I’d like to introduce you to a little project I was invited to be a part of. RARE Science works directly with patient families and foundations to find more immediate therapeutic solutions for children with rare diseases. Sweet little Teddy Bears are sewn then donated to children with rare diseases. In this case, a number of artists have created some very special bears to raise funds for research
This year RARE Science is partnering with TQS (and a number of other great organizations) to bring you… the FIRST Ever Celebrity RARE Bear Auction! This is your opportunity to own a signed bear made by the quilt world’s most talented artists while helping a great cause.
- Bears will be on display at Houston in the RARE Science booth. Can’t make it to Houston, not a problem. You can bid on your favorite bear via the online auction.
- Not interested in the auction, that’s ok. But, we would love for you to vote for your favorites when the time comes. More about that later
- But wait, there’s more…Have you heard about the Beary RARE Affair? Stuff a RARE Bear for a RARE kid, Meet Celebrity Quilters and get a chance to win a Simply Red BERNINAand many other gifts!
I hope you will participate in the auction – either online or in person at the International Quilt Festival November 2 – 6 in Houston, TX.
