You can help the Virginia Quilt Museum by being part of the "Little Quilts, Big Talents 2013” Silent Auction. We hope that you will choose to help us by donating a small quilt to our fundraiser or by bidding on a gorgeous little quilt by an accomplished quilter. The in-house silent auction will begin in March and the online sessions will run from May through December 2013.
We plan to widely publicize this special auction to a large audience through the use of multiple databases, a network of social media, and the resources of a professional online bidding company (BenefitBidding.com). Your participation will help to ensure this a successful source of revenue for the Official Quilt Museum of the Commonwealth of Virginia. Last year’s silent auctions were a resounding success and raised over $5,000 for the Museum. This year, we hope to do even better!
If you would like to donate a little quilt for the benefit auction, please mail the Museum the completed Letter of Intent. Thank you for your support!
