Annual Tea & Auction 2015

Here in Cordova, Alaska, many consider our guild's Tea & Auction the beginning of the holiday season.  As members, we all look forward to this event as it is our primary fundraiser!  We support two, four year scholarships each year.  We are honored to be able to accomplish that!
The event was held again this year at Orca Adventure Lodge.  Even though they have closed for the season, once again they turned the heat on and reopened the dining hall for the day!  We are so grateful ... they let us use their amazing facility free of charge!
Members volunteer to decorate a table for guests!  For some members, decorating is a family affair!

Every table is lovingly decorated to ensure our guests enjoy their tea and treats!
Members make all kinds of items to be auctioned after tea is served!
Items range from things as small as pincushions and potholders ...
... holiday themed and wool appliqué ...
... to wall quilts ...
... table toppers ...
... a never ending supply of quilting inspiration!
Members also contribute lap sized ...
... full sized ...
... and even a queen sized quilt!  As always the items were beautiful, bidding was fierce, and everyone left happy!
A special thanks to these two high school seniors!  They volunteered to assist by serving tea and showcased the quilted items during the auction!  We appreciate their assistance!
A huge thanks to Diane and her committee who worked hard to make this event successful!
