Dallas Area Fiber Artists Support the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative

We are busy watching the action on the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative site with the monthly auctions. Last month a few of our members' art quilts sold from the “ForSale” section, and Super Highway by April Soncrant has been selected for the September Quilt Auction.

A link has been added to the blog sidebar for the Alzheimer’s Art Quilt Initiative. You will also be able to keep an eye on the sales progress of the DAFA art quilts.

The Dallas Area Fiber ARTists have our own page so visitors to the AAQI website will know about us and see the quilts we have donated to AAQI.  

On August 15, AAQI wrote about DAFA's participation and our Priority Art Quilt project. It was very exciting for those of us who "Like" AAQI on Facebook to see the post.

The volunteers with Alzheimer’s Art Quilt Initiative are busy sorting and selecting art quilts to take to the InternationalQuilt Festival in Houston in November.  They are listing the art quilts they are pulling for Houston, and some of the DAFA art quilts have already been selected.

During our September meeting April Soncrant and Denise Spillane will let us know about the next Priority Quilt Challenge for DAFA. Plus, Lu Peters will let us know about a 2013 show for which we have been asked to be the exhibitors.
