MAQS Annual Benefit Auction

Deadline: April 1, 2009 (RECEIVE)**

MAQS Annual Benefit Auction

Museum of the American Quilter's Society
Paducah, KY
April 22–25, 2009

Every year the Annual Museum of the American Quilter’s Society Benefit Auction uses the good spirit of bidding frenzies to raise the funds needed to help maintain the excellence of our exhibits, contests and educational programs. Our success relies on your support through donations of fabric, notions, books, patterns and quilts of all sizes.

Donations are now being accepted for the 2009 auction! Here are just a few ways you can donate:
1) Have your guild stitch up a quilt
2) Clean out your sewing room and donate unwanted quilt tops, fabric, unused patterns, books, etc.
3) Have a product you want to promote? This is a great tax deductible way to advertise!

Items being donated can be shipped to MAQS at the address below. Please fill out an Auction Donation Form (pdf) Pre-shipping will allow for an appropriate consideration of whether to place your item(s) in the Silent or Live Auction as well as provide a prompt delivery of your receipt for tax deductions. Please include the shipment fee in the item’s value.

215 Jefferson St.
Paducah, KY 42001

**Donations may also be brought to the front desk at MAQS any time prior to 5 p.m. Tuesday of the Quilt Show week. Items received after 5 p.m., will be held for the Auction the following year.

The funds raised are extremely important to THE Museum’s success in honoring today’s quilters. For more information, contact the Director of Public Affairs at 270-442-8856, or email
