Volunteer Opportunities

How can YOU help make Minnesota Quilters happen?

Minnesota Quilters is a volunteer organization. We need you!

We have many volunteer tasks that range from a couple hours of simple (but needed) tasks to multi-year commitments.

  • We always have hundreds of volunteer slots for our annual show - both before, during and after the show.
  • We have many ways you can help with our Quilting For Others program – sewing tops or quilting them or binding them, even ironing! We provide all the materials.
  • Hybrid (in-person and Zoom at the same time) meeting help – from making coffee, holding & folding, photographing, to greeting attendees, to running technical equipment (training provided)
  • Zoom meetings – simple Zoom hosting
  • Simple pop-up jobs for the Board or office staff or activities/programs we sponsor
  • Various committee activities
  • Minnesota Quilters Board positions
  • The list goes on!

MQ Outstanding Volunteer

Each year we look for your help in identifying those volunteers that go above and beyond for our organization. They may be the person who you see jumping in to help at member meetings and the show, or they may be the busy bee that works quietly behind the scenes on projects that help keep the organization humming along. Yearly, at the April membership meeting we present the Outstanding Volunteer Award. Please fill out the Outstanding Volunteer Nomination Form to tell us about the person you feel best exemplifies the spirit of volunteerism at Minnesota Quilters, Inc.
