Quilt and Marketplace Items Needed!
SHOW OFF YOUR CREATIVITY: A few weeks before the assembly, display for bidding, your quilt or marketplace item in your own congregation or in a public place in your community. Those items that come in with pre-bids do much better.
ASK: Make a list of creative/talented people you know and ask them to become a part of this ministry.
KNOW THE BIDDERS: Queen size quilts seem more sought after than full size quilts. Christmas quilts, holiday themes are popular as are baby quilts.
REACH OUT: Don’t overlook the skills and creativity of the men and young people you know.
SHARE A LIFE EXPERIENCE FOR THE MARKETPLACE: lead a bird watching walk, host a dinner for 6, guide a hike and picnic in your neck of the woods, give a golf lesson… there is no limit to the possibilities.
TAKE A DAY TRIP WITH FRIENDS: on Saturday April 29th, join us at Cragun’s and also take time to enjoy the area shops. We will be excited to see you!
Below are some the marketplace ideas we came up with:
Gift baskets with themes
Honey, maple syrup, jams and jellies

ATTENTION ALL QUILTERS AND MARKET PLACE DONATORS
2017 is upon us, the Synod Assembly is right around the corner, April 28-30 and we quilt and marketplace team members have been putting our heads together since last fall to brainstorm about:
As partners in this ministry, we thank you for all you have done over the last 16 years. We want you to know that at the assembly we consider the Marketplace and quilt area “Holy Ground”. …Created purely out of love and compassion for others, it changes the hearts of all who experience them. So take a day trip to the assembly; come prepared to be “awestruck” by the beauty and creativity on display; and thru your bids make a generous donation to the ELCA Hunger Appeal!
Wishing you God’s blessings in this New Year!
