2011 Volunteer Opportunities

We are looking for volunteers for the 2011 Michigan Fiber Festival which will be held August 17-21, 2011.  Please contact the Michigan Fiber Festival Office if you are interested in being a volunteer for our great event.

Camping check-in:   
Volunteers are needed  Tuesday - Friday .    
Campers who have pre-registered will have completed paperwork that you will just need to hand them.  If someone has not pre-registered, you will need to collect their camping fee(s)  and stamp their camping pass for number of days camping.  Camping check-in is open from 9am to 8pm on these days so we have many volunteers  opportunities  in this area. 

Hospitality Area:   
Volunteers are needed  Wednesday - Sunday mornings.   
This involves getting the coffee and hot water started.  Volunteer(s) would need to be available each morning at 7:30am.

People Choice Awards/Hospitality Area:    
The People Choice Awards is a new event that will be held in Building 8 on Saturday and Sunday.  Building 8 will also be used this year as a hospitality area.  We will need volunteers to make sure there is coffee, water and to keep an eye on the Art Show and the People Choice Award entries.

Workshop Check-in:   
Volunteers  in this area are needed Wednesday - Saturday 8:00am to 9:00am and noon to 1:00pm.   
This involves asking workshop participants their name, locating their file and giving them direction to their first class.

Promotional Booth:   
Help working in our promotional booth.

This involves taking photos of workshops, animal shows, demos (dog herding, sheep and goat shearing) children's costume parade etc.

Wool Fleece Competition:   
Volunteers are needed on Friday night 5:30pm to 8pm to help with check-in and then on Saturday 8:00am to 3pm for the judging.

Skein Competition:   
Volunteers are needed on Saturday 8:30am to 3:00pm to help check-in of entries and to assist with the judging.

Art Chair:
Volunteers needed for several 2-hour shifts for the Art Show on Saturday and Sunday, 9 am to 5 pm each day. It’ll be in Building 8, and we are next to the Hospitality area.
You can bring your knitting-crochet-spinning-etc as long as you can do it and talk with people about the Art Show. (There’ll be LOTS of good art to talk about!)
