Fiber Arts For A Cause -Support ACS

Virginia Speigel, noted quilter, artist, journalist and superior fund raiser for the American Cancer Society has written a beautiful online book to which you can subscribe in exchange for a $30. donation to the American Cancer Society. Virginia and her sister have worker tirelessly to raise funds for ACS. Last year (2006) at the International Quilt Festival in Houston Texas, her efforts (via Fiber Arts for A Cause) raised more than $120,000. - ALL of which went to th ACS . Artists donated art cards that were chosen by the recipient in exchange for a donation to ACS- ONE HUNDRED PERCENT DONATION TO THE ACS ! For more information about Virginia's work and her ACS fundraising - and to get a taste of her book go to

I was especially blessed to be able to work a shift in the "booth" in Houston last year - meeting some of the participants, artists & contributors. It was a highlight of the trip for me! You will find inspiration from this wonderful new book of Virginia's and you can be certain that 100 per cent of your donation goes to the American Cancer Society.

The following is a quote from Sue Bleiweiss:
"...Reading this ebook is like sitting with a good friend on the back porch on a warm spring day. Virginia's smooth writing style combined with her ability to illustrate her point with the perfect photograph amazes me. Each "chapter" of her e-book is filled with inspiring images, haiku and of course her gorgeous artwork. What a privilege it is to be able to glimpse into her world to see what motivates and challenges this incredibly gifted artist. I will visit the pages of this book again and again when I am in need of inspiration, motivation or just a moment of stillness. All the proceeds from the sale of this book go to the American Cancer Society and Virginia's goal is to raise $30,000 for cancer research and education. Visit Virginia's website at to find out how you can purchase a copy. You'll be glad you did!..."
