Like so many other nonprofits and charities, Thimble Pleasures Quilt Guild had a very difficult 2020. The guild, with members from all over the local area, had been preparing for over a year for their biennial quilt show which was scheduled for March 14-15, 2020. Due to the encroaching pandemic, the show was cancelled two days prior to the event, creating multiple problems as the quilt show funds guild programs and charitable works for the two years following the event. Since the pandemic began, the guild has been meeting virtually on Zoom and continuing charitable programs throughout the area. Since there are still restrictions on public gatherings, Thimble Pleasures will have an online fundraiser auction this year to help defer expenses.
The Thimble Pleasures Quilt Guild Auction Fundraiser will run from April 16-May 19,, 2021. The auction contains a wide variety of handmade quilted items created and donated by the Thimble Pleasures members. Funds raised from the auction will be used for programs promoting the art of quilting; a scholarship to a deserving high school senior; charitable programs, including the Senior Lap Quilt Project and the Alzheimer’s/Dementia Fidget Quilts Project for local nursing homes, and aid in many more guild activities.
Thimble Pleasures will be accepting cash, check or PayPal. Items will be shipped at the expense of the auction winner or may be picked up locally if close to Mendon, Massachusetts. Shipping details vary and are detailed in the individual auction listings.
