Ami Simms continues to be THE quilting ambassador for raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer's research. You can now create a Virtual Quilt Patch on her website in honor of - or in remembrance of - someone you know affected by Alzheimer's. To create your own virtual patch - click here.
Put your Virtual Quilt Patches on your website or blog by this Sunday to mark World Alzheimer's Day and to remember the 26.6 million people worldwide who have this disease. Send a link so the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative (AAQI) can link to your blog or website. No place to put your patch? Simply send the HTML code generated after you create and save your patch to Ami at AmiSimms@aol.com. She'll post a picture of your Virtual Quilt Patch on the AAQI website.
Want to help with a needle and thread? Ami hopes to bring 1,000 Priority: Alzheimer's Quilts to International Quilt Festival in Houston. These will be sold to raise money for Alzheimer's research. These quilts are just 9" x 12" and can be any theme, any technique, and any ability. If you can whip one up, register it, and ship it off by the end of the month chances are pretty good your quilt will be turned into research dollars in Houston. Here are the details.
