Virginia Spiegel is a talented Collage/ Fiber Artist. She is also very talented in the area of fundraising for a good cause. She has found a way to get money donated to the American Cancer Society by asking Fiber Artists to donate one or more of their collage/mini quilts and holding an auction selling the donated artworks. You can learn about all the specifics on her blog at this address:
Mending 1 (my little contribution). Stamped birch bark, organic and glass beads, wool, cotton and paper threads, silk ribbon and batik.
The auction is coming up soon on May 5th and May 6th. I hope that you will take a look on those days and maybe purchase one of the collages. It is for a very needed cause. I am sure that all of you have been touched one way or another by Cancer. There is need for more research and that means more money to collect.
