UPDATE…UPDATE…UPDATE…UPDATE

Fiberart For A Cause Collage Mania is now available for ‘pre-viewing’.  You can view the little art quilts I created for the event at: Collage Mania’s Page 5.  Be sure to peruse all 384 of the donated works before the sale begins on May 5th!

Fiberart For A Cause (FFAC) is underway for 2009.  I’ve just sent images for three 8 X 10 inch quilts to go on sale May 5th through 7th.

Under the direction of Virginia Spiegel, in just three years, Fiberart For A Cause (FFAC) has donated more than $165,000 to the American Cancer Society.   FFAC is striving to surpass the $200,000 mark this year.  By purchasing one (or more) of the hundreds of fiber collages and art quilts, you can help achieve this goal.  100% of the money raised goes directly to the American Cancer Society!

Gold donor day will be on May 5th, where for an $80 donation (or more if you wish), you can receive your own little work of fiber art.  On May 6th and 7th, remaining works will be available for a donation of $40.

Here’s the three quilts that I donated.  I hope you like and I HOPE you’ll buy!

Preview of all the collages and quilts donated to FFAC will begin on April 29th.  A link to the preview and sale will be available at that time through http://www.virginiaspiegel.com/CollageMania2009.html.  Be sure to mark your calendar, computer and phone timers, and tell everyone you know about this fun way to support the American Cancer Society.  Remeber 100% of your donation is tax deductible and goes directly to the American Cancer Society.
