Alzheimer’s Art Quilt Initiative Quilt Auction

August 7, 2011

The Alzheimer’s Art Quilt Initiative (AAQI) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit whose mission is to raise awareness and fund research through art. Toward that end the charity sponsors a nationally touring exhibit of quilts about Alzheimer’s.

Twenty quilts from the AAQI’s first traveling exhibit, “Alzheimer’s: Forgetting Piece by Piece” are being auctioned online now through August 10.

Many of the auction quilts were made by very well known quiltmakers, including Diane Gaudynski, Sue Nickels, Marsha McCloskey, Mary Stori, and Melody Crust.

The AAQI’s new traveling exhibit, “Alzheimer’s Illustrated: From Heartbreak to Hope,” has begun traveling this year. They are accepting bookings through 2015.

More than $570,000 raised for Alzheimer’s research since January 2006. Help us make a difference…one quilt at a time.

For more information about the quilt auction and this all-volunteer organization and their new traveling exhibit, please visit http://www.AlzQuilts.org or call 810 637-5586.

    Not sure how I missed this blog! I usually try to chime in on posta about the AAQI because I feel so strongly about the fight against Alzheimer’s. And the AAQI is a way to participate in raising money for research without opening your wallet. I also love knowing that we’re all volunteer so that the money isn’t wasted on overhead and salaries. We have a website, a PO box and all volunteer staff. Thanks for posting about the AAQI, Marsha!
