Volunteering for Community Service Project Assistant at The Great Wisconsin Quilt Show

September 09 - September 12, 2020 | Virtual Experience

In response to COVID-19, The Great Wisconsin Quilt Show team has made the difficult decision to transition the event into an immersive online experience. The safety of our attendees, vendors, presenters and volunteers is paramount. So, while this decision was difficult, we know it is the right choice. Thank you for your continued support and patience during this time. We will share more details as plans develop and look forward to connecting with you virtually this September!

The Great Wisconsin Quilt Show is an educational and community fundraising event presented by PBS Wisconsin and Nancy Zieman Productions. Attendees can connect with their creative muse by participating in sewing workshops, lectures and stage presentations. See an artist's creativity turned into a beautiful quilt by walking through our juried quilt exhibit. And don't forget to bring your walking shoes as guests can shop their way through a 85,000-square-foot vendor mall!
