Breast Cancer exhibition

This request for donations has just arrived, asking for scarves, wraps and neck pieces etc to raise awareness and funds for the National Breast Cancer Foundation. The contact person is Belinda Jessup; she can be contacted on 6278 6863 or by email. It is a fairly short deadline - the show will be on next month at Craft ACT, so if you'd like to be involved, you'll need to act promptly :)




As we all know many Australian women are affected by the devastating disease, Breast Cancer. So raising fund for research to find a cure is very important.

We are holding an exhibition and sale for scarves, wraps and contemporary neck pieces to raise funds for the National Breast Cancer Foundation. The exhibition with be held at Craft ACT in Canberra during August 2008.

We ask that you make and donate a piece of work for this exhibition and sale. Work can be in any medium, and you are more than welcome to donate more than one item.

We have set up a blog to coincide with the exhibition and sale and as many images as possible of work for the exhibition will be uploaded to the blog. Accompanying the image would be a short explanation of the work, sale price, materials used and artist details.

This project has the official support of the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Craft Australia, and Craft ACT.

This is what we would love you to do.
