer. All instructions will be at the table. There will be a sign in sheet at the booth for you to indicate that you have worked your shift.  We will be selling books and memberships, and hopefully some art quilts in the two exhibitions.

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.
