    I just finished this Christmas quilt last weekend (up until 2 am working on it). It is 79" W x 80" L.

    I will be donating it to a craft co-op store that I belong to in Oak Park, IL as a fundraiser for our 37th annual craft show on 11/06/11. My question to you is how much should we charge for a raffle ticket? Your feedback would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Birdhse

    We always do 1 ticket = $1. 6 tickets = $5.

    We found that works well. Be sure to allow ample time to sell tickets. It helps too if people have a good-quality photo of the quilt that they can show to co-workers, friends, relatives, etc.

    I like the browns that you added to it.

    I'm willing to do the $1 for one ticket, 6 tickets for $5 route.

    ditto for one of my guilds
    the other guild is selling $2/each and 3 for $5 - not selling as well as the other guild
    both lovely quilts, but easier for me to sell the $1 and $5 tickets

    While I have nothing to offer re: pricing, I'm going to encourage my Oak Park-based daughter and her fiance to attend and buy some raffle tickets!

    I love the quilt and I think the $1 per ticket 6 for $5 is a great idea. Now here is a question do you have to be present to win? Heck I would buy several tickets!! ;)

    I agree. We use the 1.00 for one and 6 for 5.00. People like to have more chances to win. When we did 5.00 tickets sold less. Good luck with the raffle. The quilt is beautiful and you should sell lots. Good job.
