Still time to create a piece of art for Collage Mania to benefit the American Cancer Society!

26 Mar 2009

If you're on the east coast, it's going to be a soggy, puddle-dodging weekend. If you're in the Denver area, you poor people are going to be snowed in!

You could sulk that your gardening plans are on hold ... or you could rejoice that this is the perfect excuse to quarantine yourself in your studio and create some pieces of art for Collage Mania to benefit the American Cancer Society. All you need to do is create a piece of art that's 8" x 10" and make sure your piece is comprised of some form of fiber. Easy enough, eh? The due date for JPEGs for these precious little bits of yourselves for the online auction is April 1st. All of the details on Collage Mania and how to submit can be found on Virginia Spiegel's website.

I've made three so far during a couple of after-work, late-night sewing sessions this week, and plan to make at least two more this weekend.

The Collage Mania auction commences May 5, 2009. Will you join me in either making a piece and/or bidding?
