Hand-Made Quilt for Sale - OtP Fundraiser
« on: May 24, 2017, 12:52:57 am »
A Queen-sized quilt is being sold to raise funds for OtP. The quilt was machine-pieced, and machine-quilted, by Irene (Funsize). She designed, cut, and made the quilt, and it's being offered to benefit the OtP guys.
Very hard to place a value on this quilt, but it's not cheap.

Here are the rules/guidelines for the auction
- Auction starts now, ends at 4 PM on Thursday June 15th - this is the Thursday of the National.
- Announcement of the Winning bidder will part of agenda Thursday evening; winning bidder does not have to be at the National.
- Auction will be announced on the COG Facebook page. The link to the auction thread will be posted there.
- Bids will be accepted on the COG Forum; if someone not on the forum wants to bid, they can contact me for arrangements. I will be able to proxy bid for them for the amount they bid; the top bidder's name will be included on my post on the forum.
- Quilt will be on display at Rally Central, along with instructions for bidding. There will be a box with cards they can fill out, and I will "proxy bid" for them based on info submitted on the card.
- Payment can be made by going to the "Over the Pond 2017" fundraising page, or by check made out to COG.
- Winner can take it with them, or they can have it shipped to their house - domestic shipping with insurance will be provided at no extra charge.

LET THE BIDDING BEGIN - BID HIGH, BID OFTEN!!

Nice. Nope, not cheap. You see them up here in the mountains priced in the hundreds if not thousands of dollars. NICE work Irene!

OK... As of now, the quilt is on display in the registration room for the National. Anyone interested can submit bids by using the forms provided.
Stop by the table and take a look in person. It looks better in person than in the photos.
Thanks!!!

Yes.
The quilt is on display in the registration room. There is a box and forms for anyone who wants to submit a bid at the rally.
We are checking the box and so far there have not been any bids submitted here.
If anyone submits a bid, I will post it here.
Dave, is this what you are asking?
