The Power of WE

Today is Blog Action Day when bloggers around the world unite to make a difference.  This year’s theme is The Power of We.
WELL!  As fiber artists we have proven again and again that together we can raise significant amounts of money for causes dear to our hearts.
Our Fiberart For A Cause has already raised more than $220,000 for the American Cancer Society and we aren’t quite ready to call it quits yet.
Mark your calendars for February 12 and 13, 2013 for FFAC’s next big event.
Artwork from these eleven amazing and generous artists will arranged on a calendar grid and be up for bid:
Will you choose your favorite artist, your favorite artwork, or your fav month?  The art may or may not be themed to the month, but you know it will be wonderful from this lineup of artists.  All artwork will be mailed directly to you after the event by the artist.
Previews of the artwork as well as how and where to bid will be coming soon.  As always, 100% of the donations go directly to the American Cancer Society through Fiberart For A Cause.
December in our Year of Art will be Inspiration Month with a collection of beautiful books, tools, and materials which will all go to ONE lucky person.  You are entered in the drawing for this prize package automatically by placing a bid (winning or not) or by making a donation to the American Cancer Society through Fiberart For A Cause during A Year of Art.
