We are excited you are interested in volunteering at Vogue Knitting LIVE Pasadena, and we appreciate the time and effort of our volunteers who work so hard to ensure that Vogue Knitting LIVE runs smoothly. We look forward to working with you at the show.

Volunteering at Vogue Knitting LIVE is a tremendous way to meet other knitters, network with the Vogue Knitting LIVE staff, contribute to a successful event, and work with the very best knitting teachers across the country.

Vogue Knitting LIVE will take place at
Pasadena Convention Center
300 E Green St
Pasadena, CA

What We Need From Our Volunteers:

Volunteers will be needed Thursday, May 12, through Sunday, May 15, including some early morning and evening hours. There will be pre-event orientation on Wednesday, May 11, at 6 pm at the Pasadena Convention Center.

Volunteers will be scheduled for up to 9 hours of work over the course of the weekend. We will most likely schedule you in three-hour shifts. We ask that volunteers register for no more than two classes or lectures, due to the time commitment of the volunteer program.

Please list all times you would be available to work, as we cannot guarantee that we will be able to accommodate ALL requests. Interest in the Volunteer Program is high, so early sign-up is encouraged!

Many duties will require you to be on your feet for extended periods of time, and some may involve downtime, so we encourage you to wear comfortable shoes and bring along your own knitting projects to work on while not assisting guests.
