Nimble Thimblers Auction and Sale

Nimble Thimbler’s Annual  Auction will be held on Tuesday night, October 24th at the Crystal Community Club, 77 Preston St. Wakefield.  Lots of yardage, UFO’s, FQ’s, etc.  Add to your stash and grab a bargain!   Based on feedback from last year, there are no minimum bids, starting price will be based on attendee feedback.
Our goal this year is to limit he quantity of items for the live auction to 60; all other fabrics and goods will be available for a “Grab N Go” shopping experience which will begin at 6:30.  These items are on a first come, first serve basis.  Registration for attendees begins when the doors open at 6:30.  Each person will be assigned a paddle number and can then take advantage of  the Grab N Go fabrics and goods at pre set prices.
The Live Auction (and competitive fun) begin promptly at 7 PM and we share many laughs, try to win that item you most want with the highest bid.  Please bring a bag to carry home your items.  Charge cards are not accepted; this is a cash or check only shopping experience.
Admission is free and we welcome you to bring a friend and make new ones.
