fighting the battle against cancer through the power of fiber art

I've enjoyed being a supporter of Virginia Spiegel's Fiberart for a Cause ever since she started it. Even more so after cancer touched my family a few years ago.

This is the last year that Virginia will be fundraising for the American Cancer Society through Fiberart for a Cause (FFAC). The project has donated over $165,000 to the American Cancer Society during the course of the past few years. I am extremely grateful for her immense efforts and selfless sacrifice of all her time and generosity.

One of the biggest fundraisers for FFAC is about to kick off. The 2009Invitational Reverse Auction is nearing. I was incredibly honored to be a part of the 2007 Reverse Auction with my piece, At the Heart of It.

This is how it works: there are three days in which the artwork can be bought. Each day the price of the artwork drops but don't wait until the last day - you could miss your favorite piece! Each artwork is donated by the artist and 100% of the purchase price is donated to the American Cancer Society.

I am excited to pass on the announcement that this year's artwork is available for preview.

All of the artwork and all the minimum donations listed for each day for each artwork are now up on the Reverse Auction's website.

The invited, and generous, artists are:

Natalya Aikens
Gerrie Congdon
Marjorie DeQuincy
Rayna Gillman
Carol Larson
Linda Teddlie Minton
Susie Monday
Judy Coates Perez
Leandra Spangler
Roxane Stoner

On the Reverse Auction artists' pages, read about the artists' materials,techniques and inspiration and see full and detail views of the artwork. This is an incredible line up of talent!

Please join me in making this fifth and final Reverse Auction the best one yet!!!

Lynn, thank you so much for your post about the Reverse Auction! I think this may be the most exciting one because it's the last one. (I've been surfing the rest of your blog too ... now I've got to get back to work!) Thanks again.
