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:

ToteTuesday will take place Tuesdays in February and March 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:
