"Little Quilts, Big Talents

Online Auction

 

Welcome to our "Little Quilts, Big Talents" online auction! Bidding will begin at 8 am EDT on Saturday, July 15 and will conclude at 10 pm EDT on Sunday, July 30. 

The Virginia Quilt Museum is the official quilt museum of the Commonwealth of Virginia and its mission is to celebrate and nurture Virginia's quilting heritage.

Your participation in this auction will provide funding to create new Museum programs and interactive exhibits, preserve the antebellum home of the Museum, and develop more collaborative relationships with Virginia’s quilt guilds and businesses.

We live in an interconnected world. We would like to connect with every individual or business that supports quilting. With your support, we will be able to provide others with more educational program offerings, both at the Museum and offsite. Quilting is more than just a hobby craft; it is an artistic expression that can encompass all the joys and pains of everyday life.

We hope you will join us in spreading the joys of quilting to more people by sharing this auction on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, email, and any other way you wish!!

Thank you for your support and Happy Bidding!!
