Fiberart For A Cause, fundraising for the American Cancer Society, will wrap up with two big events in 2009.

First up will be The Invitational Reverse Auction of Fabulous Fiberarts on March 24 – 26. The invited artists who have donated fiber artwork are:

Natalya Aikens, Gerrie Congdon, Marjorie DeQuincy, Rayna Gillman, Carol Larson, Linda Teddlie Minton, Susie Monday, Judy Coates Perez, Leandra Spangler, Roxane Stoner

The Preview, with all the details about the artists, the artworks, and the minimum donations for each day opens March 19. More information about how the Reverse Auction works.

The big finale event for FFAC will be Collage Mania on May 5-7. Hundreds of fiber artworks, all finished or mounted to 8×10, donated by generous artists will be offered for a minimum $80 donation on the first day, with the minimum donation dropping to $40 on the next two days.

Our goal is to raise $20,000 in three days.

It’s not too late to participate as a donating artist. The deadline to submit jpegs is April 1st. The Call For Artists and more information.

100% of the proceeds from both these events is donated directly to the American Cancer Society through Fiberart For A Cause. Donors receive an immediate electronic receipt from the American Cancer Society.

Please contact Virginia(at)VirginiaSpiegel.com with any questions.

Fiberart For A Cause has donated over $165,000 to the American Cancer Society.

  1. Thanks so much for featuring the FFAC Reverse Auction! This has been a really fun event every year for the past 4 years, and should REALLY be exciting this year, since it’s the last one! Great eye-candy too! Happy bidding!
