Alzheimer's Art Quilts in Houston at IQA Show

The International Quilt Show starts next Wednesday in Houston.  I have attended for the last 20 years and still get excited when I walk thru the doors.  The quilts are always wonderful, but I must confess that the rows and rows of vendors are my favorite part. 

I always stop by the Alzheimer's Art Quilt booth and buy a quilt or two to support this dedicated organization.  I have attached some information about this worthy cause below.  If you attend the show, stop by or check them out online.

The Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative is offering more than 2,100 Priority: Alzheimer's Quilts for sale at International Quilt Festival in Houston, TX (Oct 31-Nov 4). Please head over to the front of the Exhibit Hall, Row S to see amazing small format art quilts (9" x 12") created to fight Alzheimer's. All profits fund research.
If you would like to help sell quilts, rope people into the booth (it is Texas, after all) or generally lend a hand, the AAQI needs you. Sign up for 2-3 hour time slots (and get free admission on the days you volunteer) or join the AAQI Text Brigade and help "as needed." Learn more and sign up here:
