FALL CRAFT FAIR & LIVE AUCTION

FALL CRAFT FAIR ITEMS

All craft items should be of outstanding quality and are to be handmade and new. At sites where allowed, baked goods are also in high demand. Check individual site schedules for any restrictions. Each craft item must be tagged with the church name and number and price in order for your church to receive credit. (Please pin tags on cloth items).

Churches donating items with no church name or number will not receive credit for these items.

The site committee will donate any unsold items not claimed by the donating church at the end of the day.

QUILTERS and CRAFTERS

Both quilts and woodcraft items will be featured at our Ingathering auctions. Your creativity and long hours of work will be the highlight of the show! Auction items will be displayed and then sold during the auction.

POLICIES

The quilt/woodcraft auction cashier will have available an “Acknowledgement of Donation” form for the buyers when they pay the cashier after the auction. This donation form MAY be needed by the buyer of any outstanding large quilt or woodcraft item depending upon the purchase price because the donation form is necessary for tax purposes only if the buyer has paid more than $250 ABOVE the Fair Market Value (appraised value) for the item.

The form attached to the auction item may be used to fill out the “Acknowledgement of Donation” form. The donation form can be signed by the auction cashier and the site chair.

Only the person or church donating an auctioned craft may designate it to any of the five Thanksgiving Ingathering projects. This information must be attached to the Remittance Form for proper crediting.

ATTENTION!

Churches looking for sturdy material for making school bags for UMCOR: the Wilton, Iowa UMC has rolls of material available. This material is from Allsteel in Muscatine, IA and is good quality upholstery material. If you want, they will send it to you. Twenty yards costs about, $10 to $13 to ship. Call for church hours at 563-732-2084.

The quilt/woodcraft auction cashier will have available an “Acknowledgement of Donation” form for the
buyer when they pay the cashier after the auction. This donation form MAY be needed by the buyer of
any large item depending on the purchase price, because the donation form is necessary for tax
purposes if the buyer has paid more than $250 ABOVE the Fair Markel Value (appraised value) for the
item. The form attached to the auction item may be used as the “Acknowledgement of Donation” form,
when signed by the auction cashier and the site chair.

The Fair Market Value (appraised value) should be determined by the donating church group for each of
their donated items and written on the above form before the quilt or woodcraft item is brought to the
Thanksgiving Ingathering auction site.

For most tied comforters, baby quilts, wall hangings, or other small projects, it would be very rare for
them to bring the $250 above the appraised value that would require the “Acknowledgement of
Donation” form required for tax purposes.

The tax deduction may be taken for any price paid above the appraised or fair market value as a
donation to the Thanksgiving Ingathering.

A good way to promote quilts is to display them in the donating church and take reserve bids.  Usually,
highest bids for a given item come from a local church member or person in the community.
