My Article About AAQI is in Embroidery Canada!

Well, it was pretty exciting when I went to the mailbox and received the latest issue of Embroidery Canada, the magazine of the Embroidery Association of Canada (EAC).  There on the cover was one of the little quilts I have made and donated to the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative!  Inside the magazine was the article I wrote and submitted some time back - far enough back in fact that I had forgotten all about it.  If you would like to read the article, you can see it  here.

One thing I would like to mention is that because the article was actually written so long ago, it does not mention the wonderful contributions made by my home chapter of EAC, the Calgary Guild of Needle & Fibre Arts.  The guild has its own page on the AAQI website where you can see the quilts made and donated by guild members.  All six of the quilts currently on the page are now up for sale at the big quilt show in Houston.  CGNFA also has a sale table of excess stitching stash donated by members at each meeting and all the proceeds are sent to AAQI as well.
