The Pink Auction for Action Breast Cancer

July 27, 2010 by Evin

I’ve been busy lately, which has kept me from sharing new posts here. No, my dog didn’t eat my blog posts, much better than that! As co-chair of the Pink Auction, my time has been spent writing blog posts for the Pink Auction blog, contacting Irish textile artists to tell them about the event and solicit donations, and share my enthusiasm for the cause by spreading the word on TwitterFacebook, and Ravelry. Julie Anne, fellow co-chair and inspiration behind the Pink Auction, and I are Tweeting about the event, our milestones, and retweeting as@PinkCork.

Pink Auction for Action Breast Cancer Perhaps you would be interested in helping us spread the word or in attending the auction in Cork City. The Pink Auction seeks donations of high quality textile art. Creative textile art includes: fashion, jewelry, home accessories, and other items. We also appreciate donations of wool or textile supplies for pre-auction workshops or to be used in the creation of auction items to fill category gaps. Once our donations are received on the 10th of September (being commemorated with a drop-off event at Vibes & Scribes), we will create a catalogue of the items to encourage interest and anticipation of the auction event.

Here are links to a few of my favorite blog posts I’ve written for The Pink Auction Blog:

So, even though I’ve neglected you here, I’ve been providing lovely posts on the Pink Auction blog.

I sincerely hope that after you’ve visited the blog, you’ll:

It’s all in aid of Action Breast Cancer.
