Much Work To Be Done

This week Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative contributors received news that executive director, Ami Simms, is retiring and the AAQI will be suspending operations at the end of 2013.  To date, the AAQI has raised over $883,000 dollars for Alzheimer's research, an amazing number in itself, but the goal before the end of the year is to reach the $1,000,000 mark!  Yes, retirement is coming, but there is still much work to be done!  I will continue to make quilts for the AAQI throughout the year, but I think my main focus will be working on building my personal AAQI art quilt collection.  After December these little gems will no longer be available for sale, so the time to shop is now!  Let's help Ami reach that $1,000,000 goal before she takes that much deserved retirement!

Three of my quilts are currently up for sale on the AAQI website...

10152 - Good To The Last Scrap
12046 - Pink Reminders
12227 - Ripple Effect

I had not heard about Ami's retirement. What a wonderful project and I'll be sure to head over to see your quilts. One of my local guilds is hosting a challenge that coordinates with Ami's AAQI so we can all donate our challenge quilts.

Thanks for letting me know!
