At each venue that the Quilt of Belonging visits we ask for volunteers to assist with the installation and dismantling. A well planned out job requires a considerable amount of preparation and lots of patience and cooperation. During that time helpers receive a first hand, up close glimpse at the Quilt as they don white gloves and hold the precious tapestry in their own two hands. (P) Helpers always thank us for the experience but it is we that should thank them. It is always a pleasure to forge new friendships and to hear your reactions and your questions. Your enthusiasm makes opening up the boxes a special event every time. Thank you for all your help. We will always remember you.
