Coachella Valley Quilt Guild Auctions

The Coachella Valley Quilt Guild has often had the great fortune to be gifted items to be used to benefit the guild.  We are able to sell these items in both silent and live auctions at the meetings, enabling us to raise money to fulfill our mission of promoting our craft.   The auctions often feature antique or vintage quilts, completed quilt tops, kits and patterns.
