White Glove Volunteers Needed:

Due to the incredible amount of work necessary to realize a quality quilt show, volunteers are greatly appreciated to assist with set up and removal of the quilts. In addition, because viewers are not permitted to touch the quilts, white gloved ambassadors are also needed during the event to assist with viewing and to answer questions regarding individual quilts. If you would like to be a volunteer, please contact Associate Director Blaire Gagon at blaire@southcountymuseum.org; 401-783-5400.
