SAQA Benefit Auction Begins Monday at 2pm EST

On September 20th at 2:00 pm Eastern, the first group of 12 x 12 art quilts will go up for bid.
Since so many art quilts were donated by our generous members, SAQA will organize the auction in 3 stages:

  • The artwork on Pages 1a and 1b will begin their Auction on Sept. 20th,
  • Artwork on pages 2a and 2b will be auctioned starting on Sept. 27th
  • and artwork on pages 3a and 3b will begin on October 4th.
The opening bid price is $750. Prices will decline over the days, but don't wait too long to bid on your favourite - the longer you wait, the greater chance someone else will grab it!
You do NOT have to be a SAQA member to bid on these beautiful quilts!
Check out our running slideshow (top right of this page), previewing over 280 fine art quilts. Anyone and everyone may view the auction quilts on SAQA's public website and place a bid. Take a look, pick your favourites and make a note of what day they will open for bidding.
You can read more here about how the Auction works.
We hope that you'll join in the fun bidding on great art quilts for your collection and support SAQA's exhibitions, publications, and outreach programs.
Thank you
