Please mark your calendars for the weekend of April 23 – 25. This will be the first annual ACQ Spring Online Auction.
Last year (2020) brought many challenges, and one of the things we were unable to pivot was our raffle quilt program. Seasoned members and friends may be aware that the majority of our income to fund programs and projects comes from the raffle quilt sales. Without having live, in person opportunities to market our quilt, we were unable to raise the normal amount of funds to help with our budget.
This year we are trying something a little bit different – an online auction of quilts and handmade items from our ACQ members. That being said, the only way we can make this fundraiser work is if we have awesome sponsors or members willing to donate items. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor or donating an item, please follow this link, Spring Auction Entry, and fill out the form, and of our auction ladies will get in contact with you. We are happy to acknowledge all of our donors throughout the auction.
Donated items will be juried, meaning that only the highest quality products that demonstrate the talent of our guild will be auctioned. We would like a minimum of 20 items for the Spring auction. Photos and descriptions of items will be posted in advance, and online bidding will begin at noon on Friday, April 23rd. The auction will close on Sunday, April 25th and the highest bidders will be notified following the close of the auction.
Don’t have something quite ready for the Spring auction? Don’t worry - we are also planning on a Fall/Holiday Online auction around September/October to provide another opportunity to the public to purchase hand-made gifts.
