Cork’s Pink Auction in support of Action Breast Cancer - Donation of prizes wanted!

This coming October, we are holding the first ever Pink Auction in Cork City.

The auction will bring together many people with two goals —- to promote creative textiles in Ireland and 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 event will take place at The Imperial Hotel on Sunday, 10th October 2010

We are on Ravelry, Facebook, Twitter, and have our own blog. The more support we can get the more we can do and the better it is for breast cancer awareness. Our flyer is at the top of this page of our blog:


The Pink Auction seeks donations of high quality textile art.

Creative textile art includes: crochet, knitting, lace, quilting, weaving, felting, batik, textile jewellery.

Donations may be in any colour and we actively seek handcrafted blankets, shawls, bags, fashion, baby clothing, mittens, etc…

We anticipate community involvement as we promote creative textiles while encouraging donations. Groups and wool shops can help by hosting small workshops between now and early September, distributing flyers to other knitters/shops in your region, or collecting donations and shipping them to us from your neighborhood textile artists.


We also appreciate donations of wool or textile supplies for pre-auction workshops or to be used in the creation of auction items to fill category gaps (like if we end up with ten scarves and no hats or mittens/gloves).


Thank you so much for taking the time to learn about Cork’s Pink Auction in support of Action Breast Cancer. If you need anymore info, please do not hesitate to contact us at and if you do choose to host an event please let us know how it goes or send photos so we can write a blog post about it.


Yours sincerely,
