Donate to our Quilt Auction

Online Auction Coming in late November – stay tuned and follow us on Facebook and Instagram for updates!

As the days get shorter and temperatures start to dip, GSAFE wants to help you get cozy while supporting our LGBTQ+ youth. We are inviting quilters (along with crocheters, knitters, and other crafty artists) to donate to our “Wrap Yourself in a Rainbow” online quilt and craft auction to be held in late November and early December. We appreciate your time, talent, and generosity in advance!

Here’s what you need to know: 

Theme: “Wrap Yourself in a Rainbow”  Whether Trans Pride, Philadelphia, Progress, or ROYGBIV, all rainbows are welcome and encouraged! (Non-rainbow quilts are cool and encouraged, too!) 

Size: Lap size and larger. Could be a table runner, wall-hanging, and other styles. We’ve even received a quilted rainbow bath mat!

How to donate items: Please complete this quilt auction donation form (PDF or Word ) and return by email or by mail. Please email quilts@gsafewi.org to make arrangements for mail or drop off. Depending on where you live we might be able to arrange for a pick up. 

Deadline: End of October is strongly preferred, although our hard deadline is November 18th.  Please drop us an email at quilts@gsafewi.org if you’re working on something and need a little longer.

I’m ready to quilt but don’t have supplies, help? Thank you to everyone who donated fabric – as of now our stock is gone. However, we have a few quilt kits that have been donated to us that have not yet found a maker. Might one of them be for you? Please email us at quilts@gsafewi.org if you’re interested.

Does my quilt need to be fully finished? Completed quilts are desired. We have a small crew of volunteers who might be able to assist by providing batting, backing, and quilting. Please let us know if you need an assist!  

I’m not a quilter, but I make a mean afghan/scarf/handbag/etc. Can I contribute? Yes, but please reach out to us first at quilts@gsafewi.org. If your item doesn’t work for this particular auction, there might be other opportunities!

How else can I help? Spread the word to your friends, family, and network. Make a direct donation to GSAFE at bit.ly/gsafequilts. Donate quilt-quality fabric and/or quilting skills. Sponsor our auction. Email us at quilts@gsafewi.org with your ideas!
