Donate Handmade or Higher Priced Items for the Silent Auction:

As part of the Guild auction and sale we will accept donations of hand-made and high value items for a silent auction.  Examples of such items would be hand-dyed, hand-woven or knitted scarves, hand-made purses, felted pins, small wall hangings, and beaded or knitted jewelry.  High value items might be kimono fabric or vintage buttons.  If you teach, you could offer a space in one of your classes. All unsold items will be returned to the donor.

Please bring your item and the donation form to the auction at 9:30 so we can process it before bids open at 10 am.  Fill out your name, phone number (in case the item doesn’t sell and we need to contact you to return it), a brief description, and the minimum bid (starting price).  You can also set a buy it now price.  The auction will close for bids at 11:30. At that time the highest bidder can bring the item, sheet, and payment to the check-out.  If someone chooses to buy the item at the buy it now price, they can bring the item and sheet to check-out at any time. Please make sure and bring a printed copy of this form with the item you are donating!

Fashion Show:

We are wanting to show off the items we have. Please consider being part of the fashion show.  Let’s display your wearable talent at our special event.  Bring a printed copy of this entry form.
