Guild Members’ Sale Table

During Festival of Quilts the Quilt Guild operates a Sales Table where Members’ items can be sold on your behalf. These could be quilt tops, finished quilts, toys & other patchwork or embellished items. The Guild takes no commission on goods sold.

We ask that all items be clean and in good condition.  If your item is a UFO with extra fabric or pattern attached, these are to be put in a clear plastic bag & labeled.  Customers are often very interested in these to finish off themselves. This year we ask that you enter the type of quilt rather than size e.g. King, Queen, Double, Single, Cot, Wall hanging etc.  This makes it so much easier for the ladies selling the items.

Members will be able to submit a maximum of 8 items each.  There will be a surcharge of $2 per item to cover expenses. Non refundable.  Any surplus funds from this sales fee will be given to Community Quilts.

Justine Jones, Chris Behersing & Ruthena Clement will collect these items from 10.30-12.00 at Freemans Bay Community Centre at the October Guild meeting, issue receipts  and advise members on an appropriate asking price (if you are unsure of what to ask).

We request that you make the price reasonable in line with other quilt items offered for sale. Your Membership Number for 2016-2017 is required on your Sales Sheet.

Members can collect their sale monies at the end of each day at Festival of Quilts from 3.30pm onward and 2pm on Sunday.  Don’t forget to present your receipt for both money and any unsold items.  Uncollected money together with unsold items may be collected at the December Guild meeting. Your receipt must be presented before items will be returned or monies paid out.

Insurance. The AQG Inc will take all reasonable precautions to protect sales items while stored for sale and while on view during Festival of Quilts. The AQG Inc. or any of its members cannot be held responsible for any damage to or loss of items during the period of Saturday 1 October to Saturday 3 December 2016, or until the time the items are picked up by the owner.

Guild members shall be responsible for insuring their own sale items.


Please print clearly, write in your Guild membership No. and sign the form and bring it to the October meeting with your sales items.
