What-amma-what-amma-what-amma BID?!

Today's the day!  The 2015 SAQA Benefit Auction kicks off today with the "Diamond Day(s)" segment.

That means that between 2:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time today, September 18, and Monday, September 21 at 1:30 p.m. EDT, ALL the quilts will be on the block for $1,000 each (whoa!)

Appearing in Section 1,
Terry is a member from B.C. 2:00 p.m. EDT on that day (Sept. 21), the Diamond Days window will be shut...and ONLY the quilts remaining in Section 1 will be on auction, at prices that gradually reduce at 2 p.m. EDT each day, ending Saturday, September 26.  On Monday, September 28, Section 2 will be open for bidding, and so on.

This year, for the first time, quilts that have been sold will have a red border around them (think of it as the red dot you see on pieces sold in galleries and in-person shows).  :-)

Appearing in Section 1,
Marie is a member from B.C.
Buyer details (if provided) will be included on the quilt detail page (displayed when you click on the thumbnail of a given quilt).  So...if you're quilt has been sold, you can see who bought it, if the buyer chooses to provide that information.
