Group Description

I would like to invite you to join this collaborative project. The objective is to create a hanging quilt that will be auctioned on ebay on behalf of the Tsunami Victims. I would like that we could create a inspiring quilt that will assemble different fabric arts and crafts, and send a message of hope to those who have lost everything. So please create one or more squares and send them to me to be assembled. I'll post pictures as soon as you send them.

This is an project open to everyone.

To participate please create a 15 x 15 cm square (aprox. 6 inches square) out of a textile medium and embellish your contribution.

The square can be of fabric, wool, felt or something else that you can figure out. Beads, threads, fabric manipulation, collage, quilt, transfer, paints... all mediums are welcomed

***Do you think it is a good idea to embroider your place of origin on their squares? Envisioning an international quilt?.

When you are done please send your contribution in an envelope to:

Marta Santiago Jimenez
c/General Alvarez de Castro 16 1A
Madrid 28010

All squares will be assembled in a quilt. that will be sold at ebay. All proceeds will be donated to UNICEF to provide relief from the Sumatra earthquake.

***If any of you have any PR (Public Relations) experience and is willing to help find more upmarket auctions, please contact me

Please send your address in the envelope to include a complete list of participants.

Deadline: Feb/15/2005
