As a non-profit organization the Southern Highland Craft Guild is grateful for the work of volunteers in fulfilling its mission. Members of the community share their time and talent with the Guild in many ways including working in the main gallery at the Folk Art Center. Volunteers also play a vital role at the Craft Fairs held at the Asheville Civic Center each July and October. The Guild is now seeking volunteers to help out at the upcoming Craft Fair, July 16-19.
What to Expect
Some tasks volunteers can do at the fair include: taking tickets, handing out programs, working at the information desk and providing lunch relief for exhibitors. The jobs are divided into three hour shifts. Some benefits of volunteering at the Craft Fair include: parking reimbursement during the time you volunteer, a name badge which will get you into the Fair all four days, and two VIP passes to the show for friends or family.
If you would like to help out at the Craft Fair contact the Guild's volunteer coordinator, Jim Sugrue at the Folk Art Center, 298-7928 or you can email him at email@example.com.
