Every Tuesday in February, Virginia Spiegal has been hosting "Tote Tuesday" in her "Fiberarts for a Cause." Virginia has raised a ton of money for a variety of causes over the years, but a special project for her is the American Cancer Society.
Virginia has used her special appeal to solicit fiber arts goodies, quilts, working objects, and elements (I think that about sums it up) from lots of art quilters, famous and not so famous but very talented none-the-less people. Tote bags, often designed and hand made, are filled with all sorts of goodies and auctioned off on Virginia's site on Tuesdays in February with 100% of the proceeds going to the American Cancer Society.
At first, Virginia thought it would be great if she could raise $5,000. Well, she hit that mark on the second Tuesday, so now she's going for $10,000. This Tuesday, Feb. 16 and next Tuesday, Feb. 23 are the last Tote Tuesdays.....yes I know...I procrastinate, but you shouldn't!
Get yourself over to Tote Tuesday and take a look at what is going up for bid, and then BID ON TUESDAY!!!!! Don't wait.
Here's how, if you didn't find out the specifics on the link above.
Good luck! And if I get any birthday money tomorrow, I'll be bidding too...otherwise, just drooling...heck, I've been drooling over the ones previewed already!
