What can you make?! (You mean you don’t know?)
You can make a rather odd, but efficient, tool to video 7-foot long Name Quilts from the AAQI’s traveling exhibit “Alzheimer’s Illustrated: From Heartbreak To Hope.”
I’m delighted to announce that all 182 Name Quilts which contain more than 10,000 names of individuals who have or had Alzheimer’s or a related dementia, have been video
ed, documented, and transcribed so that you can search for the name you wrote or submitted for this project: www.TheNameQuilts.wordpress.com
Below is a video peek behind the scenes of how this amazing “machine” works.
Thirty of these name quilts are in the AAQI’s April online auction. Please bid generously as all profits fund Alzheimer’s research. Yes, you read that correctly. The April auction will be the last Name Quilt auction. The remaining Name Quilts will be offered for sale in the Fall. We will go back to auctioning Priority: Alzheimer’s Quilts with the May auction.
Here is the revised schedule for 2013:
April 1, 2013: A selection of 30 Name Quilts will be auctioned during April. The rest of the Name Quilts will be offered for sale during the Fall.
May, May, June, July, August, and September: We will return to auctioning Priority: Alzheimer’s Quilts. The 54 Priority: Alzheimer’s Quilts from the traveling exhibit will be auctioned during the first 10 days of October and December.

August 1, 2013: Last day to register Priority: Alzheimer’s Quilts. Quilts delivered to scanners after August 20 will be refused.

Any funds not needed to sustain the AAQI’s final expenses will be donated to research. Remaining assets will be disposed of according to IRS regulations after which time the corporation will be dissolved.
