I’m interviewed today on Virginia Spiegel’s blog

Virginia Spiegel has an interview with me on her blog today. It is publicity for her next big fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. Virginia’s “Fiberart For a Cause” has already raised more than $215,000 for them, and in February, she is hoping to raise $7,000 for the ACS in just ten hours over two days through “Foto/Fiber.” I’m donating two handmade pieces of usable art as bonuses. I hope you’ll mark your calendar for Feb. 15 and 16, 2012, and consider making a donation to this worthy cause. 

Here is Virginia’s post about how this fundraiser works:
