AAQI!! Hooray!!


Ami Simms started Alzheimer's Art Quilt initiative when her mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. It was a complete grass roots organization run by volunteers and 2013 will be the final year. With Ami's vision and many, many volunteers, quilt maker & quilt buyers AAQI has reached their financial goal of raising $1,000,000 before the end of 2013.

Hip! Hip! Hooray!

  6. This is a wonderful achievement, and truly heart warming, considering the reason for its start. I was happy to participate, not by sewing, but by buying some very special little quilts that I'm proud to own.
