"Having lost my husband to cancer nine years ago, I wanted to make somesmall contribution to something that is so close to my own heart, as well asa joyful way to remember my husband and other friends and relatives who havefought this disease. Since fiber art is both my vocation and my avocation,this seemed a perfect match for me. I was honored to be asked to contributeto the Invitational Reverse Auction, and delighted to accept,² said LindaTeddlie Minton."
