An Online Auction Benefiting the Weavers Guild of Minnesota
April 24-May 2, 2021

What an awesome experience! After a busy week of bidding (and nervously refreshing the auction site on our screens), we are proud to announce that the auction proceeds exceeded our goal by nearly 50%! Thanks to our generous makers, who donated their handmade items to the auction. Thanks to our purchasers, who bid on and won these incredible items, often bidding above the stated item value. And finally, thanks to our volunteers who have spent the last five months planning and executing this amazing event. The auction has been completed for just a few days and already participants are volunteering their praise for how well the event was run.

— Karin Knudsen, Operations Manager
