We have the details for our upcoming Garage Sale that will take place at our March meeting on March 17th, at the Textile Center in Minneapolis! This is an annual event that allows our members to get rid of some of their quilting goods and also serves as a fundraiser for the guild. 25% of the proceeds will go to the Minneapolis Modern Quilt Guild to be used for programming costs.
We suggest that in order to make this fun for each other and in order to actually sell your goods, that you sell quilt shop quality fabric that would appeal to our group. It's not that we do not like Civil War prints, but they probably won't sell with this group so leave those at home! Below are some suggested items to bring along with suggested prices. You are welcome to price your items above or below these suggestions, especially if it is a retired designer print or if you want to make sure they don't come home with you. :)
Fat Quarter: $2
Half Yard: $4
To prepare your garage sale items please take the following steps for each item or group of items:
- Firmly attach either a piece of tape or piece of paper that has the following information
- Your full name (printed legibly)
- Price of the item(s)
- Approximate amount of fabric (if applicable)
- If selling bundles of items, securely tie them together so that through handling it is very clear that those items are sold together
The pieces of paper will be gathered at the checkout and the total, minus the 25% guild cut will be tallied to determine the amount that will be paid to you at the April meeting. ALL ITEMS THAT ARE NOT SOLD ARE REQUIRED TO BE TAKEN HOME WITH YOU.
We will accept Cash and Check, and Credit Card as payments.
If you have any questions, please post them on the Facebook group!
