Quilt Market is Nov. 3rd-5th & Festival is Nov. 8th-11th, 2018
with Preview Night on Nov. 7th

International Quilt Festival is one of Houston's largest annual conventions and is preceded by the International Quilt Market. We are very pleased that you would like to work with us this year. We are always looking for good workers, and in return, you will be part of a special group of people who are proud of their contributions and are glad to see each other year after year.

The International Quilt Market is a trade show, not open to the public or to children. This is a place for quilt shop owners to purchase inventory for their stores. It is open on the first Saturday, Sunday and Monday on your schedule. If you are working during Market, you will not be eligible to shop the vendors after your shift, but you will be able to see the special exhibits. After our change-over on (Tuesday November 6th, and during the day on Wednesday) days, Festival begins, and the crowds come. If you have never seen it, you are in for a wonderful treat. This event is half art show and half shopping spree, and that is only the ground floor. There are also bus tours, classes, special exhibits, award ceremonies, and other activities going on throughout the week and into the weekend.

To run a show of this size, we rely on people like you. We need people to help hang the quilts before Market, guards for the quilts during Market and Festival, doorpersons to take tickets, and help with takedown after the show is closed. We pay $7.25 an hour; parking reimbursement (up to $18 - this is the cost to park per day at Discovery Green parking lot); and you receive free entry to the show for each day you work (a $15 value for Festival). This could also be a great fundraiser for your organization. If you work for your group, you would still receive parking and free entry into the show. Your organization would receive the money that you earn.

Your next step is to go to the Job Description page and see the different positions available. After you have read it, please go to the shifts available page and choose the shift/shifts you are interested in working.
