Showcase - Auction Item #3 - Quilter's Bee Giving Charity Fundraiser

quilter's bee giving generic event button

The Quilter's Bee Giving Charity Fundraiser will soon come to an end.  Online auctions will be closing item by item sometime between now and December 17th. I'm shooting to announce "all"  auction and raffle prize winners by the 17th!   To clarify, as this is a charity fundraiser SewCalGal reserves the right to close each auction item on an undisclosed time. So, don't wait till the last minute to bid on something you might be interested in. And, please don't overlook that the winner gets to write their check to their favorite of the four non-profit charities showcased in this event and 100% of the funds raised will be donated to these charities too!

Raffle ticket sales are now closed, but as I'm waiting to receive checks (donations) from a couple of people, I am anticipating not drawing raffle winners until after mail is delivered on Monday, December 16th.  So, look for a late post that day to announce the lucky raffle winners.

Today I want to showcase one of the auction items that will be closing sometime this week.  This prize bundle is an excellent value, filled with many items of quilty goodness that you may want to keep, or share some with your quilty friends.

Auction Item #3

Edyta Sitar prize pack

I want to share more insight on what is included in this prize bundle, which will be shipped to one lucky Winner in the US, compliments of Landauer Publishing.

Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts has put together a calendar to make you look forward to each new month. Gorgeous blocks from her book  Seasonal Silhouettes    are showcased all year long.  This is a 12"x12" calendar with all of the blocks from her Seasonal Silhouettes book showcased in this beautiful calendar.

Seasonal Silhouettes", by Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts has 12 inspirational quilt blocks featuring raw-edge applique in a 96 page book.  Here are photos of a few of the blocks in this book: 

A Seasonal Silhouette "laser cut" kit from batiks, which has fusible webbing applied to the pre-cut and a 13" x 17" background fabric (for finished block size 12"x16").  These kits are available for all 12 of the blocks in the Seasonal Silhouette Book.  Exactly which kit is shipped to the winner will be decided by Landauer Publishing.  But, for those that do want to purchase a full kit you can find it through Laundry Basket Quilts.

This prize bundle also includes 1 Paint Box Batik Charm Pack (photo not available to share).  

I hope you agree this is a wonderful bundle that is definitely a "must have" prize for fans of Edyta Sitar, as well as an excellent prize for anyone that enjoys raw edge applique and wants to create spectacular quilt projects using designs from this book.

Don't forget to check out all of the items currently open for bids in the online auction.  They will each be closed for bidding sometime between now or around December 16th.  The date of closure is a secret, as this is an online charity auction and SewCalGal wants to minimize potential last minute bidding bombers!

SewCalGal is also playing catch up with sending email acknowledgements to those that have donated by way of purchasing raffle tickets.  I'm currently working to log these in my tracking spreadsheet, where virtual raffle ticket numbers are uniquely assigned for every $ dollar donated.  And, as I do I will be sending out individual emails before the big raffle drawing on the 17th.  As the 15th is a Sunday, I'm holding off drawing the raffle winners till the 17th to allow for last minute raffle ticket purchases to arrive via USPS on Monday, December 16th.

For more info on the four non-profit charities showcased in this event click here.  100% of the funds raised thru the Quilter's Bee Charity Fundraiser will be donated to these great causes and you can select which of the four that you wish to donate to when you  win a bid on an auction item.
