Small Quilt Auction

Thank you for donating items to the “Small Quilt and Related Items” Committee for the September 2018 Great River Quilt Show. Proceeds from the Small Quilt and Related Items Auction that was recently held in conjunction with our 2018 Great River Quilt Show were recently distributed. Winnie’s Place, sponsored by Churches United, was the recipient of $1500.00. Dawn Thompson, Quilt Show Chairperson, is shown presenting the check to Betsy Vanausdeln, Associate Director of Churches United. Also attending the presentation were Rev. Dr. Melvin L. Grimes, Executive Director of Churches United, Diana Engelbrecht, President of the MVQG, and Nancy Jacobsen, Chair of the Small Quilt Auction Committee.

The Quillows Group, sponsored by our guild, received $400.00. Shown at that presentation are Nancy Jacobsen and Janet Zahrt, Chairperson of the Quillow Q-Tees.

The third group that received money was our local Quilts of Valor Group. Terry Austin joyfully received a donation of $1128.00 on December 4th.

The quilt auction was extremely successful. The total amount raised was $3128.00. After expenses, our distributions were made. $15.00 remains in the account for the 2020 Show. Our committee would like to offer special thanks to Cindy Anderson, who supervised our booth both Friday and Saturday, auction helpers Denny and Janet Zahrt, Ginger Arp, and Barb Freese. A special thanks goes to our auctioneers, Justin Klindt and Jennifer Broders. In addition, Carol Youngberg and Terry Austin assisted in setting up the booth on a very hot afternoon. Finally, the auction would not have been successful without the quality and quantity of items that were donated by numerous members and Expressions in Threads quilt store as well as our extremely generous bidders.
