Foto/Fiber 2012 and ACS fundraiser

Once again Virginia Spiegel is working her magic. 
She makes the world a better place. I'm so honored to be part of her project to raise funds for the American Cancer Sociery.
How Does Foto/Fiber 2012 Work?
90 Photos AND 90 BONUS Fiber Surprises
Beauty and Mystery Unite to Fight Cancer
1. Ninety beautiful and inspiring photos by Virginia A. Spiegel

Hope is the winged bird
(with apologies to Emily Dickinson)
All photos are 7x5" and mounted to archival acid-free 1/8" foam board. Each is matted with an archival mat to 10x8." Each photo is titled/signed by me and packaged in a clear envelope. Only three of each photo will be available. I do not plan to offer my photos for sale online so this is a one-off opportunity. All photos will be available for preview no later than February 14, but I will be featuring photos on my blog and here periodically.

2. Ninety BONUS Fiber Surprises from an amazing team of fiber artists
All BONUS Fiber Surprises will be mailed directly to you by their creators in a Size 0 (6x9") bubble envelope mailer. This is the size in which a CD fits nicely. Each artist will be donating from one to three BONUS Fiber Surprises.

I asked the donors to make the BONUSES wonderfully wonderful, creative, and unique. You might receive a small work of art, handpainted or dyed fabric, screen printed Lutradur, vintage kimono scraps, a small original screen for printing, dyed embroidery thread, a small bundle of "magical" raw materials, etc., etc. Check out the list of generous artists (links are to their websites/blogs); you know your BONUS will be just that:

3. Drawings for Fiber Art
All patrons of Foto/Fiber 2012 will also have the opportunity throughout Foto/Fiber to win fiber art generously donated by:

Leonie Hartley HooverLyric Kinard

Yvonne Porcella: Teal Flower for OV, 6x9" mini-quilt .
The drawing for this artwork will be from the 90 patrons of Foto/Fiber 2012
whose lives or the lives of ones they love have been affected by cancer.
(I'm thinking it will be all 90, no?)


Mary Ann Van Soest: Yellow Barns II, 18x24" quilt
The drawing for this artwork will be from all 90 patrons of Foto/Fiber 2012
once we meet our goal of $7000 raised for the ACS.
