Wrap Yourself in a Rainbow Quilt Auction 2021

Auction items due by October 31, 2021

 Auction opens November 30, 2021

Auction closes December 6, 2021 

GSAFE wants to help you get cozy while supporting our LGBTQ+ youth. We are inviting quilters and other fiber artists to donate to our annual “Wrap Yourself in a Rainbow” online quilt and craft auction to be held November 30 – December 6, 2021. 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 items are cool and encouraged, too!) 

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

How to donate items: Please complete this quilt auction donation form (PDF or Word) and return by email or along with your donation. Please email quilts@gsafewi.org to make arrangements for mail or drop off, especially if close to deadline. Depending on your location we might be able to do a pick up. 

Deadline: Our deadline for receiving completed items is October 31, 2021. We might be able to take submissions after that, but it is not guaranteed.  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? We are soliciting donations from GSAFE supporters and folks who love and support LGBTQ+ youth to help us help you make something awesome! Please email us at quilts@gsafewi.org if you’re ready to make something but don’t have access to materials. We’ll do our best to assist!

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!  

Can I contribute a non-fiber art item? Possibly! Please reach out to us at quilts@gsafewi.org with your item or idea. 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 using the images below and by signing up for and sharing our Facebook event. 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!
