September 2008 - As the struggle against breast cancer rages on, we know that many of our creative friends support the cause through special quilting, sewing and craft projects, and Marcus continues to design new "pink ribbon" fabrics and coordinates designed with these projects in mind.
In keeping with its practice of giving back to the community, Marcus Fabrics has chosen Susan G. Komen for the Cure as the recipient of its 2008 contribution, based on the sales of its pink ribbon fabrics. Formerly known as the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, the organization works through a wide range of programs to save lives and end breast cancer forever by empowering people, ensuring quality care for all and energizing science to find the cures.

Marcus recently introduced its newest pink ribbon fabric collections, LOVE AND HARMONY and LOVE & HARMONY FLANNEL, both designed by Faye Burgos. They arrive in quilt shops worldwide just as manyOctober 2008 events begin and the cause is prominent in the minds of many. Their impact will endure for cause-related quilting and crafting all year long, and Marcus is committed to maintaining its support of worthwhile causes in the fight against cancer through the continued sales of its specialty fabrics in the years to come.
