One in 10 people reading this knows someone with Alzheimer’s. For one in three, the person with Alzheimer’s is a family member.
Today, The Quilt Show premiers program #712. It features the Alzheimer’s Art Quilt Initiative, our grassroots effort to raise awareness and fund research. If Alzheimer’s has touched your life, please watch this important show and join our fight against Alzheimer’s.
The Quilt Show, hosted by Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims, is a fully produced “television” show filmed in front of a studio audience. It is available on the Internet, 24/7. Click here, to be taken directly to the Alzheimer’s Art Quilt Initiative show.
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. Learn more here.
Here’s a trailer for program #712 of The Quilt Show with the AAQI’s founder and executive director, Ami Simms.
