Auction for MS

The National Multiple Sclerosis Society's Los Angeles MS Walk will be held on April 15th to bring awareness to this devastating disease.  You may be aware, that since 1993 I've taught yoga classes for those living with MS, initially through the NMSS and now independently.  Long time student, Beth Atkins, with her "Crazy Beth's Crew" have participated in this walk for 11 years.  I have supported the Walk in a number of ways over the years, and this time I am trying something different.  Inspired by online auction efforts of my friend, Sally Gould Wright, I am placing one of my mini quilts up for auction this week to support Crazy Beth's Crew as they raise money for the NMSS.

I am sending a little sunshine to the cause with:
Linda A Miller - Fire Series 1





Fire Series 1  
11.5" x 9"
Made in 2008

Materials: Cotton, silk ribbon, fabric paint
Techniques:  Fused applique, painted, thread painted and machine quilted 

The quilt has a sleeve on the back and dowel ready for hanging.

Here are the details for the auction:  The highest bidder by 10 pm (PST) on April 12, 2012 will receive the quilt (I will cover the shipping, if within the U.S.).  100% of the final winning bid price will go as a donation to the NMSS in care of Crazy Beth's Crew.  Throughout the week I will post "highest bid" updates on the blog, and also in the comments section for this particular post.
If you are interested, all you need to do is email me your bid.  I will post the bids on my blog.  I will announce how much the quilt has sold for, and contact that person with info on how/where to send payment.  For a tax deduction, the check can be made out to NMSS with "Crazy Beth's Crew" written in the note section. The quilt will be mailed once the payment has been received.  I will forward on the donation, in the winner's name, to Beth Atkins for the NMSS.  The winner can remain anonymous of they prefer.

Of course, even if you do not want to participate in the auction, you can still donate to the NMSS by checking the website.

This auction is now open.  Good luck and have fun!
