The bag will be auctioned off to raise money. The item can be anything having to do with sewing but have not had time for or don’t need or just don’t want. If it will fit in the bag, we will bid on it. It’s that simple, so bring what you have and let’s have an auction. Make sure to bring your raffle Fat Quarters.
