I’ve known Virginia Spiegel for years. She is first and foremost an amazing artist whose work I admire, but also a charitable fundraiser par excellence who has raised over $215,000 to date for the American Cancer Society. I have donated artwork for several of her previous Fiberart for a Cause events, and have always been impressed with her dedication and professionalism. So when Virginia invited me to participate in her newest effort, I jumped at the chance to help out. I will be donating some bonus fiber surprises to the cause--read all about how it works below, and/or go to Virginia’s site for more information. Mark your calendars for this opportunity to donate, receive some great art, and do some good!
