Online Quilt Auction Plans

Our first Benefit Bidding Auction was so successful, that the Board of Arizona Quilters Hall of Fame has now scheduled a second auction. So mark your calendars for these dates.

Calling all charitable minded quilters who would like to make a small quilt that the AQHOF could use in this auction. We want quilts no larger than 120 inches on the perimeter (which would be 30" wide by 30" long or some such configuration). Any theme, any color, any technique will do. Create something that you believe the rest of the world would want in their private collection of quilts! Go to our website to download an entry form and submit your mini-masterpiece by September 1, 2014.


If you are interested in donating a quilt for the auction please download our Commitment form and send it in.

Mark your calendars for October 21 through October 31, 2014 (our scheduled auction time frame). To make a bid on our quilts during this time period, go online to www.benefitbidding.com and register, then bid. Very simple! All money will be used by the Arizona Quilters Hall of Fame to continue our non-profit work in recognizing the contributions of Arizonans, and our Quilt Shops to quilt making in our great state.

 

ARIZONA QUILTERS IN THE NEWS

 

AQG Hall of Fame Winner- Catherine Vaught, March 2014 Arizona Quilters Guild Quilt Show

The best part about working the Arizona Quilters Hall of Fame Booth at quilt shows is the wonderful people that we get to meet. While working at the booth on March 29th at the Arizona Quilters Guild Quilt Show, this delightful lady also named “Cathy” stopped in to say hello. Very quickly I learned that she was this year’s recipient of the Hall of Fame Award and I asked if I might take her picture with her award winning quilt. She also told me a little bit about her two year odyssey in making “Remembering William Morris”. Both the quilt and Cathy are winners in my view and I hope that you get a chance to see both in person at our September Induction Event.
