The festive fundraising event was part of the Studio Art Quilt Associates conference, recently held in Alexandria, Virginia. About 65 donated gems were laid out on tables for the silent auction, and bidding was heated.
I was thrilled that Elizabeth Bamberger of Oregon was willing to donate $425 to acquire Berkhamsted #3, making it one of the top sellers at the fun event, which raised over $10,000. I had lots of very positive comments about the work. All in all, a most worthwhile effort.
