On Dec. 10, TMC Volunteers raised another $3000 for the Museum during our first Textile Temptations sale. There was a lineup before the sale began at our 401 Richmond workroom, and we were busy throughout the day. We sold fabrics left over from our More Than Just a Yardage Sale and For the Love of Cloth. We also sold some wonderful new molas donated to the TMC Volunteer Association by Max Allen. A special thank you to Max for his continued generosity!
Textile Temptations was held in conjunction with an annual sale by artists at 401 Richmond St. W., so we reached some new customers. Using the workroom in this way seemed to be an efficient and effective way to raise funds for the Museum. TMC Volunteers prepared the goods and helped during the sale. Thanks go to all who participated. – Andrea Diplock
