Quilt Las Vegas 2021
There will be an online silent auction at Quilt Las Vegas 2021. We encourage all DQN members who have something they want to sell to consider putting it in the auction. The member will receive 80% of the sale price, and DQN will receive 20%.
You can sell quilts that are entered in the show in the Silent Auction, other hand made items, sewing equipment, or any other quilting related items. Items will be accepted at the discretion of the Auction Committee.
We ask that items for sale be valued at $50 or more. Your minimum opening bid can be any amount, zero or greater.
The deadline for getting all your information and photos to is is March 31, but we encourage you to do it sooner if possible.
Kathy Farris is coordinating the Silent Auction, and you can call her at 702-250-2745 or email her at email@example.com if you have any questions.
How does it work? We will display photographs of your item on a Silent Auction page at www.QuiltLasVegas.com , the show website. Each item will be formatted as a blog page, and people can bid on the items in the Comments section. Bidders will use a fictitious name but their real email address. The emails will not be displayed publicly, but they will be our way to identify the winning bidders. The winning bidders will pay DQN for their items.
What does it cost? As we have done in the past, DQN will retain 20% of the sale price, and will pay the seller 80%. Of course if you want to donate something, the guild will gratefully keep 100% of the sales price. You can set a minimum opening bid, and if your item does not sell there will be no cost to you.
Do I need to be a member of DQN? Yes, only members can enter items into the Silent Auction. But you can join at the same time you enter your auction item(s). You do not need to be a member to bid on items in the auction.
What if my item needs to be shipped to the buyer? If your item can be shipped, we ask that you tell us in advance what the shipping cost would be. If the buyer is not able to come to you to pick up your item, we will collect the shipping charge from the buyer along with the sale price. You will receive the cost of shipping along with your 80% of the sale price. We will publish the shipping cost with the other information about your item. If your item cannot be shipped, just let us know and we will include that information.
