How the Auction Works

The 2016 Benefit Auction will take place from September 16 through October 9. The Auction will kick-off with Diamond Day bidding - an early bird opportunity to purchase ANY quilt for $1000. ALL pieces will be available for $1000 throughout the duration of the auction.

The 12" x12" Auction Quilts will be divided up into three sections for bidding purposes. Each week, a different section of quilts will be available for bidding, starting at $750 and further reduced throughout the week.

At the end of each bidding period, remaining quilts will be available for purchase in the SAQA store. Unsold quilts will also be sent to Houston for the International Quilt Market and Festival (early November). 

Note: Unlike previous years, there will NOT be a separate section only available in Houston. ALL quilts will be available for online bidding in Section 1, 2 or 3.
