We're online again this year, yay! We are so excited to share the auction site with even more friends near and far who will be able to view and bid the quilts in their own time and space. Please feel free to visit the website now to brows the pictures and quilt details at getabidauctions.com/festivalofsharing.
So how does it work?
Live bidding will open at 10 AM CST on Nov. 7 and close at 10 AM CST on Nov. 13, 2021. Quilt photos, details, and bidding information can be found at https://www.getabidauctions.com/FestivalOfSharing. The proceeds of the online auction will still support the work of the Church World Service (CWS) Blanket program. As we see the ways CWS is responding during the pandemic and natural disasters of 2020, we are reminded of the impact our gifts and auction contributions can make.
What will I need to participate?
Access to the internet, whether that's through a phone, computer, or tablet, and an email address. When you find the quilt that's just right for you, all you have to do is click "Bid on This Item Now" and if you're new, it will take you to a registration page where you can enter your name and email or phone number. Make sure to select how you want to receive notifications so you can stay up-to-date on the items you're interested in.
I submitted the winning bid. Now what?
Congrats and thank you! If you have the winning bid on a quilt(s), you will be notified of the total amount due. At that time, you will enter your credit card information (or note if you're paying by check) and let us know if you want your items to be shipped, or if you will pick them up November 16th or 17th from 4-7 PM (3601 Amron Ct, Columbia, MO 65202). Local pick up will be free, while shipping and processing will be $12 for one item or $15 for multiple items.
The proceeds of the online auction will still support the work of the Church World Service (CWS) Blanket program. As we see the ways CWS continues to respond during the pandemic and natural disasters of 2021, we are reminded of the impact our gifts and auction contributions can make.
