The gavel has fallen and our 2014 online auction is all over. Nearly $9500
was raised !
Special thanks again to the volunteers and staff who helped make this our best auction yet. And our heartfelt appreciation goes out to the generous friends who donated goods and services, and to everyone who took part in the spirited bidding. We know many of you bid in hopes of obtaining a particular item, and many of you bid because of your passion for Hand Papermaking, or perhaps it was a combination of both.
Either way, we're glad you took part because Hand Papermaking needs your support. Even if some other lucky bidder walked away with that particular item you were enthused about, you can still support Hand Papermaking's non-profit activities through a tax-deductible donation. If you do, your name will be listed when we publicly thank donors.
Thank you again for caring about Hand Papermaking! See you next year!
Supported by generous donations from our friends, Hand Papermaking's annual auction provides the organization with an important source of revenue while generating enthusiasm and appreciation for the work of individual artists, for papermaking community supporters, and for the field in general.
Each year, bidders compete for donated items such as unique papers, distinctive artwork, valuable services, rare books, useful products, historic artifacts, etc. Most of the offerings are unavailable elsewhere and related in some way to hand papermaking.
