Thank you so much for your interest in volunteering at the Virginia Quilt Museum! As a small museum, we could not keep our doors open or our programs running without our wonderful volunteers!

Each day, our volunteers perform meaningful, essential tasks and proudly represent the Virginia Quilt Museum to the public. Our volunteers truly are our best ambassadors and our best advertising.



We always need help in these areas, we bet at least one is a good fit for you!
