Success! Foto/Fiber 2012

The incredible Virginia Spiegel has once again come through in spearheading a fabulous fundraiser for the American Cancer Society.  In just two days, Foto/Fiber 2012 raised over $7,000, bringing the total raised by Fiberart For A Cause to over $220,000.

I am honored to be associated with FFAC and with Virginia's efforts to raise money for the ACS.  My BONUS package has been sent out to the generous donor who purchased art at this on-line event.  Here's part of the package I sent ... a fiber-art postcard called "Delicata Wingosa".  (I must have been subliminally influenced by the Harry Potter books!)

Delicata Wingosa, 4x6"
As someone who has lost loved ones to cancer (and who among us hasn't?), I send my heartfelt thanks to all who participated ... both patrons and artists, and most especially to Virginia Spiegel.

Today's the day - Foto/Fiber 2012 Fundraiser!

Today, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. (CST),  is the GOLD DONOR Day for those who wish to contribute a minimum of $100 to Virginia Spiegel's famous Fiberart For A Cause fundraiser for the American Cancer Society.

Tomorrow (same hours) is the regular day for those who wish to contribute a minimum of $50 to the cause.

If you choose to donate today, you may pick your choice of not only the photo(s) that you want, but also a specific artist's BONUS.  If you wait until tomorrow, the artist's BONUS will be randomly chosen for you.
