It seems lately I have got into the habit of giving away some of my treasured quilts for worthy causes but I think that might stop very soon! Mind you with little Maisie's microtia there may well be something I can do in the future to help that cause. But for now this is who will benefit from my latest gift……..
It is for Kelmscott Manor - the place where William Morris lived and called 'A heaven on earth'.
There are much needed funds required to ensure ongoing preservation so I am hoping the up and coming auction with the The Society of Antiquaries will help make that happen. I am very thrilled and excited to be a small part of it all and if you click on this link you will go to the online catalogue which has just been launched. This is the link: September 25th Auction Catalogue.
It is so thrilling to be among such incredible pieces……I am lot #69……..
I would dearly love lot #75 - A Morris Sussex chair but I have no idea how I would get it to Australia!
And I also quite like lot #75 - a Morris and Co table………
But I am sure this could reach Australia without too much trouble - an original copy of May Morris's book "Decorative Needlework"……..
So if you would like to own one of my William Morris quilts (featured in my first book), then make a bid. If you live 'down under' it only cost us $100AU to post it to the UK so surely it would be the same coming back - and you would be contributing to a very worthy cause…..go for it or at least check out the amazing 88 lots up for auction - THANKYOU!
