Quilt Angels Needed

If you are interested in helping us show off our wonderful quilts, you may volunteer to be a quilt angel. You will gently handle the quilts as a "white glove" guardian, protecting the quilts from being touched by eager fingers and showing them to visitors who want to see the back or check out the details.

Working as a volunteer earns you a volunteer thank you gift. You need no special qualifications; you just need to be a quilt lover! To volunteer, check the Quilt Angel space on your Event Enrollment Form, call (877) 768-1945 or click here to sign up. We must receive your form by May 1, 2014 in order to be eligible. The Shipshewana Quilt Festival will contact you if you are selected.
