Fiber Art for a Cause

I'm very pleased to be involved with an American Cancer Society fundraiser that will be happening soon.



I'll be offering for auctions, a "Tote" with a copy of my book "Art + Quilt",

this sketchbook with a handmade and beaded cover,

and some lovely yardage dyed by Connie Akers.


Here are the nuts and bolts from it's organizer, Virginia Spiegel:

ToteTuesday, a Fiberart For A Cause fundraiser for the American Cancer Society, will open Tuesday, February 2 and continue through March.


ToteTuesday will feature themed totes filled with unique, beautiful, and inspiring items from the worlds of fiber arts, knitting, art quilting, mixed media and surface design.


You can expect totes offering original artwork, autographed books, hand-dyed fabrics, gorgeous yarns, handmade journals, fun and useful materials/tools for mixed-media and surface design, and much, much more.


A list of the twenty-four themed totes now in progress is here:

100% of the proceeds will be donated directly to the American Cancer Society through Fiberart For A Cause. Fiberart For A Cause has already donated over $190,000 to the ACS:

Have you decided on a opening bid? Trying to calculate the go for gold price... I love your work...such a fan.

I think Virginia chooses the opening bid - but most of the totes will probably start at $100 which would probably put the "go for the gold" donation at $300.00.

We all got a great laugh when Virginia told us she had planned to raise $1000 with ten totes on two Tuesdays. Fiber artists are much too generous to let that be the case and I'm betting she's going to go over 10k!!!

She's upgraded the listings page with many more pictures of the totes being offered.
