Tote Tuesday!

Virginia Spiegel has done it again! Yes she did say she was retiring from fund-raising, heh! Not so fast.. she is at it again and of course for a worthy cause - the American Cancer Society. Here's the scoop ~>

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 art quilting, fiber arts, knitting, beading, mixed media and surface design.

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

A list of the more than 20 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.

Please mark your calendar for Tuesday, February 2 and be prepared to be amazed!

And I am participating too! My tote will have in it my new Cloth Paper Scissors Workshop DVD and a selection of goodies from my own personal recyclables stash! Some dryer sheets, painted and not, plastic bags, fun netting, colorful scraps and a few surprises. Just the right amount of stuff to get your creative juices flowing on a new work of art!

Meanwhile check out this fun interview Virginia just did with Pokey Bolton for Quilting Arts.

Natalya - I laughed when I read your remark regarding Virginia retiring...I had the exact same reaction. Thanks for your donation!
