2018 Annual Auction - September 21-28


I should have another bench ready by then.


Please remember to put items on the form. That’s the only way we can give you credit and make a nice write up for the piece. It also helps us keep what little sanity we have left.


I added this to the volunteer form:

If you can be around that night to lead tours, help with checkout, setup, clean up, etc go sign up!

Also can everyone go and invite 10-100 facebook friends to the event?


September 27th is a Thursday…


@pwhutchi thanks, I updated the description.


Is there a Facebook event set up? I can put it on my wall and the 2 pages I manage.
I plan on donating 3 or 4 acrylic flow paintings. Also, an opportunity for a custom piece your choice of color and size. You can also have a private lesson where I will help you with creating the custom piece. I will get this on the forms and to John.
Will people be able to bid on line?


Also, do we need flyers for the auction? A few would be good to have. Spice Merchant for one. Donut Whole. Maybe some of you belong to churches or your work.

And is this in The Eagle under Entertainment? There are several digital Wichita Events bulletin boards that post these kinds of events. I have a list we use for the Friends Used Library Book Sales that I’ve called in the past. I would be glad to do that for you. Just let me know please. And soon.

I just sent you an invite.


Thank you!


I just invited 500 Friends.


Where and when do we deliver items to be donated for the aucion?
Also, I have photos of my artwork I would prefer to be used if that is possible.


We will be accepting artwork next Friday, the 21st, and Saturday, the 22nd. If no one is there, I will figure out where it needs to go and let you know. I plan to be there Friday 9-3. Saturday after 5-8.


We currently have 7 items donated. Can we double or triple that by the end of the weekend?


Does that include my 4 paintings? I ask because I am going to add the auction to digital calendars around Wichita, but I’m a bit hesitant if that’s it. I have this feeling there are more of you planning to donate. I bet we have lots of ceramics.
This is a great way to support MakeICT if you haven’t been able to volunteer lately.
It would make us all sleep better if you are going to donate if you fill out the form. Pretty please? With sugar on top???


I have placed a bunch of stuff from ceramics out on the counter for the art auction. I submitted two forms. Several other folks from ceramics plan to make donations as well.

Stuff from the Ceramics Studio - “Odds ‘n Ends” left around the studio:

Pieces from Michelle LeFavor - @michelle can elaborate on descriptions and prices. I submitted a form for her just to get stuff on the list.


I’m trying to get two huge wood wichita flags done, each 2ftx3ft. Slow going!


I dropped my bench off. Left it up fronr.


Thanks everyone who is donating. Thanks everyone who is helping organize this! I love when we all pull together! :smiley:


So far we have a total of 12 responses from 8 individuals. I plan on making labels Saturday night at latest. I should be in the space by 1130 Sunday.


I can help but I can’t get there until around 5ish. I can help with whatever is needed, but I might not be the best person for giving tours yet. I probably should tag along on a maker Monday tour soon so I can see how those are scripted. LOL. There are still a couple sections that I am not familiar with as far as what those members have access to and how the area works.
