Call for Entry Deadline

Be part of SAQA’s most-anticipated fund-raising event! Donate a 12 x 12-inch art quilt to support our exhibition and outreach programs. This year's Benefit Auction will take place online from September 10 through October 3. 

We will be accepting submissions through the end of June, with a final receive by deadline of July 9th. Please review the information below before completing the submission form.

Questions? Please email us at auction@saqa.com.

Submission Form

Auction Quilt Requirements
  • Donations MUST be 12” x 12”. All embellishments and/or hanging methods must be within the 12” x 12” size. Only ONE work per artist will be accepted. 
  • All artwork donated must be ready to hang. This can include a sleeve, corner pockets, or attached loops/rings.
  • Artwork on stretcher bars will be accepted but may not be any larger than 12” x 12” after mounting and should be no deeper than 1 inch (2.5 cm) after mounting. Artwork on stretchers must have hooks and wire attached for hanging.
  • All donations must have a label on the back, with the title (or "untitled") and artist's name clearly written.
Digital Image Requirements

When you complete your submission form, you have the option to include a digital image (jpg format) of your quilt. This image should be good quality: evenly lit, in focus, no smaller than the preferred size of 1200 x 1200 pixels. Files should be no large than 4MB (the online form has a size limit).

Please take the picture on a contrasting color to your edges (pure white works best but use black or dark grey for lighter pieces). A large piece of posterboard makes the perfect background (unlike wood floors, carpet and tables). This will ensure your image looks its best when displayed on the website.

While a photo is not required, we do strongly encourage that you include one as we use these for social media promotion (and this assists in identifying quilts without labels).
