I wrote recently about my esteem for Virginia Spiegel, and how she is one of the few people for whom I will give an immediate and enthusiastic “Yes!” when asked to participate in an event. I have proudly contributed to past fundraisers Virginia has held, and Fiberart For A Cause has already raised $240,000 through the generosity of fiber artists and patrons. With this event, we will bring the dollar amount up to cool quarter of a million dollars.
How? All the details are here: http://www.virginiaspiegel.com/FFACThe100Fundraiser.html
The setup is simple and brilliant. 100 artists are contributing work—and it’s an amazing line up! The first 100 patrons to sign up and donate $100 when the event opens on February 4 will receive a randomly selected artwork. Knowing many of the artists, and knowing the generosity of fiber artists in general, it’s entirely possible that many of the artworks will exceed the $100 valuation. I know the one I’m working on will—I’ll share some pictures soon.
So mark your calendars, and join us in this worthwhile cause.
