How can I become a volunteer?
As you know, all events need lots of volunteers in order to operate smoothly. AMQ Festival is no exception. Anyone may now sign up to volunteer. If YOU would like to be a volunteer, please let us know as soon as possible so that you may have first choice of jobs.
There are many opportunities to volunteer including:

Packing and shipping of quilts at take down
AMQF has an exciting way for you to volunteer this year. Our teachers need your help to greet the students, check off names, hand out and collect evaluation forms and class handouts and help when needs arise. These treasured helpers are our Teacher's Angels. As a thank you, our Teacher's Angels names are also entered into a volunteer prize draw each day and we have some amazing prizes donated for this purpose. The procedure for being a teacher's angel is as follows: when you are registering and paying online for your classes, tick the appropriate box to inform us that you are interested in volunteering. Our volunteer co-ordinator will draw the lucky angel for each class when it is full or 2 weeks prior to Festival and you will be notified via email. Teachers will make recommendations to the volunteer coordinator for those Angels that contribute extra effort and these will be recognised, notifiied by email, and their names will be announced in our blog and newsletter. Please consider volunteering as a Teacher's Angel, it's a great way to get to know our teachers and meet like minded students as well.
For every 2 hours you volunteer, you are eligible to enter your name into the exclusive, volunteer only, door prize drawings. We do several drawings throughout the day, and then all the names go back into the "pot" for the GRAND PRIZE, given away at the end of the show. You do not need to be present to win. Some lucky winner will walk away with a basket of goodies!
