The Boutique is our gift shop, selling new, finished quilting or sewing-related items to the public. Think purses, small quilts, baby and child items, Christmas items, etc. It is preferred that these items are handmade, not purchased. Contact Cindy Dolaway at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Book Nook is our gift shop for gently used quilting books, magazines and notions (rulers, templates, etc.) Donate those unfinished projects and patterns you started and hated that are stacked up in your sewing room.

The Silent Auction section will accept 20 items or baskets to raffle off to the highest bidder. These do not have to be sewing related! Think wine, coffee, spa, gift certificates, etc. This is where Seaside’s family members can contribute to the inspiration that is quilting. Contact Karen Windsor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
