A couple of weeks ago, I found out about this thing called Tote Tuesday. Virginia Spiegel, a fiber artist from Midwest, has been raising money for the American Cancer Society for several years by holding auctions for donated fiber artworks. This year she decided to do something a little different. On the 4 Tuesdays in February, there is bidding for a few artworks but mainly for totes filled with various themed goodies. I won the bidding for the tote below, donated by the publisher of Machine Quilting Unlimited magazine. It included the orange batik quilted tote, some back issues of the magazine plus a subscription, a DVD by Kim Brunner, some rulers, some thread, scissors, chalk, and some hand-dyed fabric by Diane Rusin Doran. Quite a nice package!
