The hugely successful online portion has finished. But 106 quilts including mine, were set aside to be auctioned by in-person bidding at the upcoming Houston International Quilt Festival, in a similarly structured reverse process over the 5 days of that festival.
Prices will follow the same pattern as the online Auction does, but note the shorter bidding intervals–
Wednesday, October 31 7:00PM – 10:00PM – $750
Thursday, November 1 10:00AM – 2:00PM – $550
Thursday, November 1 2:00PM – 7:00PM – $350
Friday, November 2 10:00AM – 2:00PM – $250
Friday, November 2 2:00PM – 7:00PM – $150
Saturday, November 3 10:00AM – 2:00PM – $100
Saturday, November 3 2:00PM – 7:00PM – $75
Sunday, November 4 10:00AM – 4:00PM – $75
WHAT IF YOU AREN’T GOING TO HOUSTON AND WANT TO BUY ONE? There is also a proxy bidding system if you won’t be there. If you would like to purchase one of the pieces, have another look on line at this group http://www.saqa.com/gallery-mini-detail.php?=ID1257 – mine is on the first page there, scroll down several rows. Then call Martha Seilman, director of SAQA, at (860-487-4199) with your credit card information, saying which piece(s) you’d like to purchase at which price(s). Because it is intended to be an in-person bid process, she will wait 30 minutes after the price changes. At that time, if no one else has purchased the piece, she will use your credit card information to purchase it for you. You will then be charged the standard shipping rates that are used for the online portions of the Auction.
