In this issue we share a canine tribute to professional mixed-media artist, Bernie Berlin. An advocate for lost and abandoned dogs, Bernie divides her time between making art and running a canine rescue shelter out of her home (and out of pocket). To celebrate Bernie, many of her online artist friends contributed a mixed-media page to collectively make a "fat book" they called "A Place to Bark" (the name of Bernie's rescue program). Through the announcement in this issue, the fat book with all of the original art will be sold at auction on eBay with the proceeds going to Bernie's rescue program (see page 67 for more details).

There's more news of incredible generosity by our arts community in this issue. See page 76 to find out how fiber artist Virginia Spiegel, along with the help of fiber artists from around the world, raised an eye-popping $13,700 in one month for the American Cancer Society. Amazing!

Lastly, as I write this letter, Hurricane Katrina has just devastated New Orleans and countless other communities. I can't imagine what is in store for the thousands of people who will go home to nothing but wreckage and loss. As millions across the country and the world donate funds (what is needed most), Karey Bresenhan of Quilts, Inc, has launched a two-part drive for Hurricane Katrina relief, Quilters Comfort America, to help the thousands of refugees in a tangible way. To find out how you can help, visit the Quilts, Inc. Web site at Furthermore, in addition to personally donating funds to the American Red Cross, Quilting Arts, LLC, will be hosting a 24-hour Web site drive, where all proceeds will go to the American Red Cross as well. From midnight October 5th through midnight October 6th (EDT), proceeds from retail items and subscriptions purchased online at will go directly to the relief efforts. And we will continue to organize and collaborate with artists and organizations on an on-going basis as the full impact of this disaster is realized. To find out about opportunities that you can participate in and details of our 24-hour drive, check our Web site at
