Bead Artists Against Breast Cancer

Once again Jeanette Shanigan is hosting the Bead Artists against Breast Cancer beaded quilts to be auctioned off in Milwaukee in June 2009.

Jeanette has collected beaded squares and sewn them together in beaded quilts to be auctioned off to raise money for breast cancer research for several years in memory of her mother who died of cancer in 1985. Read her story.

If you're a beader and would like to contribute to this worthy cause you can find the guidelines here.

Squares that have already been donated

Jeanette already has some free patterns on her website if you can't make your own, and I'll be posting one here shortly.

Every year more beaders join this worthy cause. Last year 960 squares were donated. Every year the number has gone up. Lets make this a banner year!
