Donate to our Quilt Auction

Online Auction Coming in November – stay tuned!

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”  (Items don’t have to be all rainbow colors, however!)

Size: Lap size and larger. Could be a table runner, wall-hanging, and other styles. 

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. 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? We have a limited amount of quilt-quality fabric that has been donated to this project. If you’d like to check out our stock or help us replenish it, please email us at quilts@gsafewi.org  

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!

Testimonials

“Some of the boys used the expression ‘No Homo’ when playing a game and I immediately talked to them about what that phrase means and how it is offensive. GSAFE’s training prepared me to intervene in that moment.”
