Blog Tour – Virginia Spiegel

Today’s blog tour participant is Virginia A. Spiegel.  Virginia is a prolific artist and author.  Her trips to the Boundary Waters Canoe Wilderness Area provide the inspiration for beautiful and thoughtful artwork that incorporates painted, collaged and stitched fabric and paper. She exhibits her work widely, and has placed it in many private and permanent collections.

I met Virginia online years ago, in the listserve days, when I was first involved in the then-novel production of mail art fabric postcards.  Virginia took that concept and ran with it, establishing Fiberart for a Cause, which to date has raised more than $240,000 for the ACS. I've been a proud participant of many of her fundraisers, and Virginia remains one of the few people for who I will drop everything and help with whatever she is proposing.  She is a meticulous organizer and has the ability to make everyone involved in her projects feel valued and part of the larger good.  So I am particularly pleased that she agreed to help with my blog tour, and excited to click over and see her review of my Quilting Arts Workshop Video Surface Design Essentials for the Printed Quilt.
