July Fabric Fundraiser
Benefitting Butterfly Boxes and Raphael House
Fabric Fundraiser: Destash and shop for a great cause! PMQG members can donate any fabric, notions, or supplies to benefit these two organizations, and we’ve set standard prices for everything - all fabric is $5/yard, FQs are $2 or 3/$5, and scrap bags are $5 and $10, depending on size. Notions and other items will also be priced reasonably.
We're still looking for donors and volunteers to help us run things (and get first look at everything!)! If you’d like to donate fabrics or supplies, please fill out the short form at the bottom of the page if you can, or email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line DONATE FABRIC. If you can volunteer to help set up tables or ring up sales throughout the meeting, please email us with the subject line VOLUNTEER. Volunteers and donors can arrive as early as 6:00 on Thursday night. You can print out general info and price labels for your fabric and other donations here or make your own with stickers, or staple on paper slips.

Need to Know:
•The sale will be cash or check made out to Portland Modern Quilt Guild only (to avoid high processing fees). Bring cash or your checkbook!
•All money raised at the fundraiser will be divided evenly between Butterfly Boxes and Raphael House, and any remaining unsold fabric & supplies will go directly to the PMQG charity quilting program. We’ll announce the total raised after the meeting and make the donations to both organizations by the following week.
•Our usual free table and ticketed door prizes will also be part of July’s meeting, so there will certainly be opportunities to find new treasures without spending any money.
•There will be several chances to shop at the fundraiser tables through the evening, and shoppers will tally up their purchases using a standard price sheet to keep track of all they’re buying. We will use the honor system and all items will be sold as a group, or fabric rounded to the nearest yard (no cutting yardage or taking scraps out of bags, for example).
