ToteTuesday is a Fiberart For A Cause fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. Over 50 artists throughout the country will be donating totes filled with a variety of books, fiber art supplies and finished artwork. These themed totes will be auctioned off every Tuesday in February. It’s a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society and a showcase for everything that is fun and creative about the fiber arts. So far, the program has raised over $5600 for the American Cancer Society.
The collective at ArtCloth Studios, of which I am a part, has donated a tote filled with goodies related to surface design. It will be up for bid on February 23rd. The collective includes 6 artists: Laura Ann Beehler, Linda Charlton, Jane Dunnewold, Martha K. Grant, Leslie Jenison and me. The tote, made with beautiful artcloth created by Laura Ann Beehler will be filled with artcloth created by collective members, as well as items that individuals can use to create their own artcloth. A photo and partial list of the contents appears on my website.
Information about how the ToteTuesday program works and about the totes to be auctioned can be found on Virginia Spiegel's blog. To bid on a tote, go to the auction bidding site. There are only two more bidding days left, February 16 and February 23. It's a great cause, so I encourage you to bid on a tote. You will benefit a worthy cause, and receive a "packet of fun".
