The Studio Art Quilt Association (SAQA) begins their annual fundraiser today! This is a great opportunity to purchase some great art work and help a really wonderful organization at the same time.
How the Auction Works
There are 288 Benefit Auction quilts donated by our members. The SAQA 2010 Benefit Auction will begin on Monday, September 20th at 2:00 Eastern Time and conclude on Saturday, October 9 at 2:00 Eastern.
Last year’s Benefit Auction raised $47,325. The funds raised through the Auction are critical to supporting SAQA’s exhibitions, catalogs and outreach programs.
How the Auction works:
The Auction is run in three sections (Section 1 – Pages 1a and 1b; Section 2 – Pages 2a and 2b; Section 3 – Pages 3a and 3b).
On the first day of each section’s auction, the price for all pieces in that section is $750. The next day (at 2:00 Eastern), the price drops to $550. The third day, it drops to $350, then $250, then $150, and finally $75.
The first section will begin September 20th at 2:00 Eastern.
The second section will begin September 27th at 2:00 Eastern.
The third section will begin October 4th at 2:00 Eastern.
On another note, I’ve been vat dyeing again. This one below was made from a Procion dye that I got from Dharma Trading Company called Mild Wing Sauce. It was an oops dye they were selling at a great price. It was screened with golden yellow and scarlet vat dyes.
this one was created from another oops! Dharma dye called How Now Brown Cow. I LOVE this color. It was screened with scarlet vat dye as well.
