One Foot Square 2010 for SAQA Auction

One Foot Squares
Southern California members who have turned in a one foot square by the deadline for the auction and attached a hanging sleeve will be in for a treat at Festival in Long Beach.  50% or more of the squares that will be hung on the wall above the SAQA booth tables are going to be from SoCaL SAQA members.  All the more reason to make one and send it in! 

SAQA's Benefit Auction is our biggest fundraiser.  Last year we had donations from 235 members and raised $47,325!!!

We are again asking for your donation - an art quilt approximately 12" square.  Your artwork will have both a thumbnail and full-screen version, with a description and a link to your website.  We can accept only ONE donation per artist.

QUILT PREPARATIONS:
Please put a label on the back of your quilt with your name, title, year made, website, blog address, e-mail address.  Please sew on a small (2 or 3") sleeve for hanging/displaying your work.

DONATION SHIPPING:
Pat Gould (patriciacgould@gmail.com) Auction donations need to be shipped to:
Pat Gould,  12620 Towner Avenue NE, Albuquerque, NM 87112

Please ship your quilt using some kind of tracking system such as FedEx, UPS, or USPS Delivery confirmation. With 250 - 300 quilts expected to arrive at Pat's home, it takes much valuable time for Pat to email each of you when the quilt arrives. If you use a tracking number, your work is easier to trace if it doesn't arrive in Albuquerque.

Please send the following information with your donation AND send as an email to: patriciacgould@gmail.com.
Title of piece
Your Name
Full Address
Email Address
Website URL
1-2 sentence description of the piece

DEADLINES:  Final Deadline: July 1st

IMAGES:  Pat will arrange to take a photo of your work.  If you would like to have it appear on SAQA's website right away, email a good quality jpg (no larger than 800 x 800 pixels, with the background edited to pure white or cropped completely to the edges of the square - a white wall is not the same thing!), with your name, the title and your website's URL directly to:
Eileen Doughty, ef.doughty@verizon.net
If you would like your website/blog linked to your name, send its link also.


AUCTION CALENDAR AND PRICES:  This year's Auction will begin on Monday, September 20th at 2:00 Eastern and conclude on Saturday, October 9 at 2:00 Eastern. Price points will again
