SAQA Benefit Auction Starts today!

SAQA (Studio Art Quilt Associates) is a fabulous group for art quilters around the world.  They sponsor and organize exhibits, hold classes and conferences, publish a journal, and promote many kinds of outreach on behalf of art quilters and fiber artists.  Every year they have a benefit auction with 12" x 12" pieces donated by members (all proceeds to support SAQA activities).

The quilts are divided into 4 groups (run almost like 4 independent auctions), and on each day of the auction the price drops.  For example, the first day for group 1 (today) the price for all pieces is $750, but at 1:45 tomorrow afternoon, it'll drop to $500, etc.  If there's a piece you love, better to snap it up early.

The auction for group 1 started today, check it out here: (  For more info on how the auction works and its schedule, see

My donation piece for this year (Cuttlefish) is in group 1, so is available now (among many many fabulous others).

Check out the auction if you have a chance!  There are bunches of fabulous pieces by a wide range of artists, and as the week goes on the prices drop to quite reasonable amounts ($75 at the end), so keep checking if there are ones you love!
