This week begins two very important quilt auctions for two very good causes.

World Quilt Federation Smackdown Auction - Nov. 1-10, 2009 - 4 renowned quilters made one quilt each to raise awarness and money to fight Alzheimer's disease. Minimum bids are $500. As of this writing, "Fadding" by H0llis Chatelain has a bid of $1,000 and Mini Passion Flowers by Becky Goldsmith a $500 bid.

The Alliance for American Quilts begins their Crazy for Quilts auction at 9 PM on Monday, Nov. 2nd through ebay. Click on the link I've provide to get complete how-to details for the opportunity to own a 16" square quilt by a major art quilter or an up and coming quiltmaker. Bidding begins at $50. This is the Alliance's (a non-profit organization) major fund raiser for the year....join the fun.

Don't forget, Christmas is just around the corner......maybe Santa can visit you or someone special in your life!
