Bidding is now over - thank you to all our buyers and artists!

Over $9,000 was raised to support SAQA programming and outreach

Michele Hardman loved art quilts and was an avid supporter of SAQA. She was especially fond of SAQA's annual Benefit Auction. The pieces that drew her eye appealed for a variety of reasons: she knew the artist or was moved by the art; she was inspired by the message and/or title; she needed the perfect gift for a friend or family member.

Over the years, she moved frequently and decorated all her homes with Benefit Auction pieces. It was Michele's wish that the pieces which she had enjoyed so much could give joy to others. Michele died on September 21, 2017 and donated many of her purchases back to SAQA to share them with others.
