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 auction will take place online from September 9 through October 2.
We will be accepting submissions from April through the end of June, with a final receive by deadline of July 9th.
Questions? Please email us at email@example.com.
- 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.
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 larger than 3mb (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).
June 30: Deadline to complete submission form. Do NOT send your piece without completing this form!
July 9: Final Deadline for artwork to arrive at the address below:
12620 Towner Ave NE
Please do NOT fold your piece to fit the package! Mail your donation with a tracking number whenever possible. If needed, the SAQA phone number is 860-530-1551.
If you live outside of the US, send your piece early enough to arrive by the deadline, including time to clear Customs.
