1000 ARTISAN TEXTILES and SAQA AUCTION

Yesterday, I was notified that 3 of my pieces have been selected for inclusion in the new book, 1000 Artisan Textiles, due to be published May, 2010.  I don’t know which pieces yet, but will post when I find out.  Meanwhile, watch the 1000 Artisan Textiles website or amazon.com for updates and pre-sales.

REMINDER:  SAQA AUCTION to begin Thursday, Sept 10, 2pm Eastern time.  SAQA is a wonderful art quilt network that promotes fiber art through education, exhibits, website and various publications.  SAQA represents some of the best artists in the field, and  I am honored to be a member of this group.   There are 234 Benefit Auction quilts donated by our members. Last year’s Benefit Auction raised $41,775. 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 10th at 2:00 Eastern.
The second section will begin September 17th at 2:00 Eastern.
The third section will begin September 24th at 2:00 Eastern.

You bid by filling out the online bid form. You can bid on up to 7 pieces at a time. First bid on each piece wins. We will then ship the artwork to the winning bidder by insured USPS Priority Mail.

Pieces go fast, so if you have your heart set on something, bid quickly!   This is a great chance to pick up pieces from your favorite artists that you might not otherwise be able to afford. 

I’m leaving for Italy now, so expect many inspirational and peaceful photos at the end of the month.
