Yes, the SAQA Benefit Auction starts THIS Friday, and we are looking forward to seeing you there! We hope you’ve taken the opportunity to review all the wonderful donations we have received from our artists - 443 pieces in all!

At just 12" square, these pieces are perfect for collecting and displaying. Plus, all proceeds from the Benefit Auction help increase the recognition for art quilts and the artists who make them while supporting SAQA’s exhibitions, publications, and education outreach.

The auction will kick off at 2pm EDT (GMT - 4) on September 13 with Diamond Day bidding - an early bird opportunity to purchase ANY quilt for $1000.

Starting Monday at 2:00pm EDT, only Section 1 quilts will be available for bidding, starting at $750 and further reduced throughout the week to a final price of $100. Click the link below to find out all you need to know about bidding.
