There is a very special message posted by the Executive Director of Alzheimers`Art Quilt Initiative (AAQI), Ami Simms, here . The message explains why 2013 will bring the AAQI to a close. If you follow my blog you will likely already be aware that I support this cause by making small art quilts for sale and auction. With an end in sight for AAQI, I need to step up to the plate and get to work if I hope to attain my goal of making enough quilts to raise $1,000.00 for them. So, like AAQI`s goal of raising $1,000,000.00 before they close their doors, I have my own goal in sight. This month`s AAQI auction , starting Friday, features name quilts from the AAQI traveling exhibit "Alzheimer's Illustrated: From Heartbreak to Hope." You can read more about the exhibit here . It features 236 quilts. Long, narrow "Name Quilts" are made from 55 purple patches, each marked with the name of a person who has/had Alzheimer's disease or a related dementia.
I have lots of posts on embroidery, needlework and crazy quilting. Right now, in the time of Covid pandemic, my interests have turned to living frugally, gardening, cooking, etc. A regular Suzie Homemaker!
