RARE Science works directly with patient families and foundations to find more immediate therapeutic solutions for children with rare diseases.
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.
- Every day for the next few weeks as we lead up to the Auction we are revealing an adorable new Celebrity bear for you to admire.
- 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 BERNINA and many other gifts!
Meet "Artist On The Go" by Sue Bleiweiss
Sue's bear is ready for her next outing. This smart girl is wearing a jacket and hat in case of inclement weather. She has also brought along a backpack filled with supplies should she be hit by the need to create.
Artist On The Go was constructed with Sue's hand dyed 100% cotton fabric, the only exception being the denim for the jacket. She even comes with her own handmade blank sketchbook and a custom made backpack filled with a set of colored pencils, Sue's Coloring Book Fabric Collage DVD, a copy of Easy Fabric Dyeing: solids & tone on tone prints book, a package of Mistyfuse, a mini Goddess pressing sheet and seven of her hand-dyed cotton fat quarters.
