Classroom instructors are assigned to one of the four weekly classes at Coffee Creek on a full-time or relief schedule. You must have at least advanced-beginner quilting skills, and a willingness to work with a wide variety of student learning styles. Prior teaching experience is not required, but patience, good listening skills, and compassion are essential. Two evening and two daytime classes are held during the week. Instructors must be able to make a long-term commitment. The instructors meet monthly to talk about common issues that come up in teaching classes to this special population of quilters.
Long-arm quilters are needed to quilt our students’ third quilts. These are typically 60 x 80 in size. We provide the batting, deliver and pick up the quilts, and pay for the cost of thread.
Fabric sorters work with the fabric committee to sort and wash fabric donations. Sometimes they work on their own, and sometimes in groups, depending on the amount of work to be done.
Quilt kit makers choose fabrics and trim for the students’ first and second quilts.
Public relations volunteers work with the public relations committee to develop and carry out fundraising activities, initiate and respond to requests for public presentations (for quilt guilds and other community organizations) and help staff CCQ events.
If you are interested in any of these opportunities, contact Coffee Creek Quilters and our volunteer coordinator will be in touch with you to discuss the possibilities.
