International Quilt Museum collections care volunteers get the rare opportunity to see new acquisitions and famous quilts, as well as an inside view of the vast diversity of quiltmaking throughout history and around the world.


IQM collections volunteers work directly with the collection, refolding quilts, vacuuming quilts and objects, and completing other related work essential to the IQM’s mission of preserving our international collection.


The collections care teams generally work for 2-3 hours in the morning or afternoon, and volunteers may be asked to complete tasks that involve repeated reaching and lifting movements while standing or walking.  Special collections care training will be provided for each task.
