Win a beautiful and unique American quilt, handmade for us in aid of those in need in Highbury and its surrounds.
The St Vincent de Paul society tackles poverty and disadvantage by giving practical help and support to vulnerable people.  At St Joan of Arc we run a much needed food bank and visit people needing  emotional, physical and financial assistance in our area.  
We have many people to help and limited resources to do so.  Please support us by bidding for this quilt.  If you win you will not only own something of great beauty, you will have contributed to  something really worthwhile too.
The linen, cotton and silk patchwork quilt will fit a king-sized bed, measuring 260x245cm.  
Thank you

St Joan of Arc SVP Quilt Auction
When bidding on an auction item, if you enter more than the minimum increment for an item then your bid will be used for proxy bidding. This is how it works:
1. You enter the absolute maximum that you are willing to bid for an item.
2. jumblebee places a bid on your behalf, using the minimum amount required to make you the highest bidder, i.e. current bid price plus bid increment OR the reserve price, if there is one and it can be covered by your proxy bid.
3. jumblebee continues to bid on your behalf, whenever you are outbid by another member's bid, until your maximum bid is exceeded or the auction is won.
4. jumblebee will notify you by email if your maximum bid is outbid by another member and provided the auction is still running, you will then have a chance to enter a new maximum bid if you wish.
For example:
The current bid on an auction item is £100. The minimum increment is £10. You enter a bid of £150 (your maximum bid).
Using your bid, but increasing only by the minimum increment, jumblebee sets the current bid to £110.
Another person bids £130 but they are immediately outbid by jumblebee bidding on your behalf and the current bid goes up to £140.
The auction finishes and you have won the auction item at a price of £140.
