Boutique Sales and Silent Auction Fundraisers
The PPQG Quilt Showcase and Boutique event is our biggest fundraiser of the year. It is held each September, during the Labor Day weekend, at the same time as the annual Commonwheel Art Festival in Manitou Springs, CO. We hold two types of sales: (1) Silent Auction of large hand-made quilts, and (2) direct sales of smaller quilts and handiwork in our Boutique area.
You can help in several essential ways!
We welcome donated hand-made quilts, wall hangings, table runners, stuffed toys and many other items which are sold at the this event.
We also need volunteers to work the event and help with organization, set-up and etc. As they say--it takes a village!
And while we love donations of your own creation, we also have fabric kits available to help offset the costs of making donated items. These kits are available at our monthly guild meetings. For each contributed item, you will need to complete a donation form. Email Sue McMullen, Fundraising Chairperson, if you have any questions.
For your convenience, here is a grocery bag pattern for your use. Since there are no more bags while shopping (paper or plastic) without paying for them, it is fun to see what people are bringing to the grocery store!
We meet as a group on a monthly basis to work together in making quilts etc. Join us for the entire day, or come and go as needed. Bring your machine and sewing gear, or if that isn't possible--just yourself. There will be plenty for you to do to help!
2nd and 4th Tuesday of every month, beginning in April. See Home page for current dates.
