Our very first post in our very new blog is to tell you what this is all about. The Pink Auction is a creative textile auction to raise funds for and awareness of Action Breast Cancer, a part of the Irish Cancer Society. The auction will be held in October 2010 in Cork City, Ireland.

Get Involved! It doesn't matter if you are a student in secondary school, a fashion designer, or a hobby artist, your generosity makes a difference! Here are some of the ways you can help make this event a success:
• Sew, knit, quilt, crochet, macramé, or create a creative textile piece to donate to the auction.
• Plan a ‘Make-A-Square’ event in your school, community or group of friends. These one-off events will be held all over Cork through August, giving friends and community groups a chance to knit, crochet, felt, quilt, or even silk paint or batik a square that will be part of a larger auction item.
• If you have a café, pub, restaurant, or public space offer to host a ‘Make-A-Square’ event.
• Donate clean unused yarn or fabric to be used by fibre artists to make an auction item.
