Collector's Choice Auction  


Bid on art quilts from Michele Hardman’s Benefit Auction collection

Starts February 14, 2018

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.

Auction Details

Our online event will follow the same reverse-auction format as SAQA’s annual Benefit Auction, but there will only be 32 pieces up for bid during the week of February 14, 2018. All proceeds will be used to share the love of art quilts through our global exhibition program and membership outreach.

Each day, the bidding price will drop according to the schedule below. The shipping and handling fee will be a flat rate ($15 US / $30 non-US) for up to seven pieces at a time on any given date. Purchases will be by credit card only.
