Sashiko Quilt Project Update

Sashiko QuiltSOS

Does anyone have experience running a silent auction?

The Sashiko Quilt, inspired by Nell Coleman and created by many TMC Volunteers and friends, is now complete and it’s a beauty. It will be on display at the Museum’s Annual General Meeting on September 24.

The next step is to find a buyer for the quilt that will maximize its value, through a silent auction or a corporate donor. The organizing committee is urgently looking for help in managing this activity.

If you have experience running an online silent auction, or if you have any ideas to share, please Contact Us.
