THE QUILT SHOW #712 is now ON!!

Alex Anderson, Ami Simms, Ricky Tims

Please share this news with your friends. Thousands of quilters, perhaps someone you know, have written the name(s) of a family member or friend who has/had Alzheimer’s on a purple patch of fabric. Those patches have been stitched into 182 “Name Quilts” honoring more than 10,000 individuals. The”Name Quilts,” along with 53 small format art quilts, make up the AAQI’s new traveling exhibit called “Alzheimer’s Illustrated: From Heartbreak to Hope.” A portion of “Alzheimer’s Illustrated” exhibit is shown on program #712 for the first time anywhere. The AAQI is looking for quilting groups to bring this poignant exhibit to their communities.
