QC Auction – April 23 –2018 –
Preview at 6 pm & Auction starts at 7 pm
QC is having an Auction, a Silent Auction and a Grab and Go Table all on the 23rd – But you know this – right????
If you want to see a sampling of what is being auctioned, please look at the website – we have posted so many items on the site that will be either auctioned or appear on the Silent Auction Table.
Auction: The auction will consist of quilts, wallhangings and larger items of notable quality. Larger Fabric packs, for example – a bungle of green fabrics totaling 12 yards of fabrics; as well as a Civil War Kit with all fabrics included; A Wood Sewing Box full of threads, notions, rulers, etc, etc,; a new Babylock Sewing Machine and a Serger and more. Everything will be numbered 1 to 60.
Silent Auction: The Silent Auction will consist of a variety of items — smaller units or kits and other misc. items that cannot fit into the main auction. We can only auction so many items in the time allowed. For those of you who are not familiar with Silent Auctions — this is how it works. The round tables on the back of the hall will have all silent auction items. They will be labeled by letter : A to Z. There will be a pile of related items with a sheet of lined paper ( also with a letter corresponding to that item) and three columns: Name, Paddle number, and Bid Price. You write your name and Paddle number as well as what you want to bid on that particular item. Someone else comes along and decides they also want that item – they add to the bid and so on . You may keep track of an item since you want it so badly that you may write your name down several times until the bidding ends at the silent auction. At a specific time during the night we will end all silent auction bids and remove all papers from the table. The last name and bid on the form will own that item. We will announce the winners and their bid will be added to their name on the computer as part of their final purchases from the auction.
Grab & Go Table : The grab and go table will consist of many smaller items – smaller bundles and misc. fabrics, notions, threads, crafts, yarns, quilting hoops and so many other items. The items you select at the Grab and Go Table will be paid for at that table so you can Pay, Grab and Go.
TOTE BAG SALE: We will also be selling the QC tote bags, should you need a bag to carry all your goodies home in. This will be a separate sale set up in the room – CASH/CHECK only
QC will not be accepting credit cards the night of the auction, – CASH & CHECKS ONLY.
At the end of the night, when you check out, we will have several people assisting to check you out at the registration table. Please be patient
When You Arrive at The Auction:
When you arrive at the auction hall, you will stop by the registration desk and sign in. If you are a member, you will receive a paddle with a number on it – this number has already been assigned to your name in our computer and you will be told what number to take from the pile of paddles. If your friend or friends come with you and they are not members, we need to assign them a number. There will be two lines for registration: — A to L and M to Z.
From there you can put your personal belongings on a seat and start shopping at the Grab and Go and/or the Silent Auction or the Tote Bag Table. All areas will be marked and All Auction items will be on the stage.
At the end of the night, when you check out, we will have several people assisting to check you out at the registration table. The Auction items you bid on and the silent auction items ( if any) will be totaled for your payment.
REMINDER: CASH & CHECKS ONLY.
Looking forward to seeing all of you on the 23rd of April.
Remember: Ones discards and donations, could be treasures for you!!!!!
