I love playing on Twitter and Ustream, there are a really great bunch of inspirational people on there. From Journallers to quilters, to mixed media artists and to amazing professional artists.
One of these people is a lady called DaleAnne Potter, her medium is textiles. you can see her wonderful creations over on her blog. Just recently Dale was lucky enough to win a place on a workshop in Madrid..Spain..Europe! How fantastic is that...well there is a slight problem...
Dale is in Canada!!!
the prize was just for the workshops, not for travel expenses or hotels.
So fundraising began, Dale presold lots of her work, and other friends and artists within the Twitter/Ustream community began to donate and make items to be auctioned. All to help our friend get to the workshop. You can just imagine how much money is needed for flights and accommodation.
so here is where you guys come in. I have made a small bag, and I would like to auction it off to help Dale with her fundraising. Let's get this lady to Europe!!!
Visit Dale's blog http://daleannepotter.com/blog/ there you will see all the details of the exciting prize that she has won, and you can read about her efforts to raise money.
then please do consider placing a bid on this bag. I will make no money whatsoever from the sale of this bag. If you place the highest bid then you will donate your money directly to Dale using the donate button on her blog. Once I know she has the money I will mail the bag out to you. I will cover the cost of postage.
So here it is. the fabric is navy and white. The bow is a deep plum/pink, and the lining is variegated in pinks,purples and blues.
The handles contain plastic boning to make them rigid, as does the top edge of the bag and the side seams.
Inside is a small pocket big enough for a mobile phone.
the front has a button and loop fastener.
Everything is top stitched...
