The Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative - AAQI has done wonderful work in raising funds for medical research for this dreaded disease. With the help of the quilting community and many wonderful volunteers, Ami Simms has raised over a million dollars. She has devoted much of her life to this cause and accomplished more than she ever dreamed possible.
The AAQ Initiative is coming to an end. There are still many opportunities to purchase a small piece on line, bid on a quilt online at the monthly auction or if you're planning a trip to the International Quilt Festival in the fall, buy one in person.
Hope you'll visit their website and consider buying one of these small pieces of art to help such a great cause....
I'm connected to Nina Maries Off the Wall Friday...check it out.
