The City of Paducah named April 10 the official Yo Yo Club Day last year. This official day honors the Yo Yo Club group who spent more than 20 years demonstrating hand quilting at the museum. To give back to the museum, the Yo Yo Club raffled their quilts and gave the proceeds to the National Quilt Museum.
Volunteers and supporters like the Yo Yo Club fill important roles in several museum departments. We rely heavily on our volunteers to achieve our goals. Volunteers contribute to the museum by interacting with museum visitors as docents in the gallery, helping the Education Department with youth programming, and helping the Curatorial Department with exhibit changes.
