Pink Auction

This coming October, the first ever Pink Auction will be held in Cork City. The auction will bring together many people with two goals (1) to promote creative textiles in Ireland and (2) to raise money for Action Breast Cancer, a programme of the Irish Cancer Society. People within the community as well as around the country are participating by making and donating handcrafted creative textile items to be auctioned off.

The Pink Auction seeks donations of high quality textile art. Creative textile art includes: crochet, knitting, lace, quilting, weaving, felting, batik, textile jewellery. As the auction event approaches, smaller events and workshops will be taking place in the city. Local venues can help by hosting small workshops between now and early September or displaying auction items to spread the excitement for the event. Stores and craft groups can help by donating wool or textile supplies for pre-auction workshops or to be used in auction items. 

The event will take place at The Imperial Hotel, Cork City on Sunday, 10th October 2010.
