Hands down, the highlight of my QuiltCon experience were the two days I spent volunteering to help set up the show. I worked from 8am through 4pm on Tuesday and Wednesday, and it was a fantastic experience. I don’t have any photos of my time working as a volunteer, but here are a few photographs of other stellar volunteers and staff working to get registration open on Wednesday evening.
I had the honor of working in a small group to hang the special exhibit quilts of Molly Upton. I also did about 200 squats on Wednesday morning to get the paper cut and taped to the tables in all of the workshop rooms. My quads are still a bit sore, but thankfully I had yoga each morning to help get me out of bed and flexible enough to walk again.
This was my first experience volunteering at QuiltCon, and it will probably not be the last. In fact, I am wondering if I can’t just volunteer my way through the entire show next year. 🙂
