A Worthy Cause

Earlier this year, Ami Simms visited the Mountain Laurel Quilt Guild in Wellsboro, PA for a lecture and workshop. After Ami's delightful lecture, the guild surprised her with 30 donated quilts for her pet project, the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative. Ami was quite touched by the gesture.

A number of the quilts were sold at auction on Ami's website and some others went with her to the Houston Quilt Festival in October, hopefully to be sold to raise some money for the charity as well.

A quick check of the website shows that a good number of the quilts were sold! Take a minute or two to check them out on the AAQI website -- the numbers start in the 3870 range.

Nice work, MLQG!
