SAQA Auction

I mentioned before that my piece Ramshackle was donated for the SAQA auction. The main auction has already taken place, but some of the pieces were reserved for this week, including mine, because it is the week of the International Quilt Festival in Houston.

The auction is a reverse auction and works in such a way that the starting price goes down each day, stopping at $75 if it doesn't sell. Then it is moved into the SAQA shop. However, if there is one you like, you take a risk waiting to purchase at a lower price because someone else might snap it up.

Anyway, the first 2 days the auction will be online and then there are opportunities for visitors to the Quilt show to see the works and purchase in person.

and the second page where mine is listed.

I am looking forward to seeing if there is interest in it and at what stage it might be purchased!

All of the SAQA auction pieces are worth having a look at - even if they are already sold - just to see the variety of themes and techniques different artists use.
This link will take you to the first page of the main auction pieces and from there you can reach the other pages 1b, 2a, 2b, 3a, 3b.
